Host & Hostess Gift Ideas

Don’t show up empty-handed at the party! Grab one of these beautiful gifts to thank and appreciate your host or hostess!

The Gift of Gathering

I can’t imagine a more perfect (or beautiful) book than this coffee table book dedicated to welcoming and celebrating your friends and family! It’s the perfect gift for a host or hostess!

A Yummy Candle

These delicious and perfectly scented candles are perfect for any host or hostess. He or she can burn this winter white candle until Spring! Add a wick trimmer for just a few dollars more. They really do help the candles burn cleaner and longer!

Plaid Tea Towels

This set of plaid tea towels has a cute, traditional look for the kitchen and perfect pop of color for the holidays. You can even get them monogrammed! Or get a simple striped towel if that’s more of the hostess’ style!

Faux Potted Plant

This mini faux frosted pine tree is a beautiful faux plant that looks real but doesn’t have any of the maintenance to keep it alive. This faux poinsettia plant is adorable and would be another great option!

Corkcicle “Chill and Pour” Wine Chiller and Aerator

I’m putting this cork wine chiller on my Christmas list because it keeps your wines chilled at the perfect temperature! And you don’t have to remove it to pour the wine! Add to a bottle of wine to make a spectacular hostess gift.

A Pretty Match Holder

I love to gift a pretty match holder with a candle. In fact, I’m giving that along with a gift card to my kids’ teachers this year. But it’s the perfect combo gift for a host or hostess, too!

Candle Snuffer & Trimmer Set

If you love to give candles, why not give a wick trimmer and candle snuffer, too? This set is really affordable and you get both!

Holly Monogrammed Mug

This monogram mug is oh so cute if you fill it with a cute wrapped hot cocoa or coffee for your host! Find my hot chocolate recipe here.

Alphabet Wood Cheese Board

One thing that I love to bring over during the holidays is a charcuterie cheese spread on a gorgeous wooden board and leave the board for the hostess. It’s a wonderful gift that is also your serving piece for the event! This monogrammed cutting board is monogrammed and a wonderful price for less than $30!

Soap & Lotion Set

How lovely is this gift set with soap and lotion? It’s perfect for the hostess who likes to have overnight guests since this would be perfect in a guest bath or bedroom! If you want a less expensive soap and lotion set, this is a great one!

Wood Cheese & Charcuterie Boards

Another option for a cheese board is this wooden one for the classic host! Such a great deal for 2 boards for only $59!

Cheese Knife Set

This knife set would pair perfectly with either one of the cheese boards! These are a beautiful, heavy stalls steel set with a gold plating.

Marble Tray

This marble tray is beautiful and sophisticated and would be perfect to put some hand made soap like this homemade rosemary and mint soap. Make a batch of soap and add several to the tray, put the top on, and tie with a ribbon. Or fill it with soap pump dispensers. Perfect gift!

The Softest Socks Ever

Have you tried these dreamy socks? If you have you know how AMAZING they are! For $15 these are the perfect gift!

Cozy Slippers

If you are looking for high quality slippers as a gift, these are wonderful, cozy and still under the $40 price point. Love them!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing. Great tips! I’m planning to go to my sister’s housewarming party as she bought a new house in Pickering. I think I will buy this cheese knife set and wood cheese board as it’s a must for wine and cheese evenings. Since my sister is a cheese lover, she would definitely enjoy this present.
