You’re attending an important get together full of family, food and fun. It could be a wedding, bridal shower, engagement party or just a fun bash. Whether you’re the host and you want to give a gift to attendees or you’re the guest and you’re looking for a hostess gift, something down home will fit right in.
So what gifts go with a down home gathering? Look for items that relate to food or beverages, especially if it helps with entertaining. The best gifts are useful long after the party is over. When it comes to themes, go for items that have a pig or mason jar theme and feature wood, metal or ceramic. Need some inspiration? Check out these gifts that are perfect for a down home gathering.
1. Mason Jar Cheese Board Set
Cheese boards can come in handy when it comes to entertaining. These wooden mason jar-shaped cheese boards are small, which makes them portable and perfect for a picnic. They also come with a wooden spreader. They’re small enough that they’re perfect for a party favor.
2. Metal and Ceramic Cheese Spreader Set
You could skip the board and just give the knives. This cheese spreader set comes with three spreaders featuring metal blades and ceramic handles. They say “Let it Brie,” “Gouda Times,” and “Say Cheese.” Cheese puns are always a good time!
3. Wood Pig Cheese Board Set
This pig-shaped cheese board shows off every prime cut of a pig, sectioned off and numbered. The cheese spreader is even shaped like an adorable little cleaver. The board is made out of sturdy bamboo wood. This is a good gift for someone who loves to barbecue but who hasn’t yet learned the benefits of a good cheese board.
4. “Pig Out” Dip Bowl and Spoon
Maybe you are not a fan of fancy cheeses. What about the dip people in your life? For those who prefer a bag of chips and a bowl of salsa, get them this pig-shaped dip bowl. It’s made of white ceramic and features “Pig Out” at the bottom of the bowl. It also comes with a white ceramic spoon so guests can dish out the dip onto their own appetizer plates.
5. Mason Jar Bottle Opener
Don’t forget about beverages! If you’re hosting the party, hand out these mason jar-shaped bottle openers to each guests. They say “Everything is Better in a Mason Jar,” and we have to agree.
