Going to a friend’s house this weekend and need a great last-minute hostess gift besides the typical wine and cheese go-to?
I was searching for the perfect dress for an upcoming Mediterranean trip and was completely distracted at Anthropologie yesterday. I could not escape the home section! They have a wonderful selection of unique kitchen, bed, and bath items. I wanted to pick up everything to smell the candles and soaps, and touch the fabrics. Everything had personality! Many cute yet practical items that people appreciate. I found two cook books that were simply calling my name (see my picks below), one almost literally, but they would make a great gift.
A gifted hardcover book, written with a special note on the inside cover, is an affordable and thoughtful gift. If you have more time and can also present the book with a homemade cake or artfully selected baked goods for brunch your host will be touched. If your friend is more of an eBook reader, then candles, specialty soaps, journals, and teacups all make thoughtful gifts. All of these can be found in one quick stop in Anthropologie, which means you can focus your attention on other things like your weekend attire!
