Have you guys ever noticed how something shifts in the air the minute the seasons start to change from summer to fall. After spending months outdoors causally hanging out with friends, a slow shift starts to happen. All of a sudden you start spending far more quality one-on-one time with your friends & family, most likely in a more intimate setting.
I always chalk up shift in entertainment to the time of the year. With the holiday season fast approaching, I tend to want to spend more time indoor with my friends and family. My calendar is quickly booking up for the rest of the year with baby showers, birthday parties, dinner parties, and so much more. It’s going to be a busy and exciting time of the year.
Over the years I’ve learned just how important it is to bring a small gift with you when visiting friends. Something simple to give to a host/ess as a token of appreciation. A hand written note on a lovely card goes a long way these days, and that’s why I always keep a stack of PAPYRUS greet cards on hand for just these types of occasions. I recently picked up a whole new set of beautifully embellished cards inspired by Taylor Swift from the exclusive line of PAPYRUS cards at Target. I love how beautiful and upbeat the cards are, making them perfect for any occasion. There are 44 designs in the collection, allowing you to have a full set to use throughout the year.
Now to the most important part – the gift! I think it’s extremely important to bring a bottle of wine/spirits/juice with you as a small gift. I usually keep a few bottles of my favorite wine on hand so that I’m always prepared for any last minute get-togethers that pop up. The key to said host/ess gift? Presentation! Even better if it’s the eco-friendly kind.
Whenever I’m at Target, I take a look at the Dollar Spot section where I can usually find a few tea towels for about a $1. I purchase a few in a variety of colors/prints and use that to wrap my bottle of wine. Both items are something your host will use and it cuts down on garbage. Simply wrap your bottle of wine with a tea towel and tie up with ribbon. Grab a matching PAPYRUS x Taylor Swift card and you are out the door!
I would love to hear of other small gifts you guys bring with you to events! I would love some more ideas to spice things up this season.
