Today we’re focussing on gift giving! You’ll be inspired to have everything wrapped long before Christmas (or whatever your holiday celebration may be) and have gifts at the ready for all your gracious hosts. Read more

Leftover Halloween Candy Bark

If you’re anything like me, you “accidentally” bought too much Halloween candy and still have loads leftover. And while I know the last thing on your mind is even more sweets, this leftover Halloween candy bark makes a great host/hostess gift as we get into entertaining season.

Vanilla Simple Syrup Hostess Gift

I don’t know about you, but I often find myself visiting friends or neighbours’ homes and wishing that I had something a little more interesting than wine to offer as a hostess gift. Don’t get me wrong – wine is a wonderful gift. But it’s sometimes nice to show up with something a little different.  And who doesn’t love receiving something sweet (and oh so pretty)?

Although it’s great in cocktails, over ice cream, and with summer berries, vanilla-infused simple syrup also pairs nicely with hot cocoa, coffee and pancakes so this is also a lovely gift leading into Fall and the holidays beyond. Just change up your labels to something festive and you’re set!
