What to Bring? A Simple Guide to Holiday Party Etiquette

Holiday party season is here. From work gatherings to formal shindigs or casual get-togethers with friends, being a good guest means arriving with a token of appreciation in hand.

But choosing the right gift gets tricky when you’re not up close and personal with the host.

Never fear, Taylor Morrison’s got your back. Here are 7 fabulous ideas for showing gratitude at your next soiree.

An Oldie but Goodie

Unless your host is a teetotaler, you can never go wrong with a nice bottle of wine.

Clueless about what to buy? Ask the wine steward at your local supermarket.

Luxury Candles

A high-quality scented candle is a sumptuous treat for the host to light now…or later.

Holiday Themed Dessert Tray or Bowl

No time to bake? Store-bought cookies on a fancy plate is a show stopper arranged in minutes!

Jolly Old England

Bring a taste of the UK to the party with Christmas Crackers.

Tasty & Unique

Heading to a gathering of foodies? Pique taste buds with Persimmon Salad.

Gourmet Cheese Platter

Ever been to a Christmas party where there’s cheese left on the platter at midnight? Us neither.

Something from the Nursery

Elegant red poinsettias are a safe bet but at Austin homes such as Traditions at Vizcaya don’t be afraid to buck the trend and show up with a Christmas cactus. Texas real estate aficionados love a prickly pear!
