Gifts that make you go Ooo

Heading to a party & have absolutely no clue what to bring the host & hostess? Really want to show your appreciation because they have the mostess? Never fear, Itty Bitty Party Committee is here! …with gift tips!

Wine & gift cards are an easy & lovely way of saying thank you, but don’t you want to stand out from the crowd a little? You don’t have to go crazy & buy the most expensive set of crystal glassware, you can find a lot of fun gifts that fit your budget. Here are a few ideas that we suggest for close friends or people you’re meeting for the first time.

I simply can’t get enough of unique & funky kitchen appliances! They’re great for several reasons: they instantly make your kitchen more adorable, they encourage you to think of recipes that require using them, you can assemble a group of little trinkets to make a gift basket & if you don’t cook…they fool everyone into thinking you do!

How about a unique wooden platter or serving tray? West Elm has some gorgeous rustic ones. Cutting the cheese at this party won’t be rude, it’s encouraged!

If you’re meeting the hostess who has just about everything, it could be a good strategy to bring a live potted plant. Live flowers in a modern pot will spruce up the house & bring a smile to just about anyone’s face. Try Ranunculus, Paperwhites, or purple Irises. Maybe even a living basil plant! You can find these at most grocery stores or your local garden nursery. Herbs look pretty, taste delicious & make the kitchen smell nice. Homemade pesto? Yes, please!

Bringing a gift doesn’t have to be daunting, just have fun with it! The important part is to show your gratitude. Happy gifting!
