Hostess Gifts, UncategorizedGreat Summer Gifts and Beach Tote Give-away!June 23, 2012 By classiccasualhome 122 Comments Hooray for Summer! Such a fun time of year for us in Newport Beach and Mammoth Lakes, California. Here are some gifts to make you and/or your hostess smile. How cute is this well-made bag from Vineyard Vines with details like the stitching and checked liner??? Our son has a summer job at the local store. You should have this to kick off your summer so keep reading. You can find more cute tote bags from Etsy at Sixth Street Design School here. A hostess gift is really nice when it is personalized. These melamine trays are fun by the pool and there are lots of other cute patterns. We gave these frosted plastic cups with the shell to our friends for letting us stay in their Awesome Beach Penthouse. Fine Stationary has some great personalized paper guest napkins. You can also find a good selection at The Stationary Studio. How about these pretty napkins for a colorful dinner outside? Or… I always love fresh dishtowels. My cousin, a recent house guest, gave us these delicious teas from Starbucks. When I am at garage sales or flea markets, I look for silver spoons … to wrap with tea or jam, like delicious French Bonne Maman, available at many grocery stores. Take a box of chocolates…especially if it is local brand that your host doesn’t have. This box of See’s candies only looked like this for about 30 seconds after we opened it (thank you, Billy). This pitcher from Anthropologie would be a sweet present to give filled with fresh lemons and a recipe card… NOW FOR THE FUN SUMMER GIVE-WAY… Not complicated, just follow me via Facebook, email subscription or Google and tell me you are with a comment below… for a chance to win this Vineyard Vines tote. Make sure I have your email address. Happy Summer everyone and thanks for reading! PS.
