Gift Guide for the Hostess

At this time of the year, the focus is on get togethers, entertaining and parties and there’s no such thing as arriving empty handed! So show your appreciation for your hostess with a thoughtful gift. I love giving homemade gifts and beautiful flowers. I’ve rounded up a few pretty goodies to give you some ideas…

GIFT IDEAS: Poetry candles, Poetry Diffuser, Touchee Feelee dish cloths, Wonki Ware ceramic bowls, Sweet treats from Woolworths

Fresh flowers are always a lovely touch. If you have the time, get creative and try something a little different…

– prepare a pretty bouquet and present it in a wooden box which can be re-used
– buy a simple herb pot plant and wrap it beautifully with hessian, twine & a gift tag
– pick a small bunch of fresh herbs from your garden, wrap and add a pretty gift tag
– a single stem or flower presented in a beautiful vase. The vase is the actual gift here

I’ve created a ‘gift box’ that I keep filled with small potential gifts, so that if I’m ever stuck for time, I can grab something from my gift box and make sure I don’t arrive empty handed! Do you have any favourite go-to gifts?

    I have such a thing for hostess gifts. I love scouting for them, choosing them, wrapping them and watching the hostess open it. somehow I get far more pleasure in the giving of these simple gifts than I do from the giving of birthday gifts. Some really cool ideas going on here. ( last week I gave my bestie a bottle of our favourite pink sparkling wine – and shared it with her! heheheh!!

      I like your thinking Rose! A gift that can be shared, is always a good one 🙂
