For the Hostess
Lately, I’ve been thinking about the time when it will be safe for us to gather again. To commune and fellowship like we did before. My mind is already conjuring up elaborate, whimsical tablescapes. Maybe an outdoor dinner party where we roast marshmallows for homemade s’mores as a sweet post-dinner treat. All those thoughts about hosting friends and loved ones led me to ideas for hostess gifts. Here is what I came up with.
1. Lots of Bubbly
When I think about joyful celebrations, a bubbly beverage is a must. The market is saturated with lots of options, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Tost make the ideal non-alcoholic gift. They recently launched a rose option which is both aesthetically pleasing and delightfully bubbly. Affix a bow with a handwritten hang tag and you have a beautiful gift anyone would love to receive.
If you are looking for some bubbly with alcohol, Moët & Chandon provides the option to personalize their Specially Yours gift box (available for Imperial and Rose Imperial). It is a complete gift, so no need to get a gift box/bag or ribbon.
Help your hostess spruce up his/her bar with a cocktail mixer. This is perfect to bring out your hostess’ inner mixologists. While cocktails are typically made using alcohol, mixers work for making mocktails as well. There are so many quality products on the market, but a couple of our favorites are Teaspressa and Splash Mixers.
Scent has been described as the most powerful sense linked to memory. A candle is always a thoughtful and simple expression of gratitude, making it an ideal hostess gift. We are a bit partial to Brooklyn Candle Studio these days. However, there are so many amazing options available.
4. Washes & Lotions
2020 rang the bell about proper hand hygiene loudly. A byproduct of incessant hand washing is dry hands. La Chatelaine offers a duo that takes care of the washing and moisturizing in the most darling form. Their hand washes and matching lotions make a great hostess gift. An added bonus is that the bottles are reusable.
5. Something Personalized
Who doesn’t love a personalized gift? For the hostess who is the master of all things culinary, a personalized apron makes a thoughtful gift. We are partial to Hedley & Bennett. The craftsmanship and quality is outstanding making it an apron that will go the distance through all of your culinary adventures.
