Personal Styling: Summer’s Best Hostess Gifts

From pool parties to beach bonfires to just-because-it’s-Tuesday get-togethers, no other season is as fete-packed as summer. And any guest worth her margarita salt knows that bringing along a little something for the hostess is not only appreciated, it’s de rigueur. Sure, you could default to the summer standby of chilled rosé (we don’t deny that it’s lovely and refreshing), but why not think outside the wine bottle and try one of these thoughtful combos arranged by our personal stylist Christina?

DIY 14 Homemade Herb and Spice Blend Recipes from Wellness Mama here. A small basket of these would make a nice gift and another “assembly line” DIY i.e. you can make several at a time. Someone messaged me about what I gave people for the holidays and I responded that for most people I gave “assembly line” gifts like infused vinegar, infused olive oil, spa gifts, jewelry kits like friendship bracelet kits, wax dipped pine cone fire starters in galvanized cheap large buckets etc… For close family and friends I like to give one of a kind gifts.

DIY Easy Herb Infused Honey Tutorial from Free People. Suggestions for ingredients to infuse: thyme, sage, mint, ginger, lavender, peppermint, vanilla beans, rosemary and cinnamon sticks. If you don’t want to strain the honey with cheesecloth before giving it as a gift, I’d find some way to incorporate it into the packaging. Not everyone has cheesecloth on hand.
