our favorite hostess gifts: beach edition

Let’s face it. Friends with beach houses are the best. It’s not the reason we love them, but it certainly is nice. It’s important to show your appreciation when paying them a visit with a thoughtful and useful gift for the hostess. Here are our favorite hostess gifts from Kiskadee this summer.

Hostess Gifts

TURTLE TEA LIGHT CANDLE HOLDER: The perfect and perfectly charming addition to any beach house.

FISH TRAY: A functional and thematic tray to be used at the dinner table for her favorite dish or the dressing table for her favorite jewelry.

FISH BOTTLE OPENER: For the party crowd and possibly the most useful gift we’ve featured here.

Typically, we keep the nicer serving set at home and the beach house gets the hand-me-down that is no longer suitable for special occasions and to be seen by the masses. Clearly, however, your hostess likes to entertain so she will love having a special set to use while at the beach!

For your stylish, these are the perfect nod to the beach but something she can enjoy anywhere and anytime.
