Summer is definitely the time for weekend getaways at other peoples' homes, but while most house guests feel a-okay giving their host a set of place mats and a nice Cabernet, Vogue has other ideas about what's appropriate. Endless Summer, the movie, for example, or a bespoke Vintage Dhurrie covered trunk (price upon request). And if they don't like those, you can always give them $1,250 worth of gardening tools. [Vogue]
