Hostess Gifts for Fourth of July & Summer

These fun stripped paper straws are affordable and are a great gift. Pair them with your favorite drink mix and a pitcher and you have a great gift. Kikkerland makes the blue and white stripes and for other amazing straw designs (including stars and polka dots) check out The Sugar Diva.

If you enjoy baking, try these mini pies. They make a nice homemade hostess gift too.
Pillsbury makes an unroll pie crust. Cut out your mini dough crust shapes that fit in a mini muffin pan and use your favorite apple pie recipe to make a yummy treat.

I like a good gadget. This festive ANT watermelon holder, from Terry's Village, is adorable and sure to spark conversation at your next bash. Just add the watermelon and it makes a great affordable gift!
