There is something to be said about old fashioned hospitality, the kind of days gone by where ladies in dresses visited for tea and always had a Gift for the hostess. This is no longer an expected form of politeness, in fact, if you arrive at a friend’s home and present her with a hostess gift, she may well be taken aback. It is no longer a well-established custom in our fast paced culture. However, as with many of the older ways of doing things, it is worth bringing back. The next time you are invited to the home of a friend, be it for a barbecue or a family game night, try one of these Awesome Hostess Gifts that are sure to make you a favorite guest.
6 Awesome Hostess Gifts
Monogrammed cutting board
Nothing says I thought of you like a monogrammed gift. You know that the giver didn’t re-gift it and they actually gave some significant thought into what they did for you. The nice part is that you can often find monogrammed boards and other monogrammed gifts at places like Hobby Lobby.
Think Godiva, Harry & David or some other delectable, with chocolates you really can’t go wrong. It would be a rare gal who would not delight in a fancy box of high-end deliciousness. If you are feeling extra creative, how about chocolate covered blueberries or coffee beans?
A classy and beautiful blank journal
Not every girl is a writer, but many of us are list keepers. Just having an unscathed and clean slate to use for whatever you desire is a luxury. There are so many beautiful versions of blank journals you can get as fancy or plain as you like.
Something tasty and foreign is always a good choice. Imported coffee or flavored coffee is like a piece of paradise in a vacuum sealed package. Bonus points here if you can come up with something she has never tried before, and if she is not a java princess, go for some unique tea samplers.
If not monogrammed then pretty blank cards, a handwritten note is almost as wonderful as an old-fashioned hostess gift. Provide her the carrying device for a beautiful note to a friend or loved one.
A beautiful apron
Find her a statement piece, one that is functional yet showcases her personality. We all like to look beautiful, even if we are trying to protect our clothing underneath while whipping up a fabulous meal for guests. If you need inspiration check out some Etsy finds in the apron department.
Whichever the gift, a sweet note of thanks for her hostessing talents presented with a thoughtful gift can go a long way in letting her know just how appreciative you are and how special she is.
