Every year, more and more adults decide that there is no reason for kids to have all the Halloween fun. Costume parties for adults are all the rage and chances are you are invited to at least one this year. After deciding on your Halloween costume and arranging for a babysitter, the next item on your list should be deciding what to bring your holiday hostess. You don’t need to spend a ton of money, but a simple and thoughtful Halloween hostess gift lets her know that you appreciate the hospitality and wish her a lovely holiday season.
Give Your Halloween Hostess A Variety Of Autumn Scented Candles.
Giving your hostess several Fall scented candles will ensure her home will smell sweet and inviting through Thanksgiving. Assemble a gift bag filled with Cranberry, Pumpkin or Apple Spice candles. You can fill the bag with votive, pillar or three wick candles depending on your budget and the hostess’ preferences. An Autumn themed candle ring or tray is a nice touch.
Bake A Fall Treat For Your Halloween Hostess.
Baking a loaf of cranberry or pumpkin bread and wrapping the bread in festive cellophane will surely be a hit with your hostess. If time is a factor, a box of already cut Halloween themed cookies arranged on an orange platter is also a nice gesture and takes nearly no time or money at all.
Use Your Creativity To Make Your Hostess A Fall Centerpiece Or Wreath.
If you are the crafty kind, a quick trip to the local arts and crafts store can get you all the supplies needed to give your Halloween hostess a lovely Fall decor item. A plain grapevine wreath can be dressed up with wooden Halloween cutouts and tied with an orange or black ribbon. A bag of pine cones and decorative gourds and pumpkins can be used to create a seasonal centerpiece for your hostess’ dining room or kitchen table.
Bring Your Halloween Hostess A Specialized Jack O’ Lantern.
If carving jack o’ lanterns for the Fall holiday is your forte, use your special skills to bring your party hostess a lovely jack o’ lantern to display during the party. Try to carve the pumpkin in a design that reflects her personality and interests. Special jack ‘o lantern stencils are available at arts and crafts or discount department stores, or you can carve the pumpkin free hand. Your Halloween hostess will surely love this special pumpkin carved in her honor.
Give Your Halloween Party Hostess A Jump Start On Holiday Decorating.
If your party hostess loves this time of year and always decorates her house to the hilt for the winter holidays, give her a jump start on the festivities. A gift ball filled with some pretty and unique Thanksgiving or Christmas decorations will surely come in handy. She will love your thoughtfulness and look forward to putting these decorations on display right after Halloween.
Bring Your Signature Dish To The Halloween Party.
If people rave about your homemade spinach dip, or your chocolate chip cheesecake, offer your specialty for the holiday party. Make the presentation of your signature dish a festive treat. Use orange or purple cellophane to wrap your goody, or place your snack in a holiday themed bowl or platter. Any dish or snack can be given a holiday flair by being a bit creative with the packaging and presentation. Your party hostess will love the addition to the buffet and appreciate the bit of Halloween color it adds to the table.
