I very often find myself wanting to come up with something special to bring as a hostess gift. So years ago I started stocking up on little things I could put together when the time came , without having to stop by store.
This past year I began picking up pretty little creamer pitchers here and there at the thrift shop. Very reasonably priced, many missing their mates (the sugar bowls).
I fill them with flowers, and add a tag, the tag can simply say
Merci' or Thank You, or Get Well Soon, or like the one above, Happy Anniversary ( made for my boss on her special day).
My one tip is if the creamer is more petite, I keep the flowers the same, using buds, or smaller blooms. Pull them from your garden, whatever you have on hand.
My friends and co workers love them, and I find it a bit more special than just a card. There are countless ideas though, a special candle (pick up a few when they're on sale), I also fill a mesh bag with sea shells and add a pretty tag with vintage key, for a quick little thank you for any little thing.
Keep pretty mesh bags on hand you can fill with chocolates.
Just little ways to say thank you....and with that...Thank you all, xxx
