Hostess Gift Picks from Morning T

More great gift picks are coming your way today from Morning T ...another blog I love to read! When I saw her first pick, I knew this post was going to be good! I hope you enjoy....
Sidney over at SoChic blog is getting married this fall. She combines her Southern background with her love of entertaining in her always insightful and fun blog. Today's post is dedicated to her upcoming wedding and ways to thank the various hostesses involved in helping her celebrate.

When invited to someone's home for a dinner party I typically take a bottle of wine or flowers. When the occassion is something a bit more intimate and special like a wedding, a more personalized hostess gift might be in order.

Of course I'm a one-stop-shop kind of girl and I don't know many women out there who don't just L.O.V.E Anthropologie. Check out the variety of hostess gifts I found below, all under $35.

For the fashion diva hostess~ Anthropologie's Shadowed Vine Scarf ($28 here):

Or this Iced Stephanotis Ring ($28 here):

For the kitchen diva hostess~ Anthro's Pure and Good Hand Duo ($34 here): Or the Fleur De Lys Sugar and Creamer ($10 here):
Along with the Stockholm Flora Pot Holder set ($12 here):
For the garden diva hostess~ two or three of these Aged Herb Pots with herbs already planted ($8 each here): Don't exactly know what type of diva your hostess is?
You can't go wrong with candles.
The Capri Blue Mercury Glass Candle ($25
Or a set of four of these Silver Leaf Votives (add the candles yourself) Flare, Tea Lites ($6 each here):

Of course packaging is everything so wrap it up with lots of TLC and you will have a happy hostess!


  1. Love the scarf... and the last two candles!

  2. Thanks again for including me in your hostes gift series Sidney! It was fun to pull it together and I'm SO sorry for my non-tech-savviness in trying to get this to you. :)

  3. That scarf is 2 die 4 I LOVE LOVE TAHT one!! NO Anthro here, but....if there was....I would go there in a heartbeat, would NOT buy food for a week and buy the scarf, lol. Well oke, plus some food haha.

    Hugs from Marian in the Netherlands (hence the no Anthropology store duh)

  4. Morning T you are the best!!! I love everything you picked. You can't go wrong in that store. I am always looking at that soap & lotion set every time I go in there. I think we would have fun shopping together.
