How To Say “Thank You” With Hostess Gifts That Aren’t Boring
Gifts For The Hostess
Do you have holiday parties to attend this year but don’t want to show up empty-handed? The season for get-togethers and celebrations is nearly upon us and I love to thank the hostess of any size gathering with a little something special. Having a few hostess gifts handy for those inevitable invites is, as Martha Stewart would say, “A good thing”. Why not consider something unique and different? These hostess gift picks say “thank you” in a thoughtful and creative way, without being boring or expected. Sure– you can always grab a bottle of wine or flowers to bring along, but, haven’t we all been there and done that? These gifts would also be great for a neighbor, coworker, teacher, friend…

These agate coasters would make a gorgeous gift--the kind of item you might not spoil yourself with, but you’d be THRILLED to receive.
I usually grab a set of 4 holiday plates each season and then use them for baked goods or cookies that I either bring to a party or deliver to neighbors/friends. This is a set of 4 so really, 4 gifts in one!
William Sonoma makes the best kitchen towels. They last forever and wash really well. You could wrap one around a bottle of wine and add a ribbon for a hostess gift. They have several holiday options (linked a few here!) and this set of 2 has you covered for 2 parties! So, if you are going to bring wine, why not wrap it up in this useful way?
Such a gorgeous set for someone that loves games. It includes 2 decks of cards and 5 dice and would look elegant on a coffee table. Again, one of those gifts you might never buy for yourself, but you’d love to receive!
Every hostess spends a good amount of time the morning after a gathering cleaning up and washing dishes which is why this is a REALLY thoughtful gift. You can either bake them ahead OR just bring them uncooked and your host can throw them in the oven the next morning. A warm, gooey, cinnamon roll with coffee or tea is a real treat!
