10 Great Hostess Gifts

13427

Custom and etiquette dictate that you should never show up empty-handed to a party or gathering.  Even if you ask the hostess what you can bring to help and they insist that you don’t need to bring anything at all, you should still bring a little something.

Now that the holidays are near, you’ll probably be attending a few parties before the year is over.  You don’t have to spend a lot of money on hostess gifts this season.  Putting a little thought into them makes all the difference.

Lindt box of chocolates

It’s one of the all-time classic hostess gifts, but there’s a good reason for that.  A good box of chocolates can be shared with the guests or enjoyed later by the hostess.  She’ll appreciate the gesture either way.

“Ugly” sweater wine bottle cover

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with bringing a nice bottle of wine, but for a little something different, how about this adorable wine accessory?  It keeps the bottle insulated and looks festive while doing it.

Cookie tin

The same way a nice box of chocolate makes one of the best hostess gifts, an assortment of gourmet cookies will definitely delight any hostess with a sweet tooth.

Assortment of olive oil

A selection of flavor-infused olive oils is an undeniably classy and unique hostess gift.  Especially for the hostess who loves to cook and eat gourmet food.

Stainless steel bar set

The hostess may already have a bar set for making cocktails for her guests, but who wouldn’t enjoy the convenience of having an extra set on-hand?  No hostess has time to wash her bar tools between every cocktail.

Coffee

If your hostess prefers tea to coffee, you can, of course, substitute accordingly, but this treasure chest full of gourmet coffee is sure to please just about anyone.

Luxury hand soap

Anyone who’s ever had guests over knows that the main bathroom has to look nicer than any other bathroom in the house.  And that means, it has to be stocked with luxury hand soap.  Make sure your hostess has a fresh set for her next shindig.

Monogram coasters

Not only do these coasters look and feel classy, they’ll have a nice personalized touch when they feature your hostess’ initial.  It’ll show that you actually put some thought into the gift instead of just picking something up from the dollar store.
