Summer Hostess Gift Ideas

Summer is definitely the most laid-back season. People tend to find the time to host more dinner parties, plan weekend getaways, have last-minute BBQs, and all-around enjoy the weather with the people they love. If you’re like me, you don’t like showing up somewhere empty handed. Sure, you can bring a bottle of wine or box of pastries, but there are plenty of more creative options that are sure to impress, and make the hostess feel appreciated. Today I’m sharing a few creative summer hostess gift ideas perfect to bring to the next get-together you’re invited to. These ideas are also great for welcoming a new neighbor, congratulating someone on their new home, and even birthdays.

For the wine-lover

Everywhere you turn lately, you see rosé this, and rosé that. And rightfully so. It’s a delicious wine, and there are so many adorable rosé-themed products out there. If the person you’re gifting to loves wine, definitely consider creating a rosé themed gift box for them. Consider including things like a bottle of wine (duh), glassware, a book about the wine, and candy. I personally love including pieces from Minted. Their pieces are personal and special, and since so many amazing artists design items for Minted, there is sure to be something for everyone. This rosé s’il vous plaît print is just the cutest.

For the lemon-lover


Lemon print has become so trendy in recent months, and it’s such an easy print to incorporate into a hostess gift. Who doesn’t love lemonade in the summer? Create a DIY lemonade gift complete with a pitcher, lemons, a mixing spoon, napkins, and any other lemon-print product you can get your hands on. Everyone knows Minted has an amazing selection of art and invitations, but did you know they also create home goods? Minted Home includes products like pillows, napkins, curtains, shelves, and so many other cute home and party decor pieces. For the lemonade gift, artist Kirby Lee Smith has an incredible print called Lemon Grove that is available on a variety of different products like the pillow and napkins I included in this gift. There are tons of prints and designs created by other artists that you can definitely include in any themed gift.

I hope you like my hostess gift ideas! Will you be giving any hostess gifts this summer?
