Salad Days Gift Box
Summers are for salads. Supersize theirs with fab finds like Fig Balsamic Vinegar, Maple Sherry Bourbon Vinegar, Meyer Lemon Salt, a Wooden Spoon trio and so much more!
White On Bright Personalized Notepads
Mario Luca Giusti Outdoor Drinkware
No more broken glasses! I have seen these in person. Unless you pick them up, you have no idea that they aren't crystal. A pretty and practical gift for pool parties and alfresco dinner hosts.
Metallic Pineapple Tumbler
Give your host an insta-vacation with a pair of these. In copper or silver, these tumblers make a happy home for any cocktail. By the way, the pineapple is the symbol of hospitality.
Kiss Cocktail Napkins
Your host will kiss and tell everyone where they got these. I am a bit obsessed with them.
Ghost Ship Kite XL Model
Haptic Labs' cool kite is really a functional work of art. "Each kite is handcrafted by a certified Fair Trade group in collaboration with Balinese artisans." The perfect gift for a sailor or a family with active kids. They will think that their ship came in!
A + R Store
The Greatest Guest
If you want that title, bring this. Each item is unique and delicious. Think Pineapple Lime Cocktail Mixer, Smoked Cola Gumdrops, Mission Almond Butter, White Truffle Popcorn and so much more. It's all served up in a good looking tote, so no gift wrapping required.
Alchemy Collection Votive Holder
Votive holders can be a dime a dozen, but these are unique. Love that they are metal which makes them patio perfect. By the way, they are no quite a dime but are super affordable.
Kate Spade New York Wine TagsThese are great to have around the house. They will turn any bottle of bubbly into the toast of the town!
Send your weekend offering before you arrive. These tamales are terrific! You can only find them at
Giant Yard Dice
You'll be the life of the party and the good times will roll with this artisan made game.
Wine Lovers Herb Garden Kit
A creative kit for wine lovers (i.e. almost everyone). It comes with a booklet of wine pairings for herb seasoned dishes. I bet they don't have one of these!
Enamel Candle Tumblers
Candles have become a bit expected, but the truth is everyone loves them. These fragrances are so unique and perfect for Summer. Think Grapefruit Oleander, Pineapple Cilantro, Blackberry Absinthe and other perfect pairings. The unbreakable containers travel indoors or out and can be repurposed after the 70 hour burn time. Love these.
Brunch Market Bag
Going for the weekend? Pack up this bag with wine, flowers, and goodies from the Farmers Market. Present it all upon arrival. Your host will love the way it looks chic and effortless on display at home.
Lulu & Georgia
Beaches By Gray Malin
This is your "shore" thing gift if visiting a friend's beach or lake house. The photographer points his lens at coastal landscapes from Chicago to Capetown.
