Sarah Richardson’s Favorite Hostess Gifts
With entertaining season upon us, we asked designer Sarah Richardson to divulge some of her favorite hostess gifts to give and get. Here’s a roundup of six items that get her seal of approval.
To get Sarah’s holiday dinner recipes and see her kitchen, pick up the November 2015 issue of House & Home.
“Bubbles make every occasion a special one,” says Sarah. This Laurent-Perrier champagne bottle comes ready to give with its limited edition copper filigreed birdcage-style case.
Pretty packaged soaps will help your hostess add a touch of elegance to their powder room. These ones from Barr-Co. are eco-friendly and come in interesting scents like blood orange amber and Spanish lime.
Your hostess will appreciate a soothing candle, offering her the perfect way to unwind post party.
“Gourmet ingredients make great gifts for the holidays,” says Sarah. These handcrafted maple syrups are made with 100 percent pure Prince Edward County produced syrup and come in three appetizing flavours: Light Amber, Dark Amber and Bourbon Infused.
More special than a typical box of chocolates, handmade truffles in a variety of unique flavours take indulging your sweet tooth to a whole other level.
You don’t have to be a foodie to appreciate this gourmet gift. Infused with Italian white truffles, this extra-virgin olive oil is the perfect finishing touch for meats, pizzas, vegetables and more.
