While it’s not a set rule that you need to come bearing gifts, offering the hostess a little something is a nice gesture to say thank you and show your appreciation. It’s also a great way to make someone smile! Here I share a few of my favourite hostess gifts to give (and to receive) during the holidays.
Dyptique candles are one of those splurge gifts that people won’t necessarily treat themselves to. These have the most amazing scents to brighten the room. And with so many ways to use the jars afterwards, what’s not to love?
After a day of planning, cooking and running around, what hostess wouldn’t want to slip her feet into a cozy pair of slippers like these? I especially love the pink pom pom on these Kate Spade Camdon Pom Pom slippers.
Another gift that most of us won’t bother to splurge on for ourselves. Aesop products are formulated with plant-based ingredients and the highest quality laboratory-made ingredients to create products with a high efficacy and the greatest antioxidant properties. And they smell amazing. I’m particularly smitten with the hand cream that has a soothing scent of lavender.
Raise a glass to this colourful set of coasters by Jonathan Adler. The pop of colour is perfect for any time of year. And let’s face it, you can’t go wrong with a gift from Jonathan Adler.
Chocolates are always a good idea. In Montreal, we have chocolate shops by Geneviève Grandbois and they are delicious! She offers a sweet selection of miniature chocolates as well as other decadent treats perfect for a hostess gift.
What better way to look forward to the new year than with a chic calendar. Leave it to the always stylish Garance Doré to create this beautifully sketched calendar that will have your hostess thinking of you all year.
The perfect accessory for ringing in the New Year. The Coach Lock and Key bangle set (available in three colours) adds just the right amount of sparkle with its Swarovski encrusted lock.
Fashionable and functional, these glass wine stoppers by Kate Spade are sure to be a hit. I love how the playful shapes add just the right touch of colour to any table.
