Or you should show off your true creativity with a hostess gift that will get more than a polite smile. Show your hosts you really care by appearing on the doorstep with their favourite Ben & Jerry’s treat. Consider these suggestions:
For your best friend, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough®
For your dead-head university pals, Half Baked®
For your sweetie, Chunky Monkey® (hmmm… maybe not?)
For the music lover, Cherry Garcia or If I Had 1,000,000 Flavours®
(If you’re coming to my place during the holidays, please bring Banana Split, New York Super Fudge Chunk and If I Had 1,000,000 Flavours. I might even share.)
If you don’t live in Winnipeg, Yellowknife or Regina and you’re worried it might be a little too warm to transport your gift, here are a few suggestions.
• Add a bag of ice to a reusable shopping bag and tuck your pint inside. After all, every party needs extra ice!
• Give the gift of thermal! Pack a thermal bag with some ice and a pint or two.
Now that’s I’ve been staring at this image on my screen for the last 10 minutes, I must run out and get some Ben & Jerry’s!
$5.50 to $7 at all major grocery, department and drug stores.
