It’s such a delight when small gifts reflect a personal touch and a bit of forethought. This holiday season, forget about the ubiquitous bottle of wine — show up to parties with something small but special for the host or hostess, like a handmade salt cellar and a pouch of fabulous sea salt, or a tin of homemade chocolate bark with the printed recipe and a vintage wooden spoon.
