Even though this is L.A., a hostess never wants the weather to crash her party. This Amymami storm glass in a bottle helps predict the weather and makes a stylish decoration and conversation piece for any home. amazon.com; $32
Present for the plant person
Resist the urge to grab a bouquet of flowers from your local market on the way and have the forethought to go beyond. Like with this this gorgeous Cross Base Terrarium from West Elm. Plus, since being around plants is said to create an instant euphoria, you’ll shoot straight to the top of favorite guest status right at the threshold. westelm.com; $49 and up.

Rather than a bottle of wine, come with something longer lasting in hand. These Webster Wine Glasses from Anthropologie come in four different tinted colored glasses and will be used and enjoyed for so many summer nights to come. anthropologie.com; $48
Present for the sunbather
Giant oversized pool floats are all the rage now–especially those in whimsical shapes and designs like these oversized slices of citrus that hopefully match garnishes of cocktails in hand. Look for these by Swimline or others in shapes like hearts, lips, angel wings, unicorns, butterflies and more. amazon.com; $26
