Host & Hostess > Gift ideas
Home Gifts: Hand care
Give your host a hand with a luxurious hand cream, a soap dispenser with moisturizing soap and a couple of rubber gloves and a note saying "Entertaining guests like us can be a handful - thank you for having us!".
Food: Cheese to please
A pretty wooden cheeseboard with some delicious cheeses and a cheese knife make a wonderful hospitality gift. Add a touch of humor with a little note saying "A cheesy gift for fabulous friends!".
A simple yet meaningful gift idea for a host or hostess is a fresh pineapple. This tropical fruit is the ultimate symbol of hospitality. Mark down your best wishes on little labels ("Health", "Happiness", etc.) and attach them to the fruit. Alternatively, you could opt for pineapple-themed home accessories, like napkins with a pineapple print or a pineapple-shaped cookie jar.
Home Gifts: Italian-style
If your hosts are among the lovers of Italian food, consider a bottle of good-quality Italian wine, a wedge of cheese and a cheese grater. Your message: "We are so grateful to be your friends, thank you for the invitation!".
Gift Basket "Breakfast"
What better way to start a new day than with a great breakfast - especially after a long and stressful evening of entertaining guests! Why not reward your host with a luxurious breakfast basket, to help them "recover" and to say thank you? It also makes a great housewarming present, as the fridge is most likely going to be empty after the first celebration in the new home.
Home Gifts: Candlesticks
Make sure you reflect the hosts' personal style when choosing a pair of beautiful candlesticks. Include an assortment of high-quality candles that match. "Friends like us always stick together!".
Stationery: Personlized notepad
A simple yet personal gift for anyone with a tendency to make notes on the back of grocery receipts and other bits of paper is a personalized notepad. You can tailor the personalization to refer in some way to the gift occasion or go for something standard like "From the desk of [name]". You can get all sorts of shapes and sizes, from self-sticking notepads to address labels.
