9 Hostess Gifts She'll Actually Like
Trust us, she doesn't need another scented candle. If someone's treating you to an entertaining evening or weekend stay, return the favor with a present worth giving
For the stressed-out hostess of a kids' holiday partyThe gift: A healthy frozen meal
After corralling a group of children all hopped up on sugar cookies and candy canes, the last thing this hostess wants to do is cook. So help her out with a ready-to-serve meal. You can make almost anything as long as it's easy to freeze and reheat, but we especially like this Turkey-Spinach Lasagna recipe from "Cooking Light." Lasagna is ideal for freezing and reheating, plus the turkey is a healthier option than beef and the spinach gives you fiber, antioxidants, and vitamin A, which helps promote moisture retention for healthy skin. To make it as a gift, just assemble the lasagna but instead of baking it, freeze it. Then give it to your busy-mom friend with a fresh baguette and baking instructions.
