Show Appreciation to The Pool Party Host with One of These Simple Gifts
Forget flowers and wine! Here is a selection of gifts to bring to your next pool party or barbecue.
Summer is here and the days of picnics, barbecues, and pool parties are in full swing. No matter which party or gathering you attend, it’s a good idea to show appreciation for the host with small yet thoughtful gift.
Maralee McKee of The Etiquette School of America advises that a host gift is something a host or hostess would use while entertaining at home. This could be a future party, or during the week entertaining family and friends. She suggests avoiding flowers, food, and wine—which, for many of us are the typical go-to gifts. The exception would be bringing flowers in a vase so the host doesn’t have to stop hosting to arrange flowers, or food that can be used at a future event, such as a selection of teas for brunch.
If you’re wondering what to bring besides flowers, wine, or food, not to worry! We have compiled a list of six perfect gifts for your next barbecue or pool party.
