I co-hosted a “sprinkle” last week for a dear friend who is expecting baby number three. Since she’s been around the block with the baby shower thing, we decided to break tradition and do something a little different. We honored her with an evening of beauty. Think hair styling, makeup application and brow shaping at a local San Francisco salon. Everyone had a wonderful kid-free time, catching up, giggling, eating/drinking and getting beautified. At the end of the evening, the guest of honor presented me with a darling hostess gift—this all occasion Jonathan Adler Card Set. I loved it so much that it got me thinking about great hostess gifts. It’s always a good idea to have some stocked and ready to go. I mean, if some brave soul is up for hosting my loud family of five, you bet I’m bringing something cute as a little thank you!
I’ve been on the hunt for a cute iPad case that will make me happy each time I pull out my tablet. Kate Spade always adds a little sunshine to life, and this rugby stripe iPad case fits the bill. I wish it came in yellow or pink, but black and white is classic.
I love anything monogrammed. These monogrammed plastic cups would add a little glamour to a backyard BBQ. Add the napkins, and you are really getting fancy!
A little bauble always gets a girl’s heart to skip a beat. These initial enamel bracelets from C Wonder are preppy chic and would look great layered with other pieces. What color would I pick?
Just a few gifts I’d love to give or receive! What hostess gifts are you in love with?
