Be a dream guest by bringing a thoughtful gift to your host of a dinner party, social gathering, or weekend stay. A hostess gift is the perfect way to express how much you appreciate your friend or family member’s hospitality. It is always polite to bring a gift if you are spending the night.
Short on ideas? Don’t worry! Pink Olive has some of the best gift ideas. In addition to this awesome heirloom recipe box that was recently featured on DailyCandy, here are some fun ideas for your next dinner party invitation! Consider baking a sweet treat using a recipe from Babycakes and presenting it on a handmade cake stand by Knack studios. Leave the cake stand as a gift to the host.
Cookbooks make the ultimate gift because they are functional and fun. Our diverse collection of cookbooks is always growing. A few of our recent favorites include “pestos, tepenades, and spreads”, "whoopie pies" , and “easy green organic cookbook”. Choose between savory and sweet, there is surely something to please every taste.
A cheese knife set by Rae Dunn makes a nice edition to any entertainer’s kitchen. Serve fromage in French style with these whimsical knives that says: oui, encore, merci, voila. Artist Rae Dunn’s inspiration comes from finding beauty in simple shapes and found objects. Her approach to designing ceramics is based on finding beauty of things imperfect and incomplete. Pair it with a few of your favorite gourmet cheeses to present to your host. Browse our entire collection of Rae Dunn ceramics including plates, word mugs, and vases.
If it is a small social gathering you are attending, sending a hand written thank you note is always appreciated. Pink Olive has many unique and beautiful letter pressed thank you cards including “merci boxed set”.
A luxury gift meant to pamper your host will get noticed. Consider giving a pot of crème eclat by Om Aroma. Crème eclat is a luscious, freshly whipped body cream that melts instantly into your skin, delivering nourishing vitamins from prized organic and natural ingredients. A bar of handmade soap is another guaranteed favorite. Saipua soap is carefully crafted in Brooklyn in small batches using food-grade vegetable oils, butters, herbs and extracts. Each bar is hand cut, air dried, cured, smells delicious and is individually wrapped in beautiful paper.
Pink Olive has a great selection of artwork, candles, luxury bath products, stationary, jewelry, and other unique finds. Let us help you pick the perfect hostess gift and take advantage of our NEW concierge service. By showing your gratitude, your host will be delighted and you’ll be known as the best guest and gift-giver!
