With summer just around the corner and your calendars jam-packed with travel, don't forget to pack a sweet little something for your hostess in your luggage! This list of hostess gifts will travel well and offer a kind gesture of appreciation, not to mention they are easy to grab from the boutique before you sneak off for a much-needed long weekend away.

1. A Cute Summer Clutch

What says 'Thank You' better than a fun little accessory that is sure to get good use and attention all summer long. A cute summer clutch is a must-have for all your outings and spices up an otherwise dull outfit or mood. Grab this Kelly Clutch in Natural for your sweet hostess with the mostest.

2. A Bottle of Lotion

We all know summer means bare shoulders, knees, and toes! Don't let the summer sun tighten up your otherwise glowing skin. When you grab yourself another bottle of Wild Botanicals Unscented Body Lotion, grab one for your hostess too! Not only will she love your thoughtfulness, she'll love the product too for it's all-natural ingredients!

3. A Handmade Local Candle

If you get that fuzzy feeling when you're shopping at a small business, look no further than Sweetest Stitch to fill your #loyaltolocal heart. We are stocking more than a few local makers and shakers' goodies that not only you, but your hostess too, is sure to love! A favorite amongst our customers is the Farmhouse Candle Co 8 ounce candle. It comes in a variety of scents, but we think the Fresh Linen scent is a perfect hostess gift! For only $12, you can take a little #RVA to wherever you're headed.

4. A Piece of Art

Colorful art has a way of making everyone smile! Small canvases and framed art make great gifts because they are not intrusive to someone's style and taste and can easily find a space to live, even on a nightstand or desk. At Sweetest Stitch, we love to support one our favorite local artists, Amanda Tucker. You can find her flamingo canvases for $75 and acrylic framed fashionistas for $45 right in the shop!
