Pop quiz, hot shot: You’re going to a party thrown by a host/ess who has everything. What do you bring? You could pay twenty bucks for a bottle of wine that will immediately go into the collection of other bottles, or grab some flowers that will require the host to take time out of her busy hostessing schedule to throw them in water, or bring a dessert that the host will feel obligated to put out at the end of the night even if it doesn’t at all go with the menu.
But we have a better idea. Why not make your host a “you partied too hard” package, so that upon awakening to a houseful of dirty dishes and multiple overflowing bags of recycling to be taken out, he or she will have a little something from a special someone (you) to help them power through. We promise your gift will be appreciated more than that cheap scented candle or box of chocolate-covered macadamia nuts.
“You Partied Too Hard” Hostess Gift How-To
This is as simple as collecting your favorite tried-and-tested hangover remedies and presenting them in a charming manner. For this box, we picked out:
● Five Hour Energy (B vitamins and energy!)
● Rebootizer (a detox elixir made from dandelion and acerola!)
● Emergen-C (vitamin C and B vitamins, anyone?)
● Maker’s Mark bourbon (hair of the dog)
● and a few little candies as oh-so-necessary comfort food
Wrap it all up in a cute box or baggie, and be sure to include a card so the recipient knows to invite you to every party they ever throw in the future, you excellent guest, you.
