Hostess & Housewarming Gifts

Posted By on Aug 8, 2017

When it comes to gifts, we have something for just about everyone but our housewarming and hostess gift ideas are unique and never-ending! So many scrumptious delicacies imported from Italy, France, as well as thoughtful and meaningful gifts here on the Aves.
Just in: our Mediterranean Olive Bruschetta is made of all natural gluten-free blend of chopped olives, cauliflower, sweet peppers and capers in olive oil. Pair with a fresh baguette, add a kick to grilled fish, pasta, omelets, potato salad or deviled eggs. Not to mention our 100 Days of Scripture set by Anne Neilson Home — for the right person this gift will mean the world and more! Comes with a lucite gift box.

We can’t get enough of Holly Stuart Home’s Dot Coaster sets, comes in an array of colors (you can even get a Mixed Pattern set)!
Made in France, our mini Laguiole spreader is perfect for entertaining at home – dips, spreads, confit. The options are endless! Just in, available in a soft charcoal, soft aqua, or ivory made of high-grade stainless steel accenting and is dishwasher safe.

New Bella Cucina pesto and spreads! Porcini Parmesan Pesto, Piccolo Pomodoro Tomato & Basil, Sweet Pepper Pesto, Artichoke Lemon Pesto, Sundried Tomato Pesto all available in store, imported from Italy!

Adding just the right color and pattern of Caspari cocktail napkins to a gift really adds personality to your gift without adding too much to your total. So many shades and themes to play off of, paired with the perfect spreader and dip, coasters, recipe book or champagne flutes really makes a statement, showing the thoughtfulness and effort that went into picking out your gift.


It can be tricky finding a housewarming gift for that one friend who already has everything, we have one unique gift idea for them! A 2×3 Indoor/Outdoor Rug by Dash and Albert, perfect for in the kitchen, on your back or front porch…so many options! Here are a few of our favorite patterns and shades:


Fresh floral arrangements by Petals and Twigs always makes for a lovely hostess or housewarming gift, something so naturally unique and beautiful will make their day! We restock fresh flowers by Petals and Twigs every Friday morning!

A throw by Sferra or Lands Downunder is another go-to gift idea for celebrating a new household, especially if you are hoping to stay clear of perishables.

Lafco‘s luxurious natural soy candles make the best gift. There is nothing we would want to receive more than a Lafco candle, and for those who aren’t really the candle-burning type, their diffusers are amazing as well. Scents created based on all different types of rooms, fragrances so subtle yet refreshing plus the burn does not release black smoke for a healthier, safer household.



Another Fraiche favorite is a Simon Pearce bud vase! So many styles to choose from, show the personality of your friend or loved one through the style and design.
