With just one more weekend before the Christmas holiday, soiree season is in full swing in Baltimore. That means it’s time to stock up on hostess gifts.
Stylish hostesses are always impressed by gifts that are just a little different. At The Little Shoebox in Ruxton, the selection of party-ready presents is so appealing you might be tempted to buy some for yourself.
Capture the attention of a food-loving host with a cookbook – such as Audrey at Home, by Audrey Hepburn’s daughter Luca Dotti or award-winning author Maria Speck’s Simply Ancient Grains, featuring whole grain recipes for living well. Both books are as attractive as they are interesting.
Avid entertainers won’t be able to resist Lunares Home’s sweet bowls with brightly colored interiors and metal accents. They’re perfect for nuts or small snacks, or just to add a little fun to the tabletop.
Or choose a heavy marble cheeseboard (with or without an accompanying cheese or two). With classic lines, the shop’s boards, by Chicago company Shiraleah are functional but also gorgeous enough to keep on the counter all the time.
Finally, help fragrance lovers indulge with the gift of a scented candle – we love the French vanilla and Japanese quince scents. The candles themselves are lovely, but even the pretty boxes are gifts unto themselves.
They’re so cute, in fact, you may want to pick up a few.
To shop these gifts and more, visit The Little Shoebox at 7625 Bellona Avenue in Ruxton. For more information, call 410-825-3191 or visit The Little Shoebox Facebook page.
