2013 Gift Guide: 20 Entertaining Gifts for Your Favorite Host or Hostess

entertaining
This is the list for that friend who always throws that great party or for anyone who just moved into a new space. Actually, I don’t care who you are, when you’re throwing a party, you can always use another platter or serving spoon. If you’re bringing a dish to a party, why not bring it with a beautiful serving piece that the hostess can keep – and it doesn’t have to be something new. Vintage stores are stocked with great serving pieces just looking for a good home. -Amy
