What the heck is a hostess gift and where do I get one?
Your significant other calls you and says: “Honey, don’t forget we are invited to the dinner party at so and so’s house on Sunday, I really need you to get a hostess gift for us to bring.” So, your first thought is, what the heck is a hostess gift, and where do I get one? Where go you go for advice? …. Hmmm… Google … I can google it. Let’s see, hostess gift definition…. “A hostess gift by definition is something a host or a hostess would use in the course of entertaining. It could be entertaining for just their immediate family or for a future party.” Ok, that is not so helpful, and why is just a hostess gift, why not a host gift or a host and hostess gift? Wait, I need to get back on track here… Alright, so maybe flowers. Who am I kidding? I am not buying flowers to bring to our friends house. I will go to the mall. Damn, I have to park a mile away, so many choices, well not really, what the heck do I get? I am not finding anything, I don’t know what the heck to buy. This is taking way too long. I just want to play golf. I know, liquor store…ok, Jack Daniels, how can you go wrong with Jack Daniels, hmmm, maybe I should go with wine….Yup that’s it bottle of wine, gift bag, done, but I missed my tee time.
Sunday arrives and you have your bottle of wine in the nice foil package, all set. Your friends greet you at the door and you proudly hand over the bottle of wine, thinking I don’t even drink wine .. should have gotten the Jack. The “hostess” thanks you and proceeds to welcome you into her home and puts the bottle of wine next to the other six bottles of wine on the counter.
You did you job and everyone is happy, maybe except you, but let me rewrite history for you: Your significant other calls you and says: “Honey, don’t forget we are invited to the dinner party at so and so’s house on Sunday, I really need you to get a hostess gift for us to bring.” So, your first thought is: I am going on www.ManCaveCT.com I am going to find a cool gift and have it shipped to me in time for the party, then I can go play golf. Or better yet, I am gonna stop in Middletown, see Ericka or Sara at the Man Cave store in Main Street Market. They can help me pick out a party game, and a cocktail mixer or a kit to infuse some bourbon or tequila. They'll even wrap it for me in a cool gift bag. And while I am there I can grab a cigar and some beef jerky and still go play golf. Mission accomplished. Our friends love my gifts. Everyone at the party ends up playing my game, we drink all the bourbon, and I am the hero. Everyone has a great time. My significant other is happy. My buddy got in trouble with his wife because all he brought was a bottle of wine. Sucker…he should have gone to the Man Cave. Thanks Man Cave. You guys are awesome.
