Summertime Hostess Gifts

The summer time is waning but there are still a few weekends for outdoor bashes or pool parties.  Even though you are attending a casual affair, social etiquette dictates you should still recognize the time and effort of the hostess with the mostess.  After all, depending on the size of the gathering, she has probably spent considerable time and effort: cleaning, setting up, preparing food and cooking.  Not to mention during the party, you will notice the hostess rarely eating, prefering to mingle and ensuring the comfort of her guests.  (Well, I am describing the ideal hostess like my good friend J). 

Remember it’s the thought that counts.  You should always try to consider what the hostess’ tastes are and her needs.  Otherwise, your gift might end up in a future garage sale.  Here are some delightful ideas for hostess gifts she’ll love

Babushkups, like little Russian dolls these nesting cups would make morning OJ even more delicious.

Contemporary take on Betty Draper: I would bake all day in these Anthropologie aprons.
