I’ve been that means to write down this publish for the reason that holidays LAST YEAR however you understand how issues go. After writing out What to Reward New Mamas, I assumed it might be useful to additionally curate a few of my favourite hostess items to have available. We’re all busy and I discover it good to refill on just a few issues in order that I at all times have one thing to deliver the host, with out stressing about it last-minute. I hope you discover these concepts useful and would love in the event you may depart something you prefer to reward within the feedback.
CANDLE + ACCESSORY: If you recognize me, you recognize I like candles. I do know scent could be a private factor so I often refill on extra crowd-pleasing scents that everybody appears to like just like the diptyque Baies. I additionally often seize candle units after I see them on sale from manufacturers I get pleasure from (like this one). To make the reward additional good, you’ll be able to deliver a pleasant matchbox or a cloche.
HAND SOAP + LOTION: Nobody will complain about receiving a lux hand cleaning soap and lotion combo. These are simple to retailer for last-minute items, too!

A few of my faves to reward: Laneige Lip Sleeping Masks, Lux + Unfiltered Exfoliating Physique Polish or Hand Cream, Watermelon Hyaluronic Masks and these Hyaluronic Beneath Eye Masks that are at all times successful.
MARGARITA MIX + GLASSES: This has been a go-to for me ever since Austin began making a Spicy Cucumber Margarita with this combine – it’s SO good. Pairing it with my favourite ribbed glasses, which double as ingesting glasses because it’s truly a carafe set and reward by itself, is a pleasant combo. On the whole, I feel bringing a drink that may be made that night time (and the substances) is a enjoyable contact as effectively.
MORE HOSTESS IDEAS
HOME DECOR: If I do know somebody effectively, I would deliver them a pleasant tray or some hand towels with a pleasant bottle of hand cleaning soap (or this superb budget-friendly cleaning soap that smells costly). Or possibly a cookbook if I’ve discovered one just lately and know they prefer to cook dinner.
FLOWERS OR POTTED PLANT: I like contemporary flowers however I additionally like the concept of reward a plant as a result of they have a tendency to last more.
FOOD: I’ve had girlfriends deliver one thing like contemporary bread and cheese or a pleasant chocolate bar which is at all times appreciated. Not even to serve that day however simply as a little bit one thing to have available after they depart. You clearly can’t have an excessive amount of of this available in any respect time but when I do know I’m going to a good friend’s and am stopping by a market or see one thing contemporary/native earlier than, I seize it to deliver. It feels distinctive.
WINE OR PROSECCO: I often maintain just a few chilly bottles of prosecco in our fridge to deliver final minute or a pleasant bottle of wine. To make it really feel extra thought-out, I additionally maintain easy wine luggage available which makes issues really feel extra completed (vs. simply grabbing what you’ve got left over in your individual fridge – although there’s nothing incorrect with that!).
