Host Gifts For Visiting A Friend’s Cottage

Has your friend extended an offer to escape from the city and visit their cottage for the weekend? Express your gratitude with a token of appreciation that will be a valuable addition to their cottage. Here are few ideas on host gifts for visiting a cottage:

Charcuterie Basket

If you’re looking forward to spend your weekend sitting lakeside with a glass of wine, you shouldn’t forget a delicious charcuterie board! Visit your local grocery store and select a few of your favourite cheeses and meats and combine them with a beautiful cheese board set, like this one at Williams Sonoma, as the perfect gift for all to enjoy!

Citronella Torches

A definite hindrance to a night at the cottage is the mosquitos and other insects buzzing around. Gift these stylish citronella torches to your guest for fashion and function. Torches like these ones are the perfect tabletop accessory and are portable so wherever the party goes, these torches can too!

Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

What is better than enjoying music while relaxing in the summer sun? This specific host gift is a perfect option because not only is it waterproof, but it is also runs on solar power so your music won’t stop until you do! It is even the best option to bring while out on a boat, if this speaker is accidentally knocked overboard, you won’t have to worry because it is designed to float!

A Bottle of Wine

A bottle of wine is a simple gesture of appreciation that will wonderfully add to your evening festivities. You can enhance your night with a wine that is a perfect addition to indulging in s’mores over a campfire. Look for a wine with rich cocoa notes or fruity undertones, like a Tawny Port.

Instant Camera

Let your host capture their summer memories at the cottage using an instant film camera. These cameras produce keepsakes that can be displayed throughout the cottage, or allows the host to snap a fun photo of each guest that visits that year. The Leica Sofort Instant Film Camera is a great high quality option on the market, and has unique features like its self-timer, which allows everyone to be part of the photos!
