We've got a hostess gift that is unique and useful and is sure to wow at your next event!
Homemade Hostess Gift
I love bringing hostess gifts when I attend parties and events. It really makes me feel like I have my life together! But, it can be hard to think of a hostess gift that is actually useful and fun for the hostess to receive (she probably already has candles and tea towels she needs, right?).
I'm happy to report I've found the perfect, homemade hostess gift – a breakfast casserole for the next morning!
Throwing a party can be so hectic and we've all been the hostess that wakes up the next morning to a home that looks like a tornado came through (a fun tornado, of course), and the party clean up begins. But, when you have normal life going on and kids to feed, it can be a challenging day-after. This homemade hostess gifts helps to alleviate some of that stress and takes care of breakfast for the host family.
Supplies for this homemade hostess gift
This gift includes a make-ahead breakfast casserole (it's important that it can be prepared today, refrigerated overnight, and baked in the morning). I used one of my favorite Passionate Penny Pincher recipes – French Toast Bake. It is sweet, so easy to prepare, and is always a hit for kids and adults.
*Note: I substituted cut-up cinnamon rolls for the bread in this recipe (two 8-count cans)!
To complete the gift, you'll need:
- Ingredients for the French Toast Bake
- Disposable 9×13″ pan (you can find these at the Dollar Tree or I love this cute rose gold pan for some extra fun)
- Aluminum Foil
- Fun ribbon
- Notecard or thank you note (I love keeping a set of blank notecards like these on hand for purposes like this)
How to make this gift unique:
Prepare your French Toast Bake in the disposable pan per the recipe. Cover with aluminum foil.
You can make your gift your own by using different fun ribbons, bows, and notes. If you're attending a Christmas party, this would be so cute with a decorative Christmas tree ornament attached to the ribbon. You could also include a picture of you and the hostess tied to the bow.
Top the gift off with a notecard expressing your thanks for the hostess and the instructions for baking in the morning. I know she will love it!
*P.S. You can check with the hostess or a friend/relative ahead of time for food allergies.
