thoughtful hostess gifts for overnight stays

I’ve received a lot of emails asking about hostess gift ideas for out-of-town stays – something different that what you’d typically bring to a dinner or cocktail party. One thoughtful idea for showing your appreciation is to give a gift geared towards rest & relaxation to help her recuperate after all the company is gone. Super stylish sleep masks or sleep-oriented bath products are great choices. (And if you’ve REALLY run her ragged, then I’m sure a spa certificate would be a welcome treat!)

Modern Wedding Invitations{pictured above} – argyle-print silk sleep mask & pillow set from violet.com ($42), assorted Cris Notti sleep masks from wrapables.com, and vanilla chamomile SLEEP body lotion and bath salts from bathandbodyworks.com

I love those ideas! I think you are totally right…you have to do something different than just a bottle of wine…the sleep masks really let the hostess know how much you value and appreciate sleep!

I like to send a “six pack sampler” from Dale & Thomas Popcorn (www.daleandthomas.com) after my stay, thanking the hostess for letting us “POP” in! :)
