After hosting a handful of dinner parties, I noticed how creative some of my friends are when it comes to host gifts! I thought I'd put together this gift guide for those of you looking for a little love for your evening host.
Wine for the Occasion - These are perfect for any occasion. Take a merci for your host or a mazel tov for a special event. Take your pick, friends! So much to choose and drink from.
SmartStick - Not a day goes by that I don't use my Cuisinart SmartStick [pink!]. I use it for smoothies, grind soup directly in the pot, mince garlic and herbs. You name it. Well worth the price!
Leif Serve-ware - If the host loves color and cooking, you can't go wrong with these colorful pieces from Leif. They even have glitter, but supplies run out quick... so go get em!
White Wine Carafe - I just love a hot summer day with a cool cheese platter and an ice cold glass of pinot grigio. Keep your wine bottle in hands reach and cold with this carafe!
Herb Keeper - Trust me, as an herb-loving, entertaining hostess I would love this. Prevent herbs from drying out within days with these that will have them last many, many more days.
Coffee Scoop & Sealer - There is so much efficiency and beauty in European design. Present this scoop-and-seal with a bag of fair trade coffee.
Instagram Coasters - What a great way of personalizing presents. Scroll through your host's instagram and pick a few of their sweetest moments!
Flavored Oils - A great way of adding an extra element of flavor is with flavored oils. This is just a unique spin off of a sweet bottle of wine.
[Your State Here] Cutting Board - This is my favorite in the bunch. To personalize your present give your host a cutting board of their beloved home state!
