Simple Solution for a Perfect Host Gift

We all like to express appreciation for an invite, but sometimes there’s that awkward little shuffle at the door. Your host greets you with a hectic hello and a quick thanks, while thinking about their simmering pots on the stove or the appetizers that need to go on a tray.

Opening a gift and expressing proper appreciation, or running off to find a vase for flowers, is not #1 on their list of priorities in the moment.

Here’s a simple solution – simply put together an R&R kit that they can use to unwind the day after the party and seal the deal with a large, mysterious tag that says “Don’t Open for 24 Hours.”

Your host can set it aside guilt-free and look forward to a surprise the next day.

What goes in the R&R gift? If you know the host well, you can choose their favorite ways to relax. If you don’t, there are treats that almost everyone enjoys.

  • Candies, chocolates, miniature cookies, fudge
  • Spa day essentials like lovely bubble baths, soaps and lotions
  • Gift Card for their favorite music downloads
  • Pretty teacup, tea or coffee and imported shortbread
  • Gift Card for a movie or dinner
  • Interesting bottle of wine and a fun wine bottle stopper
  • Luxurious beeswax candles
  • Gift Card or certificate for a massage and essential oils
  • Cute picnic blanket, two glasses and a bottle of wine
  • Artisan marble cheese board, cheese and crackers

Pack your choice in a cute box or bag labeled “R&R Kit” and remember the big tag that says “Don’t Open for 24 Hours.”
