There is a deep cultural chasm in this country, and it involves the highly divisive and hotly debated issue of hostess gifts. Some say consumables are the only option; anything else brings needless stuff into our lives. Others like a nice tangible token of thanks, and see it as a gracious gesture. There's no right answer, of course. I prefer the edible or drinkable variety myself, but I also appreciate giving my host something small that they wouldn't necessarily buy themselves, but nonetheless really appreciate. Here are a few small and special gifts I'd be happy to give (and even receive): 1. Himmeli Mobile from AM Radio; $18 2. Turkish Hand Towel from Cotton Cocoon; $18 3. Succulent Sculpture from Waterstone Succulents; $20 4. Tanagram Magnets from Nice Nice Nice; $20 5. Sagaform Serving Set from A+R; $11 6. Bottle of Wine (here, Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc) at Target; $10-15 7. Fox Keychain from Claire Hartigan; $6.50 8.
