Host: Finding that perfect gift for a hostess of a party can be pretty difficult especially when you want to make it special, very unique. Lifestyle expert, Mar Jennings shows Rhianne great last minute ideas that are perfect for any host. Rhianne: With all those holiday parties coming up, we need hostess gifts. Mar, help. Mar: Yes we do, we need to have access and a supply available so I love to have a closet that’s filled with little gifts that at any time I can pull from and give it to someone. Rhianne: Because you’re always invited to those last minute parties. Mar: Absolutely so you want to be prepared. Now, if you want to think about a great gift, here are a couple of really wonderful ideas and let’s go ahead and start with the oversized picture book. Now you might not have my book or written a book but you can certainly give my book but let’s say they love dogs. Here’s another great oversized picture book. Just make it personalized and find a book that is really something that they would enjoy. Another— Rhianne: The next one I love this one, these are candles. Mar: Wonderful candles, any kind of natural candle because the oils are that much more powerful and it’s just a really wonderful gift. Rhianne: So what’s up with the soaps. Mar: Soaps. Okay, listen, you’re not just giving a bar of soap. You’re going to give an organic natural soap and once you introduce someone to a great soap, they will never go back. So giving a beautiful bar of soap that’s natural and organic, way to go. Rhianne: So if you get a bar of soap that doesn’t mean that you stink. Mar: It’s not an insult. It’s just that we want to introduce you to something that’s really amazing. Another great gift is olive oil. People love to cook. Rhianne: Everyone uses it. Mar: Everyone uses it. But when you go to these olive stores, the prices, a lot of times, the labels get stuck or they’re hard to remove and just giving a gift because the price is off is not good enough. You want to make sure. Here’s a great product, Goof Off, it takes all the label off completely and that way, you don’t even see it was there. So olive oil and making sure whatever you give, you take the complete label off. Rhianne: Now, a lot of families have dogs. Mar: A lot of people have dogs and pets. Why not get them a gift. I love when people show up with something for Violet. So whether it be a wonderful bowl, whether it be a bone or a little toy or go ahead and personalize a box for them. Here’s a great little personalized note. Just make it personal. It goes a long way. And this is not about spending a lot of money. This is about really spending some time on the gift. Now, we’re going to the grocery store. We’re buying food right? While we’re there, it’s a great resource. Let’s go ahead. There’s paper ___ already blooming flowering stuff in your grocery store. The key is just to simply upgrade it and put it in a beautiful container and that really speaks like I’ve taken more time. Now, here’s a great idea as well is that I’ve taken a metallic pen and I can write a little note on the terracotta when I transplanted it so this one says here, my love is growing with you everyday. Right? Great idea. Rhianne: What if you want to bake cookies or make some food? Mar: Great, I love when people do that but what ends up happening is I have a collection of plates and I don’t know whose plate they are. So go ahead and use a permanent market and put your name on the back of the plate. That will guarantee that you get the plate back and even if it’s washed, the only way that comes off is if you have to scrub it. It’s a great way to get your plate back. Rhianne: Because no one wants those random plates. Now, a bottle of wine, a great gift always. Mar: Always a great gift. Rhianne: Dress it up with a little decoration. Mar: Bouquet. A wonderful beautiful bouquet steps up a whole bottle of wine. If you want to make sure that you have your recipient enjoy the bottle of wine right on the label, put their name on it, enjoy. Love and kisses because no one will regift a bottle of wine that’s addressed directly to you. Especially if you’re spending time to really find a bottle of wine that they will enjoy. That guarantees, they don’t just grab it and go. Rhianne: Even if you’re not, you just don’t want them to regift it. Right on the label there. Also on your website, you have a wine bouquet step by step guide. Mar: How to do this. Rhianne: We’ll put a link on our website bettertv.com. Thank you so much Mar. Mar: My pleasure. Rhianne: I’m keeping this. Mar: Yes you are. Rhianne: Let’s go have a— Host: And now, Better’s got a gift for you.
