Rifle Paper Co. Recipe Tin

We're not sure which Southerners have a better knack for: entertaining or giving thanks to those who do. When we're not throwing cousin Anna Kate a bridal shower to put the rest of the town to shame, we're writing her a thank-you note for returning the favor for whichever of life's events has presented the opportunity. What can we say? It's simply the circle of Southern life. However, while a well-timed thank-you note is always appreciated (if not expected), there are certain occasions that call for a little something special to remark upon your hostess's unwavering dedication to the cause of your Southern soirée. Whether it be a bridal shower, baby shower, or anything in between (because Lord knows we can make up an excuse to throw a party), we have a few fabulous ideas for hostess gifts to properly express your thanks. While we can't exactly knock a pretty bottle of rosé as an expression of gratitude, these thoughtful gifts are certain to leave a more lasting impression while perched in the home of your gracious hostess.
