Summer gift guide: 11 Gorgeous Hand Picked Gifts Your Hosts Will Love

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

I know, I know,  I'm a little late. Fall fashion and school supplies are already being sold out in stores. But we still have a few solid weeks of summer left, so let's enjoy every single minute! Some of us are still going away and enjoying vacations and weekends with friends and relatives. 

While many posts focus on packing lists and summer-to-fall style, some of us are stressing over what to bring our wonderful hosts. So here's a a list of 11 gorgeous hostess gifts hand-picked by me, to shop straight from this post! 

I specifically looked for items with a high FAB factor that would go with every type of decor and taste, so you have one less thing to worry about when getting ready to go away. You may even decide to buy yourself a present too. You deserve it!

Why I love this: It's a classic that will bring gorgeous color to any room.
