BYOB may be the MO for the casual house party, but when your host is serving up hot rum toddies and canapés, you should show some gratitude. Here, some host gift ideas in Vancouver that will guarantee your invite to next year’s party.
For the Foodie
Choose between a Revol cheeseboard or dish at Les Amis du Fromage and be sure to include some knives. We also love the selection of local preserves from Edible B.C., where you’ll find rustic Maple Magic cutting boards to complete the gift.
For the Wine Connoisseur
Every wine lover could use a new decanter. Liberty Wine Merchants carries a sophisticated selection by Riedel and Bohemia. Include a copy of Decanter – and one of the bottles featured in the magazine.
For the Design Lover
The Cross in Yaletown is your one-stop shop for stylish city dwellers no matter what their style. On our wish list: Lifting the Curtain on Design (Vicente Wolf’s new book), a John Derian bottle coaster and a white faceted vase (fill it with flowers from Divine Vines first).
For the Sentimental Entertainer
Help your host relive the party — and read words of appreciation from all the invitees — by showing up with a guestbook from Paper-Ya. A stylish fountain pen is the perfect accompaniment, and you’ll find the city’s finest selection of ink at Perks.
