Claus Porto Soaps

Transiting with a hostess gift can be tricky... Chocolate...it might melt. Wine...TSA regulations. Housewares...too heavy. Cosmetics...TSA regulations. The list goes on.

 

Therefore, by process of elimination, soaps and stationery are really great bets! We love these Clause Porto soaps because they are hand-packaged in beautiful wrapping inspired by old labels and patterns found in Claus Porto's archives.

Decoupage Wedding Invitation Tray

She probably poured over every invitation detail for quite sometime...so make sure she has one preserved and available forever. A decoupage wedding invitation tray will look great in a dressing room, bathroom or guest room. Right after you receive her invitation, send the invitation to Marye Kelley to get her custom decoupage tray started (it takes 4-6 weeks). This way, it will arrive in due time.

6-8 weeks

Shipping charges are determined by the dollar value of your order. Expect to pay between $8-$20.

The order process is manual. Ordering is done by mailing in the physical invitation, along with an order form printed out from their website. Within a week of receiving your package, the Marye Kelley team will send you a proof of the decoupage tray via email for approval. Once the proof is approved, expect an additional 4-6 weeks before the item is received.

Gift-wrap and message enclosure are free! Be sure to opt for gift wrapping on the order form and also submit a message.

Classic Earrings

For monumental events, classic jewelry is the perfect gift. It will remind her of the event and YOU for years and years to come!

 

Buying jewelry from an established retailer like Tiffany or Cartier is always a great option if doing so is within your budget.

We particularly like these pearl earrings because although they are quite expensive, they are very substantial!

While there are hundreds of stationery options out there, this set is extra special.  Why?  The packaging is ADORABLE! and the quality is top-notch (i.e. the paper ply is THICK and the icons are hand embossed revealing extreme detail).  No wonder this company has been around since 1880!

 

Please pay special attention to the delivery time for this gift!  Because it will be coming from Paris, it has one of the more lengthy lead times on the site!

Phalaenopsis Orchid Plant

Phalaenopsis orchids are the perfect gift...they can be gifted for many occasions!  However, as you can see here, we think they make particularly great hostess gifts! 

 

Since you might not always know the decor of your hostesses home, we suggest you pot the orchid in a plain glass base (as shown in image #1).  And, for added creativity (and when gifting for a more elaborate affair) you can even pot an orchid in a crystal/silver ice bucket so they can use the gift for years to come.  

 

In regards to where to buy your orchid? Head to your local Home Depot, Trader Joes or local grocery store.  To ensure a perfectly professional look, head to your local florist...Phalaenopsis orchid's are a staple! 

Baccarat Bud Vase

This bud vase is one of the entry price-points within this high-end french crystal line.  Additionally, the aesthetic is relatively transitional - allowing itself to look good in a variety of interiors (traditional, transitional, country, coastal, shabby-chic, mid-century).

Chanel Flats

When a female receives a piece of luxury on their birthday, it's very, very, unlikely she will complain.  However, for the giver, this is not really "good news" as luxury products are expensive!   

 

We have a solution (well, sort of)...go for the luxury shoes!  Luxury shoes are definitely less expensive than luxury jewelry or handbags and can be equally timeless.  We particularly love the idea of giving a classic chanel ballet flat.  We promise this shoe won't go out of style and can be incorporated into any female's wardrobe.  Alternative shoe options also listed below.

 

Oh, and one more tip...

 

Do you recall that Marilyn Monroe quote "Give the girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world?".  Yeah, we thought you probably didn't.  But anyway, the point is, why don't you weave this quote somewhere into the card to show how clever you are!

 

Finally...

 

In regard to where to buy.  We strongly suggest you purchase from a retail store rather than online!  Why?  Because the only online outlet that actually sells Chanel shoes is Chanel itself.  It is a better idea to buy from Saks or Neiman Marcus.  Some Nordstroms or Bloomingdale also carry them.  This allows the recipient to re-shop the gift with larger optionality, should she return the shoes.
