My favorite hostess gift to receive is definitely a festive holiday apron. I always wear an apron in the kitchen, a trait I picked up from my Gran who always had an apron on, even when she wasn’t in the kitchen.  I’m a messy cook, so a festive apron makes my day a little brighter when I am spending a large amount of time cooking (and cleaning) in the kitchen.
