Beginning this week, we look forward to being invited to gatherings to celebrate Thanksgiving, and next month, Christmas. It is always appropriate to give your hostess a thank you gift for being included in these holiday festivities. I enjoy finding something that I think the hostess will like. Although it may be tempting to grab a random gift from the grocery or wine store shelf, think ahead this year and order a few hostess gifts that offer something more thoughtful.
Biltmore Inspirations offers several very reasonably priced options for inexpensive gifts (less than $20, plus shipping and handling.) All of these items are inspired by something within the Biltmore House, America’s largest home, located in Asheville, North Carolina. Check out these ideas and visit this website to place an order: Biltmore Inspirations Website.
