She'll never forget who gave her this gorgeous gift and she'll love using it at parties in the future and telling the story of where she got it. Check out our Olive Wood Cheese Board here!
I'm singing the siren's song of Turkish towels. They are thinner than the beach towels you usually find in the United States, and that's a good thing! They absorb moisture quickly and completely and dry very quickly as well. Because they are thin they roll up quite tightly so you can fit them in your suitcase without the added burden of a traditional beach towel. The best part? They are HUGE so it's cozy to wrap up in one after a swim. These make a great stylish houseguest thank you gift when visiting friends and family who live near the coast or on a lake, or when you're visiting during the summer. We have these towels in four colors.
Staying for the Week
If you're staying for the week you want to bring an appropriate gift to thank your hosts for their hospitality. Your budget for this sort of thank you gift should be higher than for shorter stays.
Handmade Copper Mule Mugs
As long as there is summer, the Moscow Mule will never go out of style. There are few pleasures in the worlds quite like the first sip of a crisp and limey Moscow Mule in the dog days of summer. The beauty of these handcrafted copper Moscow mule mugs is that they will never go out of style. Classic design and superior craftsmanship make these a stylish houseguest thank you gift that your host will treasure for years. Do your host a favor and pick up a pair of Vesper & Vine's 18oz Copper Moscow Mule Mugs.
Record Player and Smart Media Player
My husband and I gifted one of these to each set of our parents at the rehearsal dinner the night before our wedding. We included a record of the song they would be dancing to at our wedding, "Unchained Melody" by the Righteous Brothers with the gift. The gift was a hit with both sets of parents and the guests in attendance who saw the gift. It's generous enough to show you appreciate and care while providing lasting value and entertainment. Check out the model we bought here.
