Party Planning

Thursday, July 21, 2016

Yes, even if you’re the guest! We’re used to gifting at birthdays and house-warming parties, but even someone who is putting a simple dinner together deserves a little love. Pearl Mathias brings you a couple of gifts that they might like

Have you been invited to a party, but want to bring more than a bottle of wine with you? If you haven’t thought about what to get the host yet, you better start planning because showing up empty-handed is okay when it’s your best friend, but we usually wouldn’t advise it! Here are a few hassle-free options for every budget.

Look good in the kitchen
This stylish apron will definitely make your friend look like a professional master chef. Cottonmade, this cute kitchen piece has been printed using azo-free dyes and is 100% bio-degradable.
Price Rs 499

Body basics
For a female host who loves to be pampered, this gentle, exfoliating body scrub has an uplifting blueberry scent and leaves your skin feeling softer and smoother. You could buy a tin of this scrub, or even the whole set — she will definitely appreciate it.
Price Rs 1,756

Go green
This gorgeous scarf from Chumbak will pair perfectly with a sexy top and a pair of denims. You’ll be smiling when you see your hostess sporting this gift at your next luncheon.
Price Rs 748

Opener with a twist
With a flick of its tail, this seahorse will open any bottle in a pinch! Designed by Artisans of India, this is an ideal gift for the host.
Price Rs 249

Your sweet tooth
You can never go wrong with a box of chocolates. Order this quirky gift box (it’s a train car!) lined with rich chocolate that’s ready to melt your host’s taste buds with its exotic flavour.
Price Rs 675

Glam up
Another one for women, this quirky jewellery stand from Chumbak will match any kind of dressing table and add a fun element to your friend’s wardrobe.
Price Rs 1,295

Flowery décor
This beautiful metallic vase from Yuccabe Italia will spruce up a living room in a matter of seconds. You could buy a bunch of carnations and it’ll be ready to use.
Price Rs 879

Shake it off
This wooden light-bulb laden shaker will infuse warmth into your meals. It’s the perfect tableware accessory to add quirkiness to your friend’s dining set.
Price Rs 1,750

Chopping up
Crafted with a beautiful illustration of a peacock, this chopping board is designed to give the kitchen an extra zing.
Price Rs 545

Now that you know what to shop for, have you thought about the no-nos? A few things you should avoid bringing to a party are:

  • Decorative soaps — no one uses them.
  • Plants — they turn into a burden to take care of.
  • Scented candles — they just lie around in a drawer.
  • Religious items — they may be inappropriate.

Travel for work is inevitable and will be well worth your efforts. Writing and correspondence will also take up a lot of your time. There could be some unexpected visitors from out of town. This could interfere with your plans for a leisurely evening doing what you like best.
