The Holiday season is always busy, but in such a fun way. There are all kinds of parties and dinners and drop-ins and festivities. This year, I’ve been gathering a stash of hostess gifts, so I can say “thanks for having us” easily, and at a moment’s notice.
First off, Saffron Marigold offers a great selection of really interesting, luxury cotton table linens. They are hand printed in India, and are all made using fair trade practices. Any of these would make a memorable gift for your favorite entertainer, however Ruby Kilim (shown below) is a particularly wonderful holiday gift.
You can see our entire collection of table linens here.
The gift collection I’ve created here is geared toward the hosts and hostesses who are a little out of the ordinary (in a good way). Travel, authentic experiences and any thing handmade or fair trade are the things that bring delight to this person… These gifts reflect their delights.
|Recycled Fabric Journal. These lovely little journals are made with recycled, embroidered cotton paper and are bound with a colorful cord, anchored with an ancient coin. What a treasure to share with someone you’re thankful for! (Noonday Collection)|
|Maya Recycled Glass Bowls. Can one have enough candle holders? I like to have a selection that I can switch out seasonally. These beauties are handmade from recycled glass in India, and make a useful, affordable gift. (Fair Trade Winds)|
|Theo Fair Trade Dark Chocolate with Orange. And now we get to talk about chocolate. I’m pretty sure you’ll get invited back to the next party if you bring this! Lucious 70% dark chocolate infused with the essence of fresh oranges. I’ll have one, too! (Theo)|
|“Age of Exploration” Globe Ornament. This 1745 replica globe would certainly be an attraction hung on a Christmas tree, but could easily be used year round suspended from a simple ornament stand. (1worldglobes.com)|
Before we go, I wanted to tease you with a glimpse of our own wonderful global selection of hostess gifts. (Did I mention that you’re sure to be invited back when you give Saffron Marigold? :) )
