It’s that time of year again; it’s like you can feel it in the air…or wait, maybe you can smell it! That’s right, it’s BBQ season! Summer is around the corner, and it’s probably about time where you and your friends will be dusting off the backyard BBQ to start grilling up some tasty treats. You’re probably going to start getting invited to lots of summer BBQs, too, and it’s rude to show up empty-handed. Unless you’re asked to bring a dish, it’s probably better not to. Instead, why not bring a really great hostess gift?
It may seem old-fashioned to bring a gift to the host or hostess of a party, but why? Think about it, they opened their home to you and probably worked hard to get things ready for the day. They are feeding you some delicious BBQ and putting together a fun day for you and your friends. It’s a nice gesture to show them you appreciate their effort and they might keep inviting you back for more food and fun. So why not show up with a hostess gift and show them you are thankful for all they do?
When it comes to the best hostess gift ideas, you can never go wrong with flowers. Flowers will brighten up any space and are a beautiful way to say thanks. Have you heard of anyone complaining about receiving flowers? So what are the best flowers for a host? There are plenty of good options to choose from. Here are some of our favorites.
The name “sweet pea” sends a pretty good message to the host or hostess. In Victorian England, sweet peas were given to people to thank them for a good time, so giving someone sweet peas as a hostess gift is the perfect way to say thank you. Not only that, but they smell amazing and come in beautiful lavenders, pinks, or bi-colored flowers. Bringing your hostess sweet peas is a really sweet gesture!
Can anyone look at a daisy and not feel happy? They are like sunshine in a flower, which makes them the perfect hostess gift idea for that summer BBQ. Daisies come in a wide variety of colors and sizes so they can be tailored to match any occasion. Did you get invited to a Fourth of July BBQ? You can get red, white, and blue daisies for your hostess. Bonus points–bees love daisies. So you’re giving your hostess a beautiful hostess gift and helping save the bees at the same time.
Is there a flower more elegant than the orchid? Orchids are symbolic of love and luxury, so if you really want to treat your hostess to a luxurious flower like the royalty that she is, orchids are perfect. Orchids are also very tough flowers to kill and easy flowers to take care of, so they could enjoy this hostess gift for months to come. Orchids come in almost any color, with the exception of black, so you can pick your orchid to match the host or hostess’ taste.
Bonus Points–Chocolate or Wine
Maybe this hostess is someone who has gone above and beyond for you. Maybe you’re coming from out of town and staying with them for a few nights. Whatever the reason, you want to pair a beautiful Bouq with something else. You probably shouldn’t bring a food dish to the BBQ unless you were asked, as your hostess probably picked out everything on the menu ahead of time and you don’t want to overwhelm them with any unexpected foods. So why not bring wine? Wine is always a great way to liven up a party, or it could be a special treat your hostess enjoys in the coming weeks. Don’t know anything about wine? Try finding some decadent chocolates or sweet treats.
Even if you don’t pair your hostess gift with chocolate or wine, a beautiful Bouq of season flowers is one of the best gifts a hostess could receive. Browse our selection today.Shop All
