The post-Labor Day entertaining season is here. While plenty of parties will offer opportunities to mingle on balconies with cocktails and in friends’ homes for celebrations, the fall hostess gift can be hard to pin down. You’re not visiting a beach house, so nautical gifts are off the menu, and it’s not quite the holidays, so there’s no mistletoe or pine theme to keep up with. So we rounded up the best hostess gifts to bring this season.
Not only is this premium French olive oil full of flavor, it comes in a gorgeous assortment of bottles that look like vintage Chanel perfume sprayers. Even if your host isn’t much of a cook, this huile d’olive is a great addition to bread, salads and prepared dishes.
Anyone who loves entertaining would appreciate this award-winning tray in her home! The stylish aluminum piece is decorated with silicon bands that grip glassware and dishes placed on its surface. Hostesses prone to clumsy guests will certainly appreciate the GRIP.
A fall hostess is probably going to receive a few candles, but this luxury scented candle truly stands out from the rest. Not only is it an alluring black candle, its rose bouquet and blackcurrant scent provide a deliciously floral and soothing aroma.
To go above and beyond any type of candle gifting, opt for this super luxurious candleholder. This French crafted candleholder features a hammered silver plate base and rosewood candle holder that flips to hold three small tea lights or one larger candle. This gift truly brings the ambiance!
Jonathan Adler’s ceramics are gorgeous in any home, and this vase, new for Fall 2014, is the perfect addition to any decor! Gift with gorgeous seasonal flowers, of course.
