The Talk: Summer Party Must Haves & Hostess Gifts
Summer party expert Chi-Lan Lieu said it’s important to make a good impression. This doesn’t mean going broke buying hostess gifts for every summer party you get invited to. She had a few suggestions, such as 1-800-Flowers and wine accessories that are useful and will really get the message across.
Rabbit Wine Trek Review
Lieu likes the idea of giving a hostess your favorite bottle of wine and a cool accessory. The Rabbit Wine Trek will keep your bottle chilled to perfection and the Zippity Corkscrew is a way to open it in style. Also, Colonial Candle has a signature oval design and to-die-for scents. Speaking of to-die-for scents, a bouquet of flowers is always appreciated and will bring smiles.
The Talk: Michael Aram Hosta Dish
If you want to really give a gift, these Hosta serving bowls from Michael Aram are the perfect thing. They are delicate and come with silver serving utensils. You can bring a salad or dish to share and then leave the bowl for the hostess. All they have to do is wash! Lieu said that Michael Aram is one of the fastest growing companies for gifts and gift registries.
Teavana & Rifle Paper Co Review
For a tea lover, Teavana is the ticket. They sell groovy tea pots, floral and fruity teas, as well as the most aromatic and lovely teas you can imagine. A tea lover might also be a stationary or personalized gift lover. Rifle Paper Co sells cards, journals, iPhone cases and more. They are really girly and special, sure to make an impression. How fun would it be to get a thank you card in the stationary you bought for the hostess with the mostest?
