The right hostess gift can make such a difference to your social life.
"Why thank you so much Jennifer! Did I mention that I'm having a pool party next weekend? I'd love for you to come."
"Jennifer gave you that? My, I think I should invite her family up to the cottage for the weekend."
"That lovely gift came from Jennifer? I was just thinking of asking her over for our cocktail party tomorrow evening."
A bottle of wine is always welcome, but it won't get you the "ooohs and aaaahs" of a creative and unique gift...and this summer I've found a great one.
Tea is all the rage, and one of the hottest beverage trends out there. I can spend hours wandering around a tea store, sniffing the leaves and sipping the samples.
Summer doesn't mean you have to pack away the tea and all its healthful benefits. Check out this Mist Iced Tea Jug from David's Tea. Simply add your favourite tea leaves, 2 cups of hot water and fill to the top with cold water. Put it in the fridge, and in 3 hours you've got a 1.5 litre jug of homemade steeped iced tea. Delicious and refreshing!
The jug sells in-stores and on-line for just $29.50. Add a selection of looseleaf teas specifically made for iced tea (Luscious Watermelon? Perfect Pair? Strawberry Shortcake? Yum!) and you've got yourself a fantastic hostess gift...guaranteed to boost your social calendar!
