As years have gone on, society has changed and people have lost the customs of the past. We have forgotten our etiquette and traditions as well as our appreciation for what others have done for us. I am on a mission to bring the days-of-old back into our modern lifestyle. And here at Inspiring Pretty we are going to start with the Hostess Gift. A Hostess Gift? What’s that? Some of you may know what this is, and some of you may already partake in this thankful gift-giving but just not know it. However, there are many out there who have not grown up in a society or family where this custom (and down right sense of manners) was taught and passed down. Folks, this is something that everyone – no matter what socioeconomic standings you are in – should do. It is your way of simply saying ‘thank you’ to your host or hostess, whether you are a dinner guest or a weekend visitor in their home.
