Five Foodie Finds for your Hostess

With the holidays right around the corner I like to have a few go-to hostess gifts in mind for the engagements we have planned and those that pop up at the last second. A hostess gift should be something kind and thoughtful, never over the top and never anything that requires your host to put in extra work. I’ve scoured our downtown streets to find five of my favorite foodie gifts for your holiday hosts!

1)  Box of Pastries for Tomorrow Morning – We all know how exhausting throwing an event is, no matter the size, so give the gift of a lazy morning to your hosts with a box of pastries from The Italian Station located at 620 Caroline Street.

2)  Chilled Growler from Spencer Devon – Ready to Pour at the party or for your guest to savor on their own! The Growlers come in 32 ounce which runs $17.00 filled and $10.00 for a refill or 64 ounce running $28 filled and $17.00 for a refill. The gift that keeps on giving! Spencer Devon is located at 106 George Street.

3)Fresh Macaroons from Agora Coffee Shop – Pick up a package of Andi’s Macaroon of the Day, featuring flavors such as Vanilla Rum, German Chocolate, and Mulled Cider. You can find this awesome neighborhood coffee shop at 520 Caroline Street.

4) Fredericksburg Skyline Series from Twila & Co. – Johnna Hetrick the owner of Twila & Co. has created a gorgeous line fearturing our very own skyline. Lots of items to choose from, and all affordably priced. My personal faves, are the dishtowel set & apron.  Shop at

5) A Fredericksburg Mug by Evelyn Henson – I was so excited to know that Evelyn Henson included Fredericksburg in her popular City Series. Monkee’s exclusively carries the coffee mugs and their cheeriness can brighten up even the dreariest of mornings! Find them at Monkee’s of Fredericksburg at 827 Caroline Street

 Happy Thanksgiving!!
