We all have that friend with the stunning house and a knack for hosting summer’s most memorable nights. So this year, make sure to show your appreciation with a standout thank-you gift. Here are a few ways to wow, whether you’re crashing for just a night or the whole weekend.
- Bring a treat from your hometown – think local beer or baked goods that aren’t available where you’re headed. Pack the brews in a monogrammed tote or take along a cake stand for the sweet eats.
- Give your host an item that suits the guest room for future visitors to admire, like a carafe, coffee-table book, or scented candle.
- Come bearing a collection of entertaining musts: a personalized carryall complete with snacks, a cheese board, wine, wineglasses, and a favorite board game. Then, kick-start the fun.
- Post-trip, send a framed photo from the weekend. Memories? Coming right up.
Equip your arsenal with these picks and more in our Gifts Under $30: Never Show Up Empty Handed Boutique, which opened Wednesday, July 1, at 11AM ET.
