11 Beauty Hostess Gift Ideas for Every Summer Occasion
Hosting a summer soirée is a big job, but somebody has to do it, right? That’s why it’s always lovely when guests show their appreciation for their hostess with a thoughtful gift. And if that present also includes pampering her like the queen that she is, all the better. While she’s racing around organizing food, seating, and ambiance to make all her guests feel welcome, give her a gift that’s just for her. Here, we share 11 of our favorite beauty sets.
1. Supergoop! Day To Day SPF 30+ Set ($45): Outdoor barbecues and beach parties have one important thing in common: SPF. Give your hostess the best tools to stay fresh and sunburn-free with this health-conscious set.
2. Philosophy Pure Grace Endless Summer Set ($54): Pamper her with a refreshing perfume and lotion set that will be a forever reminder of the sun-soaked season.
3. Molton Brown Vetiver and Grapefruit Body Wash & Lotion Set ($74): After the dishes are clean and the dinner guests are gone, give your hostess with the mostest the relaxation she deserves with this brightly scented grapefruit and vetiver set.
4. Space NK “Best of Space NK: Icons Edit” ($99): Summer is a wonderful time for a fancy dinner party under the stars. Your hostess will love feeling like a celebrity icon when she unwinds with this beauty set, complete with a colorful lip balm, mascara, nail color, and some treats for her after-party routine.
5. Susanne Kaufmann Flight Kit ($112): Jet-setting for a weekend getaway is the quintessential summer retreat. But your hostess doesn’t want to stuff her bag with tons of toiletries. Instead, give her a set that addresses all her beauty needs while on the go.
6. Kopari Slip Into Summer Set ($28): Sunny beach parties are an excellent way to spend a weekend, but they can wreak havoc on your hostess’ skin. After all, she has more important things to think about, like keeping her guests entertained, than to cater to her own skin care needs. But luckily, you’re there to make sure she feels like a shimmering sea queen once the guests are gone.
7. Sephora Favorites Summer Hair Saviors ($38): Your hostess’ hair will shine when she uses these best-selling products from Sephora. Plus, there’s a product for every occasion, like sea spray for beach parties and a humidity spray for outdoor hangouts on muggy days.
8. Sabon Summer Day Perfect Bath Kit ($111): It’s clear that your friend could use some R&R after a whole night of being the best hostess she can be. Now she can relax and soak in the ultimate bath with products that feel like they’re straight from the spa.
9. This Works Dream Big Set ($134): A good night’s sleep is the best gift you can give to any busy hostess. After a whole night of planning and partying, she can drift off to dreamland regardless of whether all the post-party cleaning is complete.
10. Clinique Treats To Go Set in Punch ($18): Your friend will always appreciate it when you bring a little something for her when she opens up her home, even if it’s a casual backyard barbecue. This compact set may be small, but it contains some luxe beauty products that are just right for summer.
11. Georgette Klinger Three Piece Skin Care Kit ($28): Weekends by the shore are all the more relaxing when your hostess has some indulgent skincare in her arsenal.
