A summer party is my favorite type of party (other than holiday parties!) because who doesn’t love an al fresco soirée on a warm night?! The summer season always seems to be rich with events of all types and sizes. I hate showing up empty-handed to parties, especially when they are thrown by my friends. One of my favorite directions to go when selecting summertime hostess gifts is to get something personalized.
In the summer, I love sipping on sangria so I instantly fell for these sangria glasses. They can be personalized with anything… I went classic and had mine inscribed with “cheers” but I love the idea of having them monogrammed for a party host! I had our pitcher monogrammed with a single bold “E” for our last name, Eversole. In addition to these two lovely summertime hostess gifts, I’ve rounded up a dozen or so other wonderful gift ideas too (scroll to the bottom)! Enjoy! xx
Rosé Sangria Recipe
If you’re looking for a delicious and refreshing summer cocktail to sip on, then you’ll love this watermelon strawberry rosé sangria. This recipe is also so easy to whip up on a whim! Ingredients: 2 bottles of rosé, 1 bottle of champagne or sparkling wine, 4 tbsp of simple syrup, 2 tbsp sugar, diced watermelon, diced strawberries, a handful or two of fresh mint, and optional: 2-4 tbsp raspberry liqueur. Sometimes, on a really hot day, I like to freeze the fruit before I put it in the sangria!
