With all the gatherings this time of year, a stash of quality hostess gifts can eliminate stressful last-minute shopping. Below are some unique gift ideas that say simply, “Thank you for inviting me to your home.”
TASTEFUL TREATS. Breakfast is best when pancakes are smothered with Woodinville Whiskey Co.’s barrel-aged maple syrup – truly a flavor to savor. Fran’s Caramel or Raspberry Sauce puts a sweet finishing touch on ice cream, or as a dip for fresh fruit. A box of Danish Kringle is a delicious pastry treat perfect for Christmas morning or New Year’s Day. A rosemary wreath or mixed herb bowl is a welcome addition to a bright kitchen window.
HAPPY HOUR. Get things off to a merry start with a gift for the bartending host. Keep drinks full-flavored with SPARQ whiskey rocks – simply add a few chilled rocks to your favorite libation and it will stay cooler, longer, and without dilution. Get back to basics with festive corkscrews, bottle openers and other handy barware from Twine. Surprise the wine-lover with a Rewined scented candle that mimics the tasting notes of wine and is made of repurposed wine bottles – available in varietals like pinot grigio and merlot.
LIVING BOUQUETS. Flowering indoor plants last longer than cut flowers, and Molbak’s carries many options to celebrate the season. Blooming azaleas offer a frilly floral display that looks sweet in the center of a kitchen table. Unusual Shooting Star hydrangeas sparkle with star-shaped white blooms on long stems. Colorful Christmas Cactus is easy to grow, and will bloom for several weeks. Many of our flowering plants can be dropped into a festive container to complete the look.
So relax and relieve some of the stress of the season with a visit to Molbak’s, where you’re sure to find the perfect hostess gifts for all your holiday celebrations.
