Occasionally, the climate control in a hotel room can leave a lot to be desired. Ideally, staying at a hotel should feel like a comfortable home-away-from-home. This travel humidifier could be a genius solution to creating a more comfortable climate on the road. It would make a great gift, too, for travelers in your life.
These measuring spoons from Anthropologie would make a wonderful hostess or housewarming gift! Aren’t they adorable?
I can’t take credit for this idea which I found on Pinterest. Wouldn’t this make for a great hostess gift for a BBQ or a craft or microbrew beer fan? Galvanized bucket. Craft beers. Two pint glasses. Optional ice. Done!
It is always nice to show the people who have been there for you throughout the wedding process a little thanks when your day has come. The easiest way to do this is give your bridesmaids and groomsmen a small gift as a token of your appreciation for their support. Your bridesmaids will always love a little piece of jewelry to remind them of your day, but what do you get the groomsmen? Real Simple came up with a list of unique groomsmen gifts and here are a couple of my favorites.
This is the perfect gift for the groomsmen who love to play golf. The coasters covered in grass looking turf will keep his coffee table ring-free while sticking with his sporty style!
This is another great groomsmen gift for the guys who like to party. This set comes with the bottle, honeycomb staves and instructions on how to make his own personalized drink!
I had a small soiree at my house last night and served appetizers and a selection of desserts. I always try to offer a special cocktail in addition to wine, water, and nonalcoholic beverages. Last night, I was inspired to do a champagne punch to complement the menu and found this delicious recipe on Epicurious. It does pack a wallop, but it is really festive and tasty. It would be beautiful served in this silver-banded punch bowl from Williams-Sonoma.
