Cottage Hostess Gift

If someone is nice enough to invite you to their cottage for the weekend, you want to be the guest that brings the great hostess gift. And, hopefully when they are inviting again, you’ll be on the top of their list. I started out mine with a great galvanized bucket from Dollarama, and put in a pretty little tea towel too. Next we added some wine and beer, because it’s the cottage! I also picked up a little chocolate, for your peeps with a sweet tooth.

I also added in some of my favourite snacks. I made the homemade crackers, see the recipe here , and they were a real hit ie. how to really impress people and hear things like -you actually made crackers? And, they’re easy to make, just make sure you put them in something air tight, I used some cello bags, and tied it with a little twine. I also included some cheese, fancy mustard, pate, and some fresh fruit. Everything you need for an afternoon of happiness on the dock. 😉

Last but not least, I picked up some really snacky foods, my favourite kettle cooked chips and some peanuts.

I wrapped it up in some clear cellophane and tied it with a little raffia to finish it off.
