Congratulations! You're engaged! Wedding planning has begun and people are begging to throw you celebratory parties. You have planned your outfits for each party down to which Essie nail polish you're going to use. But have you thought about what to gift the hosts of the party to show your appreciation? Most of the time, the day before the party rolls around, and brides are panicked over what to give. There are a couple of factors to consider when picking a gift. Is there a theme of the party that you would like to stick to? What is the age of the person giving the party? What is your personal relationship with them? We have gathered a collection of gifts that are appropriate for most any age and party!
Who doesn't love cheese? A set of cheese knives and cheese from Stone Hollow Farmstead is the perfect gift for the foodie in your life. We are obsessed with Swell Bottles! In the summer, I love taking some wine on the boat or just to sit outside and cook out. Swell bottles can hold an entire bottle of wine and keep your beverage of choice cold for 24 hours. What more could you want?! Maybe your hosts have a bit of a green thumb or the party is garden themed? Visit my friend Mark at Leaf and Petal to gift them a magnolia tree, potted succulent, or even herbs! Of course y'all know I'm going to include some bubbly in the gift guide! Champagne as a gift is a great way to say thank you, and it can even be enjoyed at your party. Win Win! For a friend who loves having people over, gift them a hand towel for their powder room and a nice candle to freshen up their home. Continuing our love of local products, Oli.O olive oil could be perfectly paired with the Stone Hollow cheese! Hutton at Oli.O can guide you through the world of oils and how to incorporate them into basically everything. You can make cocktails, bake, cook, dip in bread...everything! Oli.O can be the perfect gift for every person! Your girlfriends are definitely going to throw you a party, and they will all love hand lotion and Liz Legg jewelry. Last but certainly not least--wine coasters! For the person you need to do a little bit more for, pair the Swell Bottle, Champagne, and wine coasters and your host will be thanking you all the way to the bottom of the bottle.
Again, we here at Handley Breaux Designs wish you a happy engagement and hope that you are having the time of your life! We know that our HBD brides are loving every minute. Now you can rest easy that you have figured out what to gift your hosts! Happy celebrating!
