The Perfect Summer Hostess Gifts

Summer is all about beach houses, cottages, and weekend getaways! Chances are you’ll be spending lots of time at someone else’s home and while it’s tacky to show up empty handed, you also don’t want to show up with the wrong gift! These gifts are sure to get you an invite back.

1. For men, a nice bottle of booze they probably haven’t tried…
Inspired by Côte d’Azur’s famously indulgent, glamorous lifestyle Côte d’Azur, Allaire luxury spirits are an opulent trifecta of quality, elegance, and uniqueness.
Vodka: Unequaled flavors and aromas originate from Allaire’s choice of select grains grown in the heart of the polish plains. Their crafting methods, distilling it six times and then filtering it five times, gives it outstanding purity, clarity and shine. The complete process tops up its elegant taste.
Tequila:   The premium tequila is made with 100% select blue weber agave that were slowly cooked to give a Tequilaperfect balance of sweetness. Made in small batches and crafted free of any additives to respect its true essence. Aged in bourbon casks and filtered with an innovative process to give it a smooth agave flavor and characteristic crystal tone.Rum
Rum:   Rum from Barbados is considered by many the archetype to be taken as a reference point for others. Allaire’s rum is the ultimate representation of excellence from the island. Aged for a minimum of 3 years in oak barrels and filtered with their proprietary method that gives it a beautiful crystal tone and enhances the sensory richness.
If you can’t choose just one, have a  Ménage a Trois, which features a collection of Allaire’s premium Vodka, Tequila, and Rum.

Perfect for parties or just to start the weekend right, Beeropoly invites players to quaff their way through a series of beer challenges- from a rhyming competition to demonstrating their best dance moves. Players take turns rolling the dice (included) and moving their bottle cap pieces around the handsome pine wood board. They complete the beer challenges along the way and risk elimination. The last man or woman standing must drink the Community Cup. Cheers!
