How To Be The Best Houseguest
The basics of being a good house guest are the same for a dinner party or weekend in the Hamptons: follow house rules, make yourself useful, take wardrobe cues from the hostess and watch for sneaky indoor pets.
But on the top of the list is showing your appreciation and gratitude to the host. Sending a hand-written thank you note and gifting something is of vital importance... and since you can’t settle for just anything, here are some gift ideas that will totally make you- and the host swoon.
Leave something that can be used by subsequent guests like a sun hat or Missoni beach towels for weekend stays at the vacation home.
Fine olive oils always make a sophisticated gift. Olio Ex. Vergine LT1, Imported from Italy. $39, Nest Dallas.
