Advice Needed!

Hi all! I am writing this quick post to ask for your help. Michael and I have been invited to a wine and cheese party tonight. I just found out about it last night because Michael forgot to tell me. I don't know the couple very well, but we have been building a friendship with them over the past few weeks. What should I bring as a hostess gift? I would normally take something like a bottle of wine, but since it is a wine and cheese party I wasn't sure if I should bring wine. My other thoughts were flowers or maybe even one of those really cute wine stoppers. What are your ideas? Thanks in advance for your help! Y'all are the best!!!

If not wine, perhaps an Autumn sented candle? You know with cinnamon and spice perhaps? Hope that helps! Have fun at your party.

I would suggest a cute wine stopper or wine glass charms/ name lables that go around the stems. Maybe even a wine journal or label lift kit to keep their favorites?

I like the idea of a cool wine stopper. In my opinion you can never go wrong with stationary.

I love the wine stopper idea... You may want to hop into a local gift shop and see if they have any monogram items. Anything kitchen-y with their last initial would be really personal and very appreciated!

I would agree with a cool wine stopper, or maybe a cool wine bottle opener? It's always nice to have more than one of those!

I vote really cute wine topper! They have some monogrammed ones at TJ Maxx for like $6.00! You could also through in a cute handled cheese knife to round out the theme.

I'd bring a bottle of wine in a cute wine bag (swoozie) or with a bottle stopper tied around the neck. That is my "signature" hostess gift. I don't think that it matters that it is a wine party! Just get to a swoozie! They always have the CUTEST gifts. You can also normally find really cute monogrammed cocktail napkins at Tuesday Morning (the junk kills me but it IS worth a look!) Post about what you decide!

I like the idea of a wine stopper, but even more, I love the idea of a wine journal. My sister and her boyfriend have one, and they use it all the time, and they love it!

I like the wine stopper idea. Or you could get some wine charms. Sounds like a great party! Hope you have fun!

I think the wine stopper is a lovely idea. And, I agree with Belle maybe if you could find their monogram for one. I, also, like the wine charms idea too!!! A candle is always nice=)
