Yellow Stripe

Yellow Stripe

It’s that time again, when everyone will be heading to the beach or the lake (if you’re not scared of them like I am) for the summer.   If you A) are lucky enough to have friends and family like ours who will let you crash at their vacation home, and B) have a mother who taught you never to go to someone’s house empty-handed, then you are always looking for things to bring as hostess gifts.   Of course there are the old standbys:  beer, wine, cookies, and candy.  But if you want something different, may we suggest a set of personalized note cards.  Our Beach Towel Stripe is a perfect summer style, and something with their name on it shows you care!  Choose one of four bright color combos, or get a multi-colored mix.

Here are some other Etsy finds that would make hostess gifts this summer…
