Simple Gift (And Dinner) for Under $20

Heading to a slew of parties this holiday season? Before you dive in to the egg nog, be sure to thank your lovely hostess - after all, she's saving you from a night of cooking and cleaning!

One way you can show your appreciation is with this easy hostess gift. Simply print off one of our easy recipes, pick up a sassy platter or serving dish at your local discount store (a la TJMaxx - seriously good deals!), arrange your ingredients and dress it up with a bow. Bam! Simple gift (and dinner!) for less than $20. The Five Minute Burrito platter below was $5, ingredients are $7, wrap it in some tulle and tie a bow. Doesn't get much sassier or simpler than that!

Perfect for hostess gifts, your girlfriend who has everything, your children's teacher, your neighbor, even your favorite gourmet (even they need the occasional break during the holidays!) - this gift is perfect for everyone!
