Hostess gift ideas

Wednesday, December 6, 2017

This time of year is all about family and friends and fellowship. There are Christmas parties and secret santa parties and cookie exchange parties. My mom always taught me to never go to a party empty handed and I think that is a great rule of thumb. It is always so hard to figure out what to take a hostess. I usually stick with a bottle of champagne or a nice candle but I am going to try to be better about taking unique gifts that show thought and appreciation. I have rounded up my favorite hostess gifts (or gifts for anyone!) so that the next few weekends you don't have to show up to a Christmas party empty handed.

This marble and wood serving board would make for the most beautiful charcuterie board for a Christmas party.

I love to keep pretty soap in my guest bathroom and this Jo Malone soap would present so well as a gift.

We were gifted this glass alphabet ornament when we got engaged and to this day it is one of my favorite ornaments. Personalized gifts like this present so nicely.

This Holiday Cookies Cookbook is so cute and everyone is always looking for new cookies to bake around Christmas time.

This pineapple shot glass would be so cute on a bar cart or in a wet bar area.

This festive drinkware is adorable. Throw some hershey kisses in it and it would make for the perfect gift.

Throw a bottle of prosecco in this fur wine bag and I guarantee any hostess will be impressed.

The perfect ornament for all southern ladies.

Again, a personalized gift shows that you put thought into it. This monogram bottle stopper would be used constantly in our house!

These diffusers smell so good and you won't have to worry about minis burning themselves or catching the house on fire.

Throw a festive bow on these marble coasters or pair them with a bottle of wine.

This plaid dish towel wrapped around a bottle of wine would be so cute!

This copper and stainless steel bar set is a super nice gift if the hostess likes a cocktail every now and then.
