Dinner parties are a great way to bring friends and family together, while showing off your culinary skills (or your favorite caterer). Typically, guests bring gifts as a small token of appreciation to their host or hostess. We love the idea of turning the tables, however, where the party planner gives a little extra something to their guests at the end of the night.

Think about what kind of host or hostess you are: Is it all about the food, or do you throw in games in as well? Are you gourmet all the way, or do you love potluck meals? No matter what your party planning style, there's a perfect end-of-the-meal gift. Here are five suggestions for quirky and smart gifts to send your diners home with something other than just a full stomach.
