With the Holiday season starting and all the invites flowing in, we put all of our faith in Kate Spade’s hands. In her latest book, she gives us a few tips on being the perfect guest. One of the first phases to achieve this is to find the right gift for your hosts.  So we are sharing 7 bullet points of lovely gifts the hosts will always be happy to receive.

Gifts that always work

1 Beautifully packaged French soaps
2 A bottle of rosé champagne, St-Germain or artisanal lemonade
3 A vintage copy of Elsa Schiaparelli’s Shocking Life, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, I Married Adventure by Osa Johnson, Beaton in the Sixties
or Patti Smith’s Just Kids
4 Elevated versions of everyday basics: olive oil, balsamic vinegar and the like
5 A chic cake stand or plate piled with local treats (ours would include a scrumptious mille crêpe cake from Lady M or cookies by Meli & Angi)
6 A deck of gilded playing cards
7 A homemade dessert or canned delight (jam, tomato sauce) with ingredients from your local market
