Summer is here! If you are visiting friends or family, don’t forget a hostess gift. It’s a wonderful way to thank your hosts for their hospitality. It doesn’t have to be elaborate or expensive.
There are so many useful and creative gifts. If you pick the gift with your hosts in mind, the gift is sure to be a success.
According to Ann Post of Emily Post.com, “Gift possibilities include wine, Champagne, flowers (preferably in a vase), a potted plant, chocolates, specialty food items such as jams and jellies or other condiments, fancy nuts, olives, olive oil or vinegars, or items for the house, such as cocktail napkins, guest soaps and lotions, a picture frame, or a scented candle. A CD or book is also appropriate if you know your host’s taste.”
How about a tray or candle? I love these colors.
Salad Servers or a rattan tray will make any hostess smile.
Pillows like these are the perfect gift for a beach house hostess.
Share a picture taken with your host during your stay.
If you bring a bottle of wine why not add a coaster or napkin holder? That way the hostess can enjoy your gift long after the last drop of wine.
Coasters, placemats and soaps are always welcome gifts (and useful).
You can present the gift at anytime during your stay. If you prefer you can send something when you get home.
