Gift picks: for the host(ess).

Old-fashioned? Perhaps, but I very much believe in hostess gifts. I love the idea of providing your host/hostess(es) with a thoughtful little treasure in return for opening their home. Dinner may simply call for arriving with a bottle of wine in-hand (I heart #3), but weekend stays (or longer) allow a bit more creativity in the gift selection process. Below, quick pics for a fail-proof gift...just in time for springtime travels:

 { 1. A rustic mangowood breadboard paired with a crusty, artisan baguette;   2. The cooking connoisseur's go-to spices: Herbs de Provence from Williams-Sonoma. Bonus? Super cute container for the counter;    3. Brilliance in a bottle: Occasion wines from Swanson Vineyards;    
4. No self-proclaimed cook would refuse this little number from Rife Paper Co. to house their most-prized culinary concoctions. }
