Are you a hostess with the mostest or the friend who attends the parties? I love to host but I also enjoy showing up to a friend’s house for a get-together. After 18+ months of no formal holiday parties, I’m excited to get together with friends and family this season. Hug their necks tight and squeeze their little ones who are no longer little.
I always like to bring a little something with me as a hostess gift to any function I attend. Perhaps gift-giving is my love language. I will search high and low for a host. It’s not a one-size-fits-all and hosting a party is no small task and I want to get something that will get used.
Top 16 Thoughtful Hostess Gifts
- Vodka Infusion Cocktail Kit – This would be a great hostess gift or even a nice housewarming gift. If someone isn’t a vodka fan, there are whiskey and margarita kits as well.
- Handpainted Stainless Steel Enamel Tumbler – How pretty is this cup. I wouldn’t mind fancying up my water and drinking out of one of these.
- Capri Blue Volcano Candle – This is a scent loved by everyone. Trust me.
- Anthropologie Garden Party Monogram Mug – I love this floral-painted collection. The monogram lettering makes it a perfect personalized gift.
- French Press Coffee Maker – There is a lot of hype over French Press Coffee. It is one of the better cups of coffee you will make at home. You could even add some fun ground coffee to go along with the French Press.
- Hand Blown Stemless Wine Glasses – Wine glasses are always a great go-to gift. The subtle tint of these glasses makes a beautiful gift. You could also pair these with your favorite wine.
