The holidays are coming and so are the festivities. Whether you’re staying overnight in someone’s home or attending a party, we never show up empty handed as a guest. Hostess gifts don’t have to be elaborate or expensive; it truly is the thought that counts. Instead of a typical bottle of wine or flowers, we’ve pulled together a few options from the Charlotte shops that any host is sure to love.
