If your calendar is looking anything like ours, you’ve got plenty of gatherings to look forward to over the next few months, many of which will be in your loved ones’ homes or gardens (fingers crossed for the weather!). Now more than ever, a gift for the host means so much. Not only is it a mark of gratitude but it also shows your excitement that you’re finally able to meet again after so long apart. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up our favourites that are sure to get them smiling from ear to ear, and make that event you’ve been looking forward to even more special!
For the luxury lovers
Maybe you’ve missed celebrating their birthday or just fancy treating your host to a bit of luxury, but whatever the reason, these stunning scented candles from Neom are sure to light up their eyes. Expertly hand-blended with pure essential oils and 100% natural fragrance, these special single-wick candles can be presented as a lovely trio for your host or gifted separately at three different events.
Each one comes individually packaged in Neom’s beautiful, minimalist aesthetic, and each fragrance will delight practically anyone. It’s a classic, thoughtful present that your host will love to light and unwind with when the party’s over!
For those with green fingers
Ideal for those who love their plants, these charming Beatrix Potter pot buddies are the perfect mixture of fun and whimsy, and they’re just the thing when you don’t want to go overboard with a big present. They balance on the edge of flower pots to give them a touch of character, and their adorable, intricate designs make them delightful for children and adults alike.
If you’re looking for a little token for anyone young at heart, these pot buddies will remind them of the children’s books they used to love.
For the foodies
It can be tricky to know what to take to a dinner party, especially if your friends or family usually think of everything when it comes to drinks, snacks and the main event itself! But you can’t go wrong with bringing condiments for a cheese board or crackers, as you can never have too many. Your host can set them out alongside any they’ve bought themselves to offer guests even more variety, so these Chutney & Preserve sets from Cottage Delight fit the bill perfectly.
Beautifully packaged to present to your host as they are, you get two sets to give at seperate events (or one to keep for your own shindig!), each with award-winning recipes to tantalise everyone’s taste buds. They’re sure to impress even the most discerning of foodies!
For the party animal
We all have that fun-loving friend who adores hosting parties where guests mingle throughout the night with a glass in hand, so if you’re going to a relaxed al fresco do this season, these playful yet elegant Seashore Wine Glass Charms from Culinary Concepts are a must for your host.
For those who love to throw a party, you can never have enough wine glass charms to ensure that guests don’t get their drinks muddled up (and let’s face it, we’re all a bit more conscious about drinking from other people’s glasses now!), so these ones make a really thoughtful present. They boast sophisticated, intricate designs that will stand out in all the right ways, and they come gorgeously gift boxed to show your host just how special they are. Yet another reason to raise a glass!
For the flower fans
You can’t get a more classic gift for a host than a stunning bouquet to display in their home, but why not go that extra mile and gift them the beauty of fresh flowers without the short expiry date?
Yes, this gorgeous bouquet really is comprised of faux flowers, and the quality can only be Peony! It comes wrapped in cellophane for a fresh-from-the-florist look that’s ready to gift, and your recipient can place them into any vase as they would normal flowers, just without the water. Now they can enjoy the beauty of flowers that lasts for years, not days.
There’s never been a better time to mark a gathering as a special occasion, so discover how much joy a little gift can bring when it’s thoughtful and given with love! And, if you love these ideas, why not check out our Home Gifting edit here?
