Hostess Gift

Southerner's, y'all gather round real close now. Let me tell ya a tale of sorts. A tale so horrid ya ought not repeat it. You’re cleanin’ your house mindin’ your own business. And then wham bam, there it is starin’ ya in the face… a little envelope. You know what it is as soon as ya look at it. Ya’know that holiday invitation you misplaced. The one you kinda wished ya hadn’t RSVP’d for.

You sigh as you place it on the counter next to your keys. Now, there’s no time to clean when you haven’t a thing to wear. You begin to busy yourself with preparations. Location, dress code and the list goes on and on. You are a good Southerner after all. You wouldn’t dare leave the house any less. And then it dawns on ya. You can’t leave the house empty handed. Your Momma raised you better than that. Now, if you don’t know what I’m talkin’ about then we need to talk. It’s time I teach ya about an age old tradition here in the South. Really, it needs to be everywhere ‘cause it’s just plain good manners as my Momma would say.

Here in the South you always RSVP and never leave the house empty handed. You always bring the person hostin’ the party or dinner a gift. It doesn’t have to be lavish. Sort of a thank you for all they’ve done.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve rushed at the last minute tryin’ to find the perfect gift. It’s a known rule that wine is always ok but maybe you just ain’t near a place that has that. Don’t worry ‘cause I got y’all covered.

This is where  Hallmark Gold Crown Store comes in. As a child Hallmark was my favorite. Many holiday seasons spend starin’ at the elaborate Christmas set up. Granny had the entire town collection. It was a little bitter sweet when she had to downsize and donate her collection. But, that’s neither here nor there. These days Hallmark has expanded and is just a great place for those last minute gifts.

I'mma need y'all to jump on these goodies and cards
