Hostess Gifts That Will Really Impress
You know how the conversation goes. You ask: “What should we bring?” Your host replies: “Nothing but yourself.” (That’s code for: "I'd better bring something!") Surely, your host has the party well planned and in control, but tuck these clever gifts from The Shops at Columbus Circle into your tote to show your appreciation and help make it the #bestpartyofsummer2017.
The Ultimate Cocktail Shaker
Nothing signals a celebration better than the sound of a cocktail shaker in action. Arrive with the cobbler-style Williams-Sonoma shaker ($49.95) filled with your host's favorite mix and offer to make the first round. Cheers!
Stir up some laughs with a good-natured round of “Guilty as Charged!” ($19.95), a grown-up game from Papyrus. The silly questions are fun and provocative ice-breakers and conversation starters. May the guiltiest partygoer win.
A hand-selected box of La Maison du Chocolat macarons ($74) in delectable summery shades is sure to sweeten up any evening. These bonbons might not make it until dessert, however, so be sure to set aside another box for later.
The “You Had Me at Tequila” bento box ($28) from Sugarfina is filled with some very spirited goodies. Sugarfina teamed up with celebrity tequila maker Casamigos to create infused candies that are intoxicatingly delicious.
Amazon Books sells a waterproof UE Boom 2 Tropical Wireless Mobile Bluetooth Speaker ($199.99 or $149.99 for Amazon Prime members), so that your host can download the hottest dance tunes and play them indoors or under the stars.
Spa at Home
Want to leave behind something that will make them remember you? Pick up Verbena salt scrub ($36) from L’Occitane. The refreshing scent appeals to both girls and guys, and will spoil your host long after the last guest goes home.
