Summer Hostess Gift {Handmade + Buy}

A couple of weeks ago some sweet friends had my entire crew over to their home for some swimming, eats and chats. We love meeting with friends + making summer memories; I especially love making up Hostess gifts. I usually include some handmade piece with items bought from the store.

I started with the glass jar from Target; these are great for organizing a pantry, sewing supplies, small toys and more. I use them all the time and they are pretty inexpensive. I have been on a recent dishcloth crocheting obsession, so I used a few of these beauties as a foundation for my hostess gift.

A Mama can never go wrong with some dark chocolate-covered anythings, and EOS lip balm is a favorite around our parts-- they smell SO darn good!

And it all fit in that jar, nice and snug. Happy summer, Dears!
