With the weather warm and the sun high in the sky, there’s plenty opportunities for entertaining during the summer season. A good guest shouldn’t show up to a party empty-handed, so you shouldn’t wait for an invitation to stock up on some good gifts for the host. If you’re preparing to step out to a rooftop party, barbecue or other summer party, consider bringing one of these boozy gifts to show your appreciation for the host.
1) Set of Girlfriends Stemless Glasses
If the occasion is girl’s night, gift your hostess this fun set of glasses. With a lipstick-kiss design, these glasses are perfect for a low-key night with the girls. Each glass features a different colour of lipstick, making it easy to remember which drink belongs to whom.
2) Wine Icon Wine Cooler
This wine cooler is both attractive and functional and is a gift your host can enjoy as soon as you walk in the door. It’s the perfect gift for a host or hostess who never has enough wine to drink. Pair it with a bottle of your favourite wine (or one you think the host will like) to further personalize the gift.
3) Wine Wraps
Okay, here’s a more casual alternative to the gift above. If bringing a bottle (or two!) of wine to the summer soiree, consider wrapping it in an attractive wine wrap. The burlap wrap is great for a casual, more rustic sort of affair. If you want to impress the host, try an elegant bottle bag instead.
4) Wine Condoms
A bit of a gag gift, but you can never be to safe with a box of wine condoms. This whimsical take on wine stoppers is a fun and simple way to preserve a bottle, and works exactly how you would imagine.
5) Rox & Roll Whisky Set
A sure way to ruin a good glass of whisky is to dilute it with melting ice. So how is one to keep it cold? Gift your host this “Rox & Roll” whisky set, which includes a stainless-steel ball that keeps drinks cold without diluting it. The shape of the glass allows the ball to swivel and roll around, making it fun to hold.
6) Set of Scotch Glasses by Glencairn
If your host has more traditional taste, gift them this beautiful set of Scotch glasses. Endorsed by the Scotch Whisky Association, this sophisticated set is designed to accentuate whisky’s taste for a satisfying sip.
7) Ricardo 5 Piece Set
This cocktail set is sure to charm any host, providing everything they need to mix and make the perfect cocktail. Including a measuring cup, shaker, citrus zester, muddler and strainer, this set will transform the recipient into the host with the most.
Coasters make for a great host or hostess gift because they come in several designs and materials. You can easily find a set that’s perfect for the host’s aesthetic taste among our wide collection of coasters available.
9) Red Corkscrew by Laguiole
This elegant corkscrew set from Laguiole makes for a useful gift for those who love to host friendly gatherings. Not only is this tempered steel corkscrew beautiful, but it comes with a high-quality and attractive leather case for storage.
10) Industrial Stripe Kitchen Collection
No, this gift isn’t very boozy—but your host is sure to cook something up on the grill, right? If so, consider gifting them a handsome apron that they can use immediately at the party.
