Haute Hostess Gifts for Summer Entertaining

Hostess gifts aren't just for the holidays! This summer, surprise and delight your hostess with classy gifts to suit her personality and gathering - from cocktail hour to beach barbecue! We have compiled some of our favorites below.

An appreciated hostess gift, the CapaBunga® is a reusable silicone cap that reseals a bottle of wine after you remove the cork. It’s made to resemble the bungs used to seal barrels during winemaking. Once you remove the cork and re-seal the bottle with a CapaBunga®, it is liquid tight and the bottle can rest on its side or even upside down without leaking. No more jamming the cork back in the bottle, no more rearranging the fridge to fit an open bottle in the door! The open bottle can also be stored on its side in the fridge or on a wine rack, and CapaBunga® fits virtually every wine bottle.

Optari Sol Totes
Heading to a beach bash? Pack two or three bottles of wine for the hostess in Optari's all-weather Sol Tote, which is durable and waterproof, and has a multitude of uses - from beach or pool tote, gym bag, lunch tote, diaper bag, and more - there are dozens of uses! Customize the tote for your hostess with an initial Fobbz or perhaps a bling flower to make it even more special. Large Sol Totes are available in 6 bright, bold colors, including Red, Royal Blue, Yellow, Orange, Purple and Black.

Go Cocktails
Skinny versions of your favorite cocktail - to go! Go Cocktails are portable, single-serve, sugar-free, powdered cocktail mixers that come in a packet for those who are watching their health yet still want a high quality cocktail that tastes great, without guilt! So, yes - you can take the packet in your purse on a plane, to a party or anywhere - just add water and ice if you want a no alcohol libation or add the alcohol of your choice if you do want a skinny version of your favorite cocktail. Available in delicious flavors, such as Appletini, Lemon Drop, Margarita, and Cosmo.
