5 Great Summer Hostess Gift Ideas

Not sure what you get your gracious hostess as a thank you gift? Here are five ideas.

It seems like during both the summer and holiday seasons we’re bombarded with invites to this and that. If you’re like me, the first thing that pops into your mind upon receiving notice is 1) what am I going to wear and 2) what am I going to bring?

When in doubt bring a gift that is both personalized and one-of-a-kind. You won’t have to worry about your recipients having one of the same or not liking it. Below you’ll find five ideas that are guaranteed to be a hit and make you the most liked guest of the night.

1. Custom Coasters


Coasters probably get used the most during parties and the like. So there is no better hostess gift!

2. Coffee Table Books

Coffee table books are simply stunning and they are a great decor piece. Get your hostess a book on a topic she loves. 

3. Custom Cutting Boards

 Ever go to reach for your cutting board only to find it’s still dirty? I have, that’s why having a couple on hand is great. Another gift that is functional and can be personalized. 

4. Hand Towels

Who doesn’t love a pretty hand towel? Every time your hostess goes to use it, she’ll think of you. 

5. Your Favorite Old School Game

 If you fear running out of good conversation at the party, bring a classic board game to spark up nostalgia!
