Cake in a Jar

If you're on a budget (and let's face it, the vast majority of us are), it's always nice to gift your friend with a little something homemade. These "better than heaven" cakelets, in a cute jar no less, will guarantee you friends for life.


The Ultimate Shower Kit

Chock full of loofahs, fancy soaps and cozy robes, we're totally smitten with Bri's ultimate shower kit! Who doesn't love a luxurious bath regimen now and again?

Champagne & Strawberries

Especially enticing when strawberries are at their peak, give your host a basket filled with all the essentials for a fancy tea party (hold the tea). Creme fraƮche, a basket of berries, some scones and a bottle of crisp champagne go a very long way!

Fancy Flowers

In a pinch, a small bouquet of flowers does wonders. Consider wrapping them in adorable paper and twine for a bit of a special touch.

Waiting on Martha has some great tips here!

Chevron Box

Let's be honest, anything gifted in a handmade chevron box is totally a win. But when you're handing over some homemade nutella, a collection of vintage dessert plates and some bite size banana bread I guarantee you'll be putty in their hands.

Homemade Scarves

If you're looking for something totally out of the norm, how about recreating some of Hello Natural's hand painted scarves? Personal, usable, and totally cute.


A Crate of Ice Cream

When time is of the essence, we're not above leaving it to the experts. Eat Boutique and Dean & Deluca have mastered the art of the gift basket. But we're particularly smitten with Williams Sonoma's ice cream box!

A Basket of Goodies

A basket stuffed with baked goods is always a great idea. Our suggestion: quiche, local honey and delicious pastries. Tuck in some seasonal flowers, a linen tea towel and you, my friend, are off to the races!
