When you don’t want to arrive to Thanksgiving dinner empty-handed and a bottle of wine isn’t enough, here, some host gift ideas that might help you get invited back.
For The Eclectic: A soft polka-dot bandanna from Love Adorned–perfect for Kate Hepburn or Georgia O’Keeffe fans and outdoorsy types.
For the Interior Design Obsessed: Wendy Goodman’s May I Come In. Wendy worked at Bazaar years ago when I started there and she knows homes. She is having a book signing tomorrow in Greenwich at Patrick Mele’s store, which I hope I make it to. (Am gifting this to myself.)
For the Cook: Salt. Good salt is everything.
For the Free Spirit: My friend likes to give crystals. I love the idea and would have never thought of it. Plus obelisks make nice objets. Just be sure to check what powers the crystal embodies before you choose one for a friend. You don’t want to send mixed messages.
For the Entertainer: A set of mixed color napkins from Hudson Grace, if you know their dining room decor or china, it makes it that much easier to pick them out.
For the Non Cook: These gorgeous looking (and I am sure as equally delicious) Mountain Rose apples from Food 52. But then, who wouldn’t want them?
