• Think Spring for Your Next Goodie Bag

Event bags are always a hit with guests. And while most parties can’t live up to the standard of celebrity gift bags (This year’s Academy Award gift bags included $20,000 worth of merchandise featuring a private dinner party at Morton’s steakhouse and a pair of Beamer Video Phones), us ‘regular people’ can have just as much fun with gifts for our guests. Themed bags are a consistently good idea, and we have just the thing for your upcoming spring soiree.

Spring weather can be so unpredictable. One minute it’s blue skies, the next it’s downpouring. The simple fix is an umbrella that can be easily stuffed into a purse or bag. Guests will love the gift’s utility, and the best part is the unlimited amount of designs you can pick from to match the theme of your spring soiree

We love this contemporary and effortlessly simple design by pare*umbrella.

Sunglasses are a must for spring when sunshine is finally starting to grace us with its presence. But it’s likely that most people already own a pair. Take a unique approach and pick one guests will get a kick out of.

These are perfect for spring with their floral arms, and these are a fun retro take on regular ol’ shades.

And speaking of sunshine, it’s time to start thinking skin protection. Throw in a mini sunscreen to show your guests you care. You can even personalize bottles for more fun.

Spring is the time for flora to bloom. Let guests create their own beautiful garden with flower seeds. For us, sunflowers seem to be the most fun, but anything that will brighten up a yard is sure to be a hit.

What spring-themed gifts do you think we missed? 

The travel season is here and while Idaho Tourism (Visit Idaho) celebrates the uptick in tourism, the bureau also has a message for visitors: Travel With Care. That’s the tagline of a new campaign that emphasizes the importance of caring for yourself, caring for others and caring for Idaho to preserve the opportunities for adventure in the Gem State for years to come. 

 

The perfect holiday gift is beautiful, unique and filled with wonder. Gastro Obscura: A Food Adventurer's Guide is all of these things and more: a travel-lover’s delight with enough offbeat facts about food to spark countless conversations at the next cocktail party or event.

 

Because many of our colleagues are caffeinated enough during these stressful months, why not gift them a gentler, kinder holiday beverage? The Warming Joy 2021 holiday collections from Tea Forté, a company offering handcrafted luxury tea blends that are served at some of the  finest hotels across the country and sold at retailers like Paddington Station in Ashland, OR, and Knack in Seattle, features a combination of black, green and herbal teas. The gift sets include seasonal favorites like raspberry ganache, sweet orange spice, cherry marzipan, harvest apple spice and winter chai.
