Hostess Gift Ideas

The holiday season is here and the endless holiday parties have begun.  Something I always have a hard time coming up with is a really great hostess gift.  I’ve searched online for some great ideas and am sharing them with you!

I love this set of appetizer plates from C. Wonder.  They’re perfect for setting finger foods out at a party or even for individual use at a small dinner party.

This Kate Spade wine bottle opener and wine stopper set are so cute.  A wine bottle is a traditional hostess gift, but the bottle opener and stopper are essential.  This is definitely a gift that will be used time and time again.

A hot dip bowl is not something I would ever think to purchase.  However, when I stumbled across this at Crate and Barrel, I couldn’t help but think what a great idea this was.  The bowl can be used in the microwave or the oven to heat your foods.  The wooden base then insulates the bowl and keeps your food warm, while protecting table surfaces from the heat.  Plus, I love the clean and contemporary design.

When I attend holiday parties, there is usually always one dish that I want the recipe for.  I usually type it up in my phone quickly and there it sits until I remember the dish.  A pretty recipe box, like this one from Rifle Paper Co. at Anthropologie is both cute and useful.

I love coffee table books, Anthropologie and Kate Spade have great selections.  I think they’re a great way to decorate your home and show off your personality and interests.  Be sure to pick a book that you know your host will have an interest in and try to pick one that has color schemes that match the host’s decor.  Lined on book shelves or stacked on a coffee table, these books are easy conversation starters.

Happy holiday party season and Merry Christmas!  I’m always trying to come up with new ideas for hostess gifts.  What are some gifts that you’ve given or received that you have loved?

  1. The recipe box is a great idea! I’ve never thought about that. I got a cheese plate and knife once and thought it was odd, but have used it a lot! I always love a nice candle or something homemade, even cookies or fudge.
