DIY Gifts for the Hostess

With Memorial Day weekend upon us, I’m guessing you have BBQs, picnics, and parties planned to officially kick off the summer season. As an invitee, it’s always a good idea to bring a hostess gift to show your appreciation to the busy hostess. Those of us who choose to host do it for the enjoyment, but it’s not always easy. So bringing a small gift will bring them a big smile at the end of a busy day of hostessing.

For something unique and inexpensive, consider one of these DIY hostess gifts from some of my favorite blogs and websites.

Make this light and fresh Homemade Lemon Soap from A Pumpkin and A Princess. It’s the perfect summer gift!

Nothing screams summer more than s’mores!  Bring them these S’Mores in a Jar from The Frugal Girls.

Great for men or women, and especially those friends you play scrabble with, create these scrabble tile coasters. Choose your own words and themes and make it personal.

As shown on She’s Kinda Crafty, these are designed as teacher gifts, but you can easily modify them for the girly hostess!
