If you have a friend or family member who loves to entertain, or if you're headed to a party this holiday season and don't want to turn up empty handed, I've got the perfect gift idea for you: Bring them a copy of Apartment Therapy's new book, Complete + Happy Home. It's full of beautiful photos and brilliant advice that anybody would love, but there's three big reasons that make it an especially thoughtful gift for hosts and hostesses...
1. They can learn to maximize their party flow.
The first section of the book is all about setting up your home. Within it, your giftee will find "The Good Flow Guide"–a cheat sheet to creating hardworking entertaining spaces, with serviceable tips for making sure every room has great movement, no matter the square footage.
2. There's a whole chapter on eating spaces.
And a second one on kitchens, which we all know are the heart of a party. Your friends who like to entertain will love paging through the big, full-color photos of some of our favorite real homes. The photos are all exclusive to Complete + Happy Home, so you'll know it's something they've never seen before.
3. It's a great resource for treating day-after stains.
Lest you think Complete + Happy Home is all about pretty pictures, I'll let you know that the third section of the book is all about maintaining your space. Frequent hosts will want to bookmark the "Good-Bye Stains" cheat sheet, so they have an easy reference–right on the coffee table!–for treating the occasional red wine or coffee spill.
