Great gift ideas for summer celebrations
When you ring that doorbell, greeting your host with a gift adds to the party mood. Here are some tips for presents that promise to last long – either as they are, or as something to remember.
A sweet welcome
Bringing a homemade cake will hit the spot at any party. To preserve the thought beyond consumption, include a cake stand. Even better, it now has its own eye-catching pedestal until it’s time to dig in.
A flower arrangement to keep
A guest with a beautiful bouquet is always welcome. Take it a step further – and save hassle for your host – by bringing the vase as well. To make it a long-term gift, why not use flowers that won’t fade?
Arrive with tasteful gifts – served
Kitchen accessories come ready with a theme. A chopping board makes a nice gift, but works even better as a complete cheese platter. Voila, you have a gift to enjoy from the first moment.
A connecting theme makes a gift all the more memorable. Consider a thoughtful type of wrapping for the present. Another way can be to combine short and long effects, for instance giving flowers already arranged in a vase."

A glass jar (or other reusable container) can work as part of the gift, but also as its wrapping. Functional from start to end, whether it’s for stylish storage or as a food container. (Or, if needed – regifting.)
