Hostess Gifts

This summer calendars are filling up with BBQs, weddings, garden parties, 4th of July celebrations, and other festivities. It makes a good impression when you present your host/hostess with something to remember you by. If you’re looking to bring something other than the typical bottle of wine or box of chocolates, think outside the box with these ideas – all suggestions under $40.

Zoku Quick Pop Maker – Once the unit is set up, create tasty popsicles in less than 10 minutes. Great for the host’s children, or the child in them!

Herb Markers – Give this set of 9 herb markers for the hostess with a home herb garden. Next time she’s picking her herbs for a quick meal, she’ll thank you when she doesn’t get them mixed up.

Elemental Apron – Anthropologie has the cutest selection of aprons that will make you feel like you’re back in the 50s cooking in your kitchen. Brighten up your hostess’s kitchen with this beautiful yellow confection. Yellow makes me happy, but there’s a wide variety of other colors/patterns to choose from.
Chevron Monogrammed Stationery – This personalized stationery set from Oh Louise Designs on Etsy provides the hostess 12 cards/envelopes, one of which will hopefully be written to you thanking you for your thoughtful gift. The cards are customized with the monogram of your choice and come with white envelopes.
Caramel and Sea Salt Truffles – Gilt.com is a great site to find yummy baked goods. This particular set of 20 truffles comes from Knipschildt Choolatier with 5 different types of sea salt. Salt, caramel, chocolate – need I say more?

Orka Chocolate Fondue Set – For the hostess who loves hosting, this chocolate fondue set for 4 will sweeten any intimate gathering.
