At this time of year that we start going to gatherings at people’s homes & need to bring along a little something to say thank you for friendship, tasty treats, and inspired libations. Here are three things that I will be brining to people’s houses this year.
Last year when I was at the New York Gift show, we found this amazing candle line. All hand mixed and poured in Chicago these soy/bee blend candles are stunning. The Ambient collection is inspired by the dada art movement & are intended to provide a pure, clean, unobtrusive dining experience. In scents like crushed mint, ginger & balsamic it is hard to pick just one.
The Lafco shea butter soaps have a cult following & are really amazing. There are 4 different gift assortments & they each give a sampling of five different scents. Also, these are great for traveling, just small enough to bring along & you don’t have to worry about packaging up at the end of your stay.
If I am in a pinch, or just want to bring a little added cheer I stop by the liquor store & pick up this very sophisticated libation… Ok so it might not be from the top of the shelf, but it is a crowd pleaser & friendly on you when there are events every night of the week!
