Good morning! Summer is in full swing now and that means parties, weekends at friends, vacations and more. When I stay with friends I always bring a homemade gift, somethings like sugar cookies, salted alfajores bars, brownies or raspberry lemon cheesecake bars. And of course I bring a bottle of champagne to toast to our friendship and to our time together. But I also like to bring something for them to have to remember our time together.
|Salted Alfajores Bars|
Here are a few of my ideas for hostess gifts.
|Copper Ice Bucket|
A beautiful copper ice bucket with a bottle of wine would be a great and something that they could use long after you have gone home.
A set of margarita glasses with all of the fixings for your favorite margarita recipe.

A slate cheese board with a selection of your favorite cheeses.
A set or two of cocktail napkins.
A great tray or a serving platter laden with your homemade treats is also a fabulous idea.
|Farm From Home|
I personally love to give and receive books and these two are my new favorites, Farm From Home by Amanda Brooks, you can follow her adventures on Instagram and if you make it to the Cotswold’s you could visit her shop as well.
|A Slice of England|
And India Hicks A Slice of England! India Hicks is a fascinating lady, she was a flower girl at Princess Diana’s wedding, her parents are Lady Pamela Mountbatten and David Nightingale Hicks, the interior designer, she was a model, a photographer and is now an entrepreneur.
I think you can never go wrong with a candle, and anything made by Lollia is a favorite of mine, especially this one called “another quiet day.”
|Tory Burch Neckerchief|
If you are spending a weekend with a girlfriend a scarf is a fun idea as is something like a favorite beauty product.
Happy Summer! Enjoy your time with family and friends!
