Next time you attend a dinner party or spend the weekend at a friend's home or cottage, show your appreciation with a one-of-a-kind hostess gift.
Grilling Planks: Add a few extra boards, a sprig of thyme, and a fish spatula.
Vintage Books: Look for unusual out of print cooking and gardening books, something the host wouldn't usually buy. Look for beautiful coffee table books with charming covers.
Portable Garden: Give your friends a portable garden which can carry fresh herbs such as basil, oregano, and rosemary.
