If you’re heading to a friends summer/shore house this weekend and can’t think of what to bring, check out my
top 10 hostess gift ideas
Goverre Wine Glasses …
Perfect for a late day glass of wine at the beach.
Rope knot door stop …
Love this anywhere in the house, a door stop or book end it just looks great.
Tote bag …
Check out the current issue of Peachy The Magazine Nurturing an Abundant Life, it features a great selection of tote bags.
Infused Oil …
Oil Stores are popping up all over with good reason, they’re delicious. Choose a flavored oil and vinegar then package with some vine ripened tomatoes and a sprig of basil and fresh mozzarella cheese.
Beach Towel …
These are no ordinary towels, they make a picnic at the beach an occasion.
Craft Beer and Local Wine …
Choosing a Craft Beer or Local Wine is always appreciated.
Package it in a Lands End Canvas bag paired with your favorite cheese or a snack like chips + salsa.
Flowers this time of year are such a welcomed gift especially if they’re from your garden. I like to have extra Ikea glass vases on hand (from $1.79 and up) and some raffia to tie around the top, quick, easy + looks great.
Home Baked Goods …
If you bake that’s perfect, if not no worries there are plenty of bakeries along the way to pick up a delicious dessert and fresh seasonal fruit.
My favorite … seasonal berries, fresh ricotta cheese (season with agave, vanilla extract and add dark chocolate mini chips) and some sort of cake like a pound cake.
Outdoor/Indoor candles from tea lights to lanterns are plentiful this time of year + there’s always room for more!
Spa Basket …
Indulge your hostess with a basket of spa/bath items to relax after the weekend!
Enjoy your weekend at the shore!
be happy + be comfortable in your home
