Top 5 Gift Ideas for Thoughtful Hostess Gifts

A gift for your hostess doesn't need to be extravagant, but a little creativity does go a long way toward making this present surprising and special.

1. Cookbook/ Book:
Try selecting a cookbook geared towards his/her interests. They might also enjoy a book on party planning, home d├ęcor, or even a guest book.

2. A Bottle of Wine/ Wine Charms:
Jazz it up a little bit and wrap your wine bottle with tissue paper and tie it with a ribbon. Another popular way of presenting wine is in a gift basket. Load it up with cheese or fruit in addition to the bottle of wine.

3. Gift Cards/Certificates:
If you don't know your hostess' favorite shop, a grocery store, liquor store and/or home improvement store certificate is a great solution.

4. Flowers:
Choose your favorite arrangement and put them in a vase. The hostess won't have time to cut the stems and prepare them herself.

5. Chocolates/ Sweets:
Can't go wrong here! For the hostess who loves sweets, a candy basket or a chocolate basket full of all these goodies is a perfect treat.

Jessica Ricci – Inspiration to Creation
Jessica Ricci hails from Providence -- in Rhode Island, of course. She studied English literature at Holy Cross College in Worcester, Massachusetts, and after graduating Ricci moved to Montana where she volunteered for an emergency services organization and began her first hand-made jewelry line of simple beaded necklaces.

Eventually Ricci made her way back to Rhode Island where she worked for a small local newspaper. She received her graduate degree from New York University's school of journalism, and worked for several publications during and after her studies.

In 2001, Ricci decided to move to Italy and pursue her interests in writing and creating jewelry and it was in Rome where she became serious about making and designing jewelry. Ricci’s simple hand-crafted designs are anchored in symbolism, history, and sentimentality, and bring together her love of travel, jewelry and cultural significance, researched and experienced firsthand to relay something original and real.

Upon her return to the States in 2005, Ricci officially founded JL Ricci Designs, and today she creates and produces the Raw Jewelry and Market 2 Market collections.
