The home made
Home made goodies are the best! And if they’re given away in beautiful packaging, their value increases even further. Andrea has just prepared home made elderflower cordial with her daughter, and the easy recipe is as follows:
“There are many varieties of elderflower cordial, and this recipe I’ve just stolen from a magazine once. You need about 20 heads of elderflower, some citric acid, the juice of 4-5 lemons (the more the merrier after my taste), a litre of boiling water, and half a kilo of sugar (I use a little less because I love it a bit sour). Afterward you leave it to stand in a cool place for a couple of days, and hereafter you strain it and pour it onto beautiful bottles.”
One of Andrea’s absolute favourites is a personal card, where thoughts and love can run freely.
“The best hostess gift is a hand-written card. It’s so rich on presence. Especially if the card is homemade” – Andrea
Instead of the classic bouquet you can seek the alternative and give away something more green. The plant-trend is still upon us and therefore a tiny cactus or a monstera will surely be well received by your hostess.
Is there anything more delicious than a big, lovely, organic basil? There probably is, but we love when guests bring us herbs as they’re both decorative and taste heavenly.
The one that’s free
Many places around the country (at least in Denmark), you can go out and collect your own flower bouquet. They’re often much more beautiful and way more personal than the ones you get at the florist. It’s the gift that’s free of charge, though it’s incredibly valuable for the one receiving it.
