If you’re fortunate enough to have friends and family who invite you to lobster dinners at beach houses, or to stay at summer homes with lush aromatic gardens, offer heartfelt thanks with one of these time-tested purveyors of great thank you gifts.
New Yorkers have loved Kiehls since its inception in 1851, and the feeling seems to be mutual. Kiehls Gifts For Family are offered in seven scent variations: Crème de Corps in original, a Lavender-infused collection, delicious Vanilla, uplifting Grapefruit, Mango-Licious, Coconuts About you and Pear Tree Corner. Any one of these gift sets would be a memorable way to say thanks – and ensure that you’re invited back. Choose your favorite set at http://www.kiehls.com
Jo Malone luxury candles are another way to have your gratitude linger beautifully for months to come. Available in amber & sweet orange, grapefruit, vintage gardenia, lime basil and mandarin, pomegranate noir and orange blossom, Jo Malone candles are elegant, distinctive and useful. Colognes such as Nutmeg & Ginger and Lime Blossom can be shared and loved by hostesses and hosts alike. The Lime Blossom Cologne is especially ideal for summer weather, and won’t soon be forgotten.

You can custom-design your gift at their site, or choose the Gardener’s 60-Second Manicure Kit, a La Source set, Aromatherapy kit, or any of the distinctive Crabtree & Evelyn fragrance sets, such as Nantucket Briar, India Hicks, Lily of the Valley, and Summer Hill. Men’s fragrances are an option if your gift can be geared to guys. Browse the site at http://www.crabtree-evelyn.com.
May your summer be filled with blue skies and plenty of people you love to have around.
