Chic dinner party gifts that will ensure you're invited back again.
A good dinner party guest will never turn up empty handed, but a great guest will turn up with something that will get the conversation started, so aim for something a bit more imaginative than the usual bottle of red or white and bring a dinner party gift that shows your appreciation to the host.
Food and Drink Dinner Party Gifts
It may not be the most original idea, but sometimes it's ok to play it safe, and an edible, or indeed drinkable, dinner party gift will always be appreciated- just make sure you think gourmet rather than garage forecourt! Walk away from box of Milk Tray/ bottle of Jacob's Creek and think fine wines, artisan cheeses and handmade chocolates.
Dinner Party Gifts For the House Proud
They've probably spent the last week on a pre-dinner party spring clean, so why not reward their efforts with a dinner party gift for their home? It will make a nice change from a food or drink gift that is essentially forgettable. Opt for a classic gift like a vase or photoframe, or if you are sure you know their taste well, a print or poster makes a memorable dinner party gift.
Dinner Party Gifts For the Chef
Whether they're the next Jamie Oliver or you wish to subtly imply a need for a culinary recap, a recipe book is a sweet dinner party gift to bring along for your host. Or hunt out the latest culinary gadget to impress your hardworking cook.
Dinner Party Fun and Games
Some of the best dinner parties we've been to have ended with an epic game of Scrabble. Be the person that brings the fun with a classic board game or deck of cards.
