Hostess with the Mostest
You’ve been invited over for a nice home-cooked meal by a friend. So to show your appreciation of their hospitality, you would like to bring a gift. But what should you bring? While there are plenty of gift options to choose from, the hard part is coming up with something that the host doesn’t already have and something they will use. After all, we want it to be meaningful (even if it may be slightly last minute!). We’ve come up with a variety of one-of-a-kind gifts that your host will love and be able to use time and time again!
Everyone is always in need of a new chopping board, and this one comes hand-painted in a variety of different designs. Inspired by nature and the raw ruggedness of life, these designs are creative, colourful and a perfect piece to add to any kitchen. Both practical and pretty, these one-of-a-kind boards are a great way to gift your host!
Who doesn’t love wine!? Well this engraved wine bottle will make your gift of wine so much more meaningful. Just choose your wine, send the image in and Design Your Own Wine does the rest! This is definitely an elevated vino gift – perfect for your friends who are wine aficionados.
Atop this marble board sits brass X’s and O’s for this take on the classic Tic-Tac-Toe game. Perfect for any home coffee table, this unique piece (definitely worth the splurge!) is sure to be a conversation starter that your host will not only love, but also be able to entertain their guests with!
If you were already planning on gifting your host with some wine, then these wine bags are the perfect way to add a little somethin’-somethin’ to your host’s favourite bottle of wine! And the best part is they can save the bag for future wine carrying purposes!
For the friend that loves cooking, give them the gift of these adorable spice bags with freshly ground spices, including one house-made blend. You can gift them with 5, 8, 12, 20 or even 50 jars (if you’re really feeling generous!). This gift will really spice up their pantry and if you’re lucky enough to be invited back, they’ll probably be cooking with them the next time you’re graced with their cooking! #winwin
This is certainly no ordinary gift – this personalised bottle opener is a great way to gift the host who also loves cracking open ice-cold beers. Wrapped in brown leather with a tag that you can engrave a message on to, this is definitely a unique gift. It’s useful, thoughtful and a nice way to show your host that you appreciated the invite to their home.
Bring some extra sweetness in to the host’s day with this beautiful box of chocolates from Choco Choco Fine Chocolate. Each chocolate within the box has a different colourful design on top. They also taste just as good as they look!
Showing up with a bouquet of flowers is nice, but showing up with a light blue dim sum basket filled with daisies is better! BloomBox HK is a florist that specialises in filling different coloured dim sum baskets with gorgeous flower arrangements. This is one sure fire way to put a smile on the host’s face, not to mention an invite back!
Wine markers, a handcrafted chocolate bar AND a vintage inspired corkscrew, what more could you (or your host ask for)?! To us, this sounds like the perfect way to show your appreciation to your host. One part makes it easier for your host to throw even more parties, the other helps them save all their wine and the third is a way for them to treat themselves after the work they put into the party! Perfect.
Fun for the host and their guests, this cocktail recipe books is the perfect gift for those who love to host parties. We all know that hosting a party means there will be cocktails, #pinkiesup! This book is a great way for hosts to perfect their signature drink and experiment with a few new ones too!
