The holidays are a season full of celebration and you’re bound to find your calendar filled with joyous holiday parties – including a few at Timbers Resorts! Share your gratitude for the opportunity to share these special moments filled with friends and family by bringing the perfect host/hostess gift, tailor selected for your hosts' interests. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
For the Gourmand: Food & Life
Where to Buy: Assouline.com
An elegant coffee table book from Assouline is always an appropriate gift, but this one is especially appropriate for hosts that cook up a storm during the holiday season. Food & Life is all about celebrating food as an essential part of life with gorgeous photography and recipes by world-renowned French chef Joël Robuchon who holds the most Michelin stars of any chef in the world.
For the Game Player: Hermes Card Game with Case
Price: $125 cards; $680 case
Where to Buy: Hermes.com
A game-loving host certainly already has all of the traditional games so surprise him or her with Mythes et Constellations – an Hermes game using elegant silver-edged cards. The game features seven families with seven family members each. The goal is to gather your entire family. How holiday appropriate! For an extra-special splurge, throw in a leather, Hermes playing card holder.
For the Amateur Mixologist: Monogrammed Bar Tools
Price: $34.95 bar tools; $32 shaker; $149 ice bucket
Where to Buy: Williams-Sonoma
Any hostess gift is immediately made more personal and elegant with the addition of a monogram. Adding that special touch is easy at Williams-Sonoma where there are a wide range of chic, customizable silver bar accessories sure to make any party more merry. Start with the bar tools set and then consider adding on a custom shaker and ice bucket.
For the Immaculate Entertainer: Elegant Soaps and Lotions
Where to Buy: Molton Brown
A perfectly appointed powder room is one of the subtle details that no practiced entertainer allows to slip through the cracks. Provide the perfect finishing touch with a festive collection of soap, lotion and aroma reeds from British bath and beauty brand Molton Brown. The scents of frankincense and allspice make this perfect for the holiday hostess.
For the Wine Collector: Jeweled Wine
Where to Buy: Kelly Wearstler
Attending the party of a wine collector can be a bit tricky. You obviously can't bring the traditional bottle of wine but you also want to cater to the host's passion and discriminating taste. An elegant quartz wine stopper, especially one from superstar interior designer Kelly Wearstler, is sure to fit the bill.
For the World Traveler: Cashmere Travel Set
Where to Buy: Ralph Lauren
If you're at the home of a Timbers Resorts Owner then you're in the presence of a practiced traveler, so why not give a gift that they're sure to love when on the go? Frequent fliers will go crazy for a kit of Ralph Lauren cashmere essentials including a throw blanket, an eye mask, and a zippered bag that doubles as a pillow.
A gift is the ideal opportunity to show appreciation to your host or hostess for bringing together loved ones for the holidays - and that's the best gift anyone can give.
