A Guy’s Guide to Holiday Hosting

3 easy tips any guy can follow for hosting a holiday party

Guys can host a flawless holiday party too!

Not to overgeneralize, but men tend to have a rougher time when playing host. But if you’re a guy looking to bring your entertaining skills to the next level, there are simple steps you can follow to make sure that your soirée is a success.  Check out these three great tips and product suggestions to help make planning your holiday party a super success!

Step 1: Hand your guests a drink.

Rather than cracking open a beer, mix a light and easy whiskey cocktail in less than 30 seconds. Before guests arrive, slice lemons and limes and garnish collins glasses. As they arrive, fill the glasses with ice and add 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey and ginger ale for a refreshing Big Ginger cocktail.

Step 2: Heavy on the hors d'oeuvres.

A traditional favorite for a good reason, the Harry & David Sausage, Cheese, and Crackers Gift Box Deluxe is a party-pleaser no matter the occasion. That's because it has four gourmet cheeses, including flavors like Sicilian Jack cheese, Colby Jack cheese, Garlic Jack cheese, and Pepper Jack cheese. And since it's chock-full of specialty meats, like two hickory-smoked summer sausages and a Thuringer sausage, it's one of the best ways to impress, whether your get-together is casual or fancy.

Quick, easy, and endlessly versatile, the Harry & David Pick 4 Dips are great for dinner parties, snacks, as an addition to your favorite recipes, and pretty much any other occasion you can name. Try them in salads, pasta, or as a savory filling in pastries. Pick from Asiago Cheese, Black Bean, Spinach Avocado, Wasabi Mustard, and more.

Step 3: Bring on dessert.

The entire reason you even show up to these things. Slice up a piece of delectable Harry & David The Cheesecake Factory cheesecake, available in a variety of flavors and delivered to your doorstep by Harry & David. The Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake is simple and delicious, adding a rich chocolate cheesecake to a smooth and fluffy Belgian chocolate mousse. It's topped with puffy swirls of whipped cream and abundant chocolate shavings.
