Before selecting the perfect Labor Day gift, be sure to consider your budget. You can find nice Labor Day gifts at just about any price point, so the sooner you start thinking about what to bring, the better chance you have of finding a great gift that fits into your desired budget.
Consider these creative Labor Day gift ideas:
• A nice bottle of wine
• Bottle of scotch
• Box of chocolates
• Craft beers
• Fruit basket
• Salty snack basket
• Flowers in the colors of red, white, and blue
• Grill charms (to mark whose burger or meat is whose)
• Wine charms (likewise)
• Scented candle (think apple pie or something festive!)
Instead of an actual Labor Day gift, you might also consider bringing something to help take away a bit of the cost burden for the family hosting the party. You can offer to bring pies, cookies, or another dessert item. You might also offer to bring a fruit salad, veggie tray, or meat and cheese platter to help prepare for guests’ arrival. If you are close with the family hosting the party, offer to arrive early to help prepare and set up. Sometimes this simple act goes far beyond the idea of a host or hostess gift.
It isn’t always necessary to bring a present for the host or hostess when you go to a party, but it is definitely a classy gesture that they are sure to appreciate. If your budget can swing it, try to take a nice creative Labor Day gift with you to the party this year.
