Host/Hostess Gift

Recently, we suggested bringing one of our lovely tea boxes as a host/hostess gift. But when do you bring your host a gift of this value? We asked leading etiquette expert Emily Post.

When you're the guest of honor
Bring a gift for your host or hostess, or send flowers before the party. After the party, send a thank-you note.

It's customary to bring a gift to a housewarming. It doesn't have to be expensive, but it should be something lasting for the house. 

Overnight stay
A gift is mandatory. You can present the gift upon your arrival, during your stay, or after your exit. The longer the stay, the more expensive or elaborate the gift. For example, for a weekend stay, you may decide to send flowers. If you’ve stayed for three nights or more, a gift certificate to the host’s favorite spa or restaurant would be a good bet.
