Red, white, blue, and rosé. These are the colors of summer! We're making the most this three-day weekend (and honoring those who have made the ultimate sacrifice) by celebrating our families, our friends, and our freedom. Fun, sun, and the start of the sizzling hot season. Ahhh...
If you're headed to a barbecue, pool party, our outdoor shindig this weekend (or any time this summer, really!), we've got a few fun gift ideas for your host or hostess with the most or mostess (with a boozy theme, duh!) to keep you perpetually on the invite list.
Fresh Flowers: You can never go wrong with a lovely little bouquet of blooms. Peonies are in season, and no hostess will turn you away with a perfectly pink bunch of those little pretties. Sadly, my Trader Joe's floral section was depleted, but I still snagged this mini arrangement for under $4. Add a bottle of rosé and put both in this cute (and patriotic, I might add) reusable tote (just $8 at Old Navy), and you have yourself the sweetest hostess gift.
Corkcicle: Bringing a bottle of unchilled white to your neighbor's house? No problem. Gift that dry Sauvignon Blanc with a Corkcicle ($25). This nifty "gadget" perfectly chills your wines to the ideal temperature each and every time. Just store in the freezer for 90 minutes and insert into your favorite bottle.

Stylish Beach Accessories for a Day in the Sun, Sand, and Surf
I've been coveting this Eugenia Kim sun hat that's been all over Instagram for the past two months. With a wide-brim and the words "Do Not Disturb" embroidered on the front, it's the ideal accessory for a quiet day of reading on the beach. Built-in shade, some peaceful privacy, ...read more
How to Get Your Child Involved in Ski Racing
Do you ever watch the Winter Olympics with your family? We sure do at this house. Seeing the ski racers fly down the mountains was a big part of what attracted our girls to ski racing, but the biggest draw was friendship and time spent in the snow. If you are wondering how to get ...read more
Coffee for the Morning: Wine tonight without the whine tomorrow! If you're sure your party-throwing pal is going to be indulging tonight, help them kick-start the day tomorrow with a fresh batch of merlot-infused coffee beans ($20). Because, a cup of joe—or two—is going to be necessary in twelve hours.
Champagne Pool Float: The giant swan or flamingo or pineapple is so overdone. Why not gift your pool-party host a giant floating champagne bottle ($59) instead? Nothing could be classier... except, you know, an actual bottle of Veuve.
Drinking Buddies Wine Markers: Headed to your bestie's beach house? These kitschy-silly drink markers ($15) are a silly, sassy, and sexy little giftie for the hostess with humor.
Truth is: You can never go wrong with a bottle of nice wine! But paired with something with personality, you've got yourself a fabulous host or hostess gift. Have a great weekend!
