The barbeque is fired up, rosé is flowing, and you have been invited to more summer gatherings than you can count. Of course, being the amazing guest you are, you know arriving with a little gift for the host is a must.There’s always the standard bottle of wine or potted orchid, but with so many other fun, creative options out there, why not try gifting something new? Scroll down for some of the cutest summer gifts every host and hostess will love (and maybe pick up a little something for yourself!)
Guest soap: Pretty soaps like these from Claus Porto make the perfect hostess gift. It’s amazing how items even as simple as soap can be really elegant and sentimental gift.
Coaster set: These make a great gift because, well, who wouldn’t want another set of coasters? Coaster sets are one of those things that nobody ever really thinks about, but always needs. You really can’t go wrong with this one.
Coffee table book: A great coffee table book (especially one that relates to a hobby or interest of your host) is a nice decoration to any home and will show how much you care.
