What was the best gift you ever brought to someone who was hosting you for a shabbos meal? (i.e. the gift that your host really loved)
If you were hosting someone, what would you want as a gift?
Good Shabbos!!January 14, 2011 3:12 am at 3:12 am #727947deiyezoogerMember

fancy serving dishes, to beautify table, can get nice silver & glass combo pcs – really beautiful!
with lower budget – home made pie, cake, salads
For no time lower budget – a nice bottle of alcohol – one of the newer stuffJanuary 14, 2011 3:28 am at 3:28 am #727950rcParticipant
i entertain a lot and i love using and getting and giving little decorative cocktail forks and spoons. I use them for chrain, pickles, olives etc. i can never have enough cuz i keep losing them. also the little dishes that would accompany such a thing are nice. fill them up with shabbos treats. nice gift. Kosher pallette books are also nice, but everyone seems to have them all. Eichlers has a new line of really nice resin washing cups that are very artsy and make nice gifts. My daughter just got one. they are 50 dollars though.January 14, 2011 3:36 am at 3:36 am #727951ChanieEParticipant
Milchig truffles from Le Chocolat (the store, not the supermarket brand). They are THE BEST (better than Godiva, for those who care) and by bringing milchigs to a Shabbos seudah you are making it clear that the gift is for the hostess and not something you expect her to share. Unless the meal you come for is breakfast 🙂January 14, 2011 3:40 am at 3:40 am #727952ChanieEParticipant
I love serving pieces (bowls, platters, spoons, spreaders, etc.) and I have found great stuff at Home Goods/Marshalls/TJ Maxx. They are all part of one chain – Home Goods has the largest selection of serving pieces but the others usually have interesting items too.
