Sizzling Summer Hostess Gifts!

With summer in full swing it is time to get your hostess giving on! I’ve written about this before but I think it bears repeating, the tiniest gesture of thoughtfulness goes along way. It is always great to receive a gift ( who are we kidding, we LOVE to get gifts) but I love the feeling of giving a gift and seeing the delight of the recipient as they open it. In thinking back on some of my favorite hostess gifts I have received, I remember a friend of mine bringing me about 8 packs of different cocktail napkins – some pretty patterns, some funny quotes all tied together with a big ribbon.  Truth be told these might have been a re-gift 🙂  but I actually loved having a stock of them on hand and ready to go – I don’t know about you but there have been many times when my party is about to start and I have forgotten to get cocktail napkins and I own a paper store :). The point is it was a really great and useful gift and I have given this myself several times.

Here at The Dotted i we are always looking for the best hostess gifts, something that will make you stand out from the crowd. Here are some of our favorites!!

These Ben Garden Napkins are always a hit!

I don’t know about you but I love getting a new set of summer salad servers

Anchors Away, a super nice hostess gift are these set of dinner napkins

A fun beach bag says thank you and happy summer!

These beautiful candles from Paddy Wax are great, once the candles are gone you have a beautiful bowl, its what we call a “twofer”

Happy Summer everyone, enjoy the weather and the parties!!

All these gifts and more are available at the store and online.

XOXO, Shannon
