Summer's the time for weekend getaways, visiting out-of-town family and friends and taking trips to the cottage. Here’s a round up of fun gifts to give to the host with the most. Hand-Pressed Milk Glass Pitcher for big batches of refreshing lemonade or sangria. A Salt Pinch Bowl made from olive wood is a small luxury for the kitchen your host wouldn’t necessarily buy for themselves. Gift it with a gourmet sea salt. Good-quality scented candle – aptly named Happiness – to fill their home with an uplifting fresh scent. Your favourite new cookbook to provide culinary inspiration. Even better if you wrap it up in a pretty tea towel. Baguette Tray made from solid walnut for evening snacks. A striped Fouta Beach Towel is perfect for the summertime host with a pool or lakefront property. Fill a Le Parfait with your favourite pancake mix or homemade granola (so your hosts needn’t worry about breakfast the next day). Pot up this adorable Ceramic Animal Planter with a culinary herb, such as thyme or oregano. It'll make them smile every time they look at it. Tonic syrup for the best G&Ts ever. Pretty Geo Soaprocks for beautifying her bathroom. What are your favourite hostess gifts to give? Or, if you're a host, what have you appreciated receiving?
