I never seem to be prepared enough to come up with really cool hostess gifts. Not only does that take time (in which we don't have), it takes forethought. One of my goals for 2011 is having awesome hostess gifts on hand — at all times. Cleverness goes a long way, after all.

Thank goodness I stumbled upon this ingenious recipe box from kate spade. It contains chic note cards with clever little sayings, such as "a round of applause," "i heard you were under the weather," "for no particular reason," and "the icing on the cake." How cute is that!

I gave one as a gift over the holidays and I snagged a few more online today. Now, I just need to stumble upon a dozen more fabulous gifts to add to my 2011 hostess collection.
