Surprise your hostess with a unique gift.
This porcelain key and tassel candle combines an elegant design and rich colours with a soft, pink champagne scent. Re-use the porcelain container to store jewelry afterwards.
French soaps are a longtime favourite hostess gift. L’Occitane puts a new spin on the go-to gift with their Picnic in Provence gift set, which includes honey soap, almond shower oil, verbena shower gel and more, all packed into a reusable wicker picnic basket.
These pretty, richly-coloured tea towels add style to a kitchen but are also tough enough to stand some wear and tear.
Artfully planted bonsai and cacti from Kermodi make a stunning alternative to flowers for your hostess.
This serving set comes with a variety of small bowls and matching spoons that we might not buy for ourselves, but that come in handy when entertaining. Use them to serve olives, jams and spreads. Bonus: use the slate platter to scribble your offerings in chalk.
Complete with Earl Grey, Heavenly Cream, Peaches and Cream and Rouge Provence, and wrapped with a bow, this gift set will delight any tea lover.
