The “What They Want” Gift Guide: The Hostess

hostess-gift-guide-vicki-archer2


A “personal” gift-guide to make your Christmas Hostess the merriest.

Many of us don’t think of it as an art, but gift-giving is the quintessential art of the holiday season.


It is a skilled craft of thoughtfulness, perceptiveness and creativity with a pinch of genuine effort that makes for the art of gift-giving.


As for the perfect gift – it must be exciting, startling and absolutely fabulous for the recipient. Anything less means it isn’t the perfect one.


Today’s gift guide is for the hostess. The one who puts their heart and soul into hosting deserves nothing less than a gift to measure up.



from one to ten

The Slipsilk Pure Silk Sleep Mask for a beauty sleep as soft as snowflakes.


Travelling doesn’t get any easier (or any more fabulous) than with the Smythson Panama Gift Set. “A currency wallet, passport holder, luggage tag and notebook all made from fuchsia textured-leather”. Yes, please.


From Buly, the body Tuberose Body Oil with notes of fresh white flowers, spicy clove and vanilla, for you to smell more delicious than the Christmas dinner.


No gift is complete without a box of sweets. And what tastes better than Sea Salt Caramels enrobed in dark chocolate? Maybe a Soft Nougat with almonds and pistachios? Whatever takes your fancy.


Nothing beats a hot bath in winter. Honestly, nothing. Except for a hot bath with the Susanne Kaufmann Essential Bath Oil.


We all have a sweet spot for our hometowns. A Personalized Hometown Map Puzzle mixes nostalgia with fun to make for the ideal activity on a cosy board games night.


You can’t go wrong with the iconic Fjallraven Kånken Backpack. It’s practical, chic, timeless. And this one is water-resistant too.


Take your favourite beverage anywhere with you, stay hydrated and stay stylish with the S’well Steel Water Bottle.


For those who dream of sunny islands and summer gardens during the cold seasons, there’s Cesare Cunaccia’s Capri Dolce Vita. A great read to send you right in the middle of beautiful Italy.


For a home to smell divine, there is the need for a fine diffuser. L’Officine Universelle Buly 1803 is a delicate porcelain box with a stone that absorbs and releases perfume. It is created in collaboration with the Louvre in Paris and inspired by a sculpture. Can you get any finer than that?
