"Hostess gifts" are no longer what you give when you're invited for dinner or the weekend—it's what the hostess gives you to say thanks for coming.
"When friends come to stay with me, I offer my home as a gift, a warm embrace," says Oprah. "I know that whatever I've had has always been better if I share it, whether it's roller skates or a Hershey's bar. And for my friends—my claimed family—hospitality is an extension of myself, an extension of grace and kindness."
So what would you find in your gift basket if you stayed at Oprah's house? Your goodies might include:
