‘Tis the summer gifting season for weddings, graduation, and family parties! With these festivities in mind, here are our top  picks elegant and whimsical gifts to start your summer gifting season off!

Hosting a bridal shower or graduation party? Add a few clever touches to your party with our ‘Holy Guacamole’ serving dish or the ‘Hummus for some of us’ bowl. Make it a gift set for the happy couple to be, or gift them to a friend at her housewarming party. Also, we have to mention, this Black Bean Hummus recipe is to die for, and this Tapenade recipe is party tested, Whickerbill approved.

Looking for a gift that will last a lifetime? Look no further! We can’t say enough about Badash Crystal vases and serving bowls. Each piece is”handcut” crystal, which means each item is held against a spinning stone to “cut” the design. It is truly artistic workmanship at its best. This elegant work is made by the same artisans that produce Mikasa, Waterford, Lenox, and Sasaki. These are one-of-a-kind statement pieces for the home.


Needing something a little more whimsical and functional? We love both! Our shelves are stocked with colorful oven mitts, and dish and hand towels. Spruce up and brighten anyone’s kitchen with a matching set of mitts and towels, or mix and match for a truly eclectic gift. What a great way to send your newly graduated loved ones off into the “real world” than with their first set of kitchen essentials.
