Five Hostess Gift Ideas

Life can be a little hectic at times. So, when a girlfriend invites you over for an evening full of charcuterie boards, desserts, wine, and care-free conversations full of laughs, you have no other option besides saying yes and throwing out all of your other plans. With your friend giving you an evening of fun and an escape from the hustle and bustle of the daily life, repaying them with a gift is the best way to show your appreciation. Here are five different hostess gift ideas that you can bring to your girls' night!

Nothing can beat a bottle of wine to get the night started off right. If the hostess has a favorite bottle of wine, a simple and effortless gift, that definitely will not go unwanted, is a brand new bottle. Tie a ribbon around the neck of the bottle to create a more decorative and put together look, and pop open the bottle to get the night started. On the other hand, if your hostess prefers something such as coffee or tea, packing up a tin of tea leaves or a bag of coffee in clear plastic gift wrap with a ribbon at the top will serve as a perfect replacement.

Sticking on the side of food, you can never go wrong where baked goods are concerned. The evening is undoubtedly going to be filled with eating and drinking, so adding to the supply of tasty treats will always be appreciated by the hostess. Stop by your local bakery and pick up pastries, sugar cookies, or any of their seasonal treats (plus your hostess’ favorite sweet treat if she has one) for an effortless and much appreciated gift. Have the bakery wrap the box up with a ribbon and you have a hostess gift that everyone at the party can enjoy!

Flowers can be both cheap and simple, but sentimental when you pick up a bouquet of your hostess’ favorite flowers. Make a run by your local farmer’s market or grocery store (Trader Joe’s always has beautiful flowers) and pick up whatever flowers are in season. Wrap them up with a bow and a note -because ribbon can make any gift better- and you now have a beautiful gift that can even add to a decorative centerpiece for your hostess’ party.

Everyone can use more stationary, especially after just hosting a party; whether they want to send out letters thanking everyone for attending or write notes thanking for all of the gifts, no one can have too much stationary as you never know when you’ll need a nice card to send out. Taking a stop at local boutiques or even Target, and you’ll be able to find an arrangement of stationary to gift your hostess.

After a long day of preparing for the party and then completing the tiring task of hosting, a moment of quiet and relaxation is a definite necessity. Bringing your hostess a candle as a gift will never go unappreciated. Also, it's easy for you as well, especially if you a buy a TLC candle that doesn’t even need to be wrapped up or packaged. After spending all day on her feet and then attending to all her guests, being able to light up a new candle and snuggle up under a blanket for a moment of silence will undoubtedly make her night even better.

Setting up an evening for all the girls to come together and simply enjoy being with one another surrounded by food and drinks can be overwhelming. Showing your gratitude for the night out will never go unappreciated by the hostess. It does not have to be elaborate or expensive. A quick stop at your local grocery store can leave you walking out with a simple and inexpensive, yet sentimental, gift for your hostess.

The Best Rose Scented Candle

There is a timeless beauty that never seizes to take one’s breath away when presented with a single classically charming rose flower. With its strong, deeply ember green stem that holds its juxtaposing delicate and silky-smooth blood red petals which quietly curve upon one another, the meaning of a rose is both beauty and ferocity with its vicious thorns that dare to be touched and elegant petals that lust for your attention.
