Flowers or a plant (with longevity)
This gift for a dinner party is nothing groundbreaking, but it’s worth pointing out some botanical gifts are superior to others.
We’re sure you’re accustomed to grabbing a cheap and cheerful bouquet of flowers at the local shop, and although this gift will be welcome, they’re destined for the bin within a few days.
A better option is something with longevity – a dinner party gift that the host can enjoy for a long time to come, such as a dried flower bouquet.
Dried flowers can last one to two years when kept in the right conditions. There are tons of styles available, from classy neutral arrangements to super bright dyed bunches, so you can pick a bouquet that reflects your host’s personality to a tee.
Or if the host isn’t much of a flower lover, opt for an easy-to-care-for plant, such as a spider plant, cactus or money plant. You could even help get them started with their own cocktail herb garden by gifting them a trio of mint, lavender, and basil.
Plants look great in all homes and will be a welcome dinner party gift, especially if you pair it with an attractive pot. Bonus points if you can provide your guest with some simple instructions on how to take care of their new botanical baby.
