Hostess Gift Problem

by Nancy

I'm going to a friend's tonight and bought a bottle of champagne to bring as a hostess

gift. When I asked my friend what I can bring, she responded: a bottle of champagne.
What should I do?

Hostess Gift

This response is not timely enough to affect your situation, but perhaps it can clarify this for others.

Bring your bottle of champagne and relax​. You need not bring an additional hostess gift when bring items requested. A hostess gift is a way to contribute to the gathering while expressing your gratitude. The wine is your contribution. Send a nice thank you note the next day and you are all set.
