Q: My husband and I will be attending a dinner part hosted by a couple who don’t drink alcohol. Usually, I’d bring a bottle of wine as a preset-what’s a good alternative?
A: Hostess gifts should always be matched to their recipients. Though wine’s out, the options are endless: a potted plant, homemade blueberry muffins, or decorative coasters are a few possibilities. Or choose something tied to your host’s favorite hobbies- a selection of flower bulbs or a few golf balls of their preferred brand.
