It’s holiday party season, and you don’t want to show up to the party empty handed. It’s a season of giving, and your holiday hostess deserves a more thoughtful gift than a bottle of wine or flowers. I try to give a more personalized hostess gift and share some of the things that I really love.
Putting on a holiday party is a lot of work. Bringing a hostess gift is a great way to show your appreciation. It doesn’t even have to be an expensive gift, just a thoughtful one. It’s very simple to create your own gift basket and it is sure to be appreciated. I am so excited to partner with Sahale Snacks to share a fabulous holiday hostess gift idea with you.
Throughout the year, I have the privilege of working with a lot of terrific brands. But there are a few that are very near and dear to my heart. Sahale Snacks is one of them. The company was founded by and is run by some pretty amazing people, and the snacks themselves are made with the best carefully sourced ingredients, and are oh-so delicious.
Sahale Snacks snack mixes, blends and bars contain only the best nuts available, naturally dried preservative-free fruits, and fabulous ingredients like lemongrass, honey, chipotle chili, and pure ground Madagascar vanilla beans. It’s something you can feel really good about gifting to your holiday hostess. You might want to gift some Sahale Snacks to yourself too, while you’re at it.
When choosing a basket for a holiday hostess gift, make sure it is plenty big and something that can be re-purposed by the hostess later on. I get so excited when a gift comes in a nice sturdy basket that I can use to store craft or office supplies.
Fill the bottom of the basket with a little paper shred. When you are on the receiving end of a package that has shredded paper in it, don’t throw it away. This stuff has so many uses. You can use it when creating your own gift baskets like this Sahale Snacks gift basket, or as padding when shipping packages.
This holiday hostess gift basket contains 2 bags of Sahale Snacks in two of my favorite varieties – Valdosta Pecans and the Balsamic Almonds Glazed Mix. Also, I added a pretty wooden serving bowl that I recently picked up with this hostess gift in mind.
To spruce the basket up a bit, you can add a holiday pic or some small ornaments. Keep it simple.
You can purchase clear cellophane bags to wrap the basket in. I usually pick mine up from the local dollar store, and keep a few on hand. I’m kinda loving how this hostess gift turned out. This is a holiday hostess gift that is sure to get me invited back.
Sahale Snacks are delicious snacks that go beyond ordinary. You can find Sahale Snacks at many grocery, convenience, and bulk food stores such as 7 Eleven, Walmart, Costco Wholesale, Kroger, Safeway, Whole Foods Market, and Hudson News stores in airports.
This post is sponsored by J.M. Smucker Company as part of an ongoing #SahaleInspire project. Over the next year, I look forward to sharing my snacking experiences with you.
