There’s nothing like scoring an invitation to your friend’s house in the Hamptons or their Manhattan roof terrace with killer city views. But what to bring? Impress your host or hostess with a thoughtful gift from The Shops at Columbus Circle. Read on for the best picks for every personality. You might even find something for yourself.
For the Entertainer
You’ll be the life of the party when you give the Rabbit Freezable Cocktail Maker ($39.95) from Williams-Sonoma. An innovative bar tool, it will transform any drink into a frozen slushy. Frozé, anyone?
For the Health Nut
Is your host healthy in every way? Spoil them with these non-GMO, Vitamin A and C-infused gummy bears from Pressed Juicery x Sugarfina ($3.50-$14), which are delicious and totally guilt-free.
For the Foodie
Bake America Great Again ($17.95) is a charming cookbook from Papyrus with a sense of humor and recipes for all-American snacks including Freedom Fudge, Patriotic Pretzels, and more.
For the Design Obsessive
You can’t go wrong with a Diptyque candle. Take it to the next level with the hand-crafted Photophore candle holder ($100). Designed by the Jean-Marc Gady studio, this elegant piece will dress up any room.
For the Car Nut
Get their motor racing with a Playforever race car ($35-$50) from Toytoise. Available in a range of colors and styles, it is as much a toy as it is a timeless design piece that will bring out the kid in anyone.
For the Glamour Girl
This time of year calls for the Lancôme Summer Rescue Set ($78) from Sephora, which contains a serum, toner, and moisturizer to relieve dry skin and will leave your hostess feeling perfectly pampered.
For the Movie Buff
Is your host a Ringer? That’s the code word for someone who loves The Lord of the Rings. Pick up this limited-edition Collector’s Box ($34.95) from Moleskine. It’s the next best thing to visiting Middle Earth.
