Believe it or not, folks — the holidays are upon us once again. Malls and online stores are filling up with turkeys and snowmen and lights and all the fixin’s! This also means that many people will be spending their Thanksgiving and Christmas in the home of another hospitable soul.
Hostesses during the holiday season are the backbone of so many wonderful memories. They provide the lodging, the food, the warmth, the clean living rooms and tidy dining rooms. They command the kitchen like a drill sergeant, they fill up empty glasses, cut the pies, place out the silverware and often greet you with a warm smile on their face and flour on their aprons. We love hostesses, especially the ones who have been doing it for as long as we can remember.
It takes work to pull off a holiday feast and the hostesses deserve some love and recognition from all of the happy hearts and full bellies. We have some ideas to give them a little more than a “Thank you!” this year:
Our “Cook the Texan Way!” Gift Set includes:
- Border Town Tortilla Soup Mix
- Truly Texas Chili Mix
- A Texas Lonestar State Trivet to hold these hot dishes on your kitchen table
- Cordon Bubba Texas Cuisine Cookbook with all kinds of award-winning Traditional Texas Recipes
- Green Chile & Cilantro Dip Mix
- And to top this special gift off, we have a Life is Good In Texas Apron for that special Chef
For a more Thanksgiving – themed “thank you!” try our Harvest Howdy Gift Basket:
- Wild West Peanut Brittle
- 3oz. Authentic Texas Tortilla Chips
- 8oz. Salsa Ranchera
- Chewy Praline
- 2oz. Cowboy Snack Mix
- Harvest Trail Mix
- Shortbread Cookies
Whether you will be under the roof of a first-time holiday hostess, or a seasoned veteran of holiday feast-making, be sure to take time to acknowledge and honor their hard work, not just their delicious handiwork!
If you are the one who will be wearing the hostess title this holiday season, let us be the first to tip our hats and say, “Thank you!”
