Summer’s a time for travel, visits and parties. Make your hosts happy and be a gracious guest by bringing them a gift. Eschew bottles of wine and flowers, and consider one of these cheery hostess gifts instead. They range in price from $5 to $63.
Edible gifts are real pleasers. Jake & Amos’ canned pickles, jellies and salsas are tasty and perfect for summertime giving. They’re sold in homey glass jars that incite smiles.
Pictured is Jake & Amos’ spicy corn salsa ($5 for a 16-ounce jar). It’s thick, peppery and made with five vegetables, including jalapeños. The Freckled Frog gift shop at 14277 Mountain Road in Glen Allen is a great destination for this and other Jake & Amos products.
Your host will win big with this Texas Hold ‘Em poker set ($63). It’s made by Ridley’s Games Room and sold at Mongrel in Carytown. Its bold graphic box makes it super stylish and perfect for leaving out all the time.
