13 Gift Ideas for Your Host This Summer. Because You're No Slob.

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Summer keeps us the best kind of busy with weddings, BBQs, long weekends, and family vacations. To say "thank you" for all the hospitality we're shown, we like to give our hosts a little sumthin' sumthin' that's both practical and fun. Pro tip: Look to each host's personality for clues as to what they will not only like, but get a lot of use out of. From Jonathan Adler's colorful home accents, to Target's collection of life-sized light-up palm trees, or Mark & Graham's monogrammed leather coasters, there's something for everyone in the gallery above. —Cleo Zancope
