With Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner {literally!}, it’s time to start thinking of gifts for your hosts and hostesses. Putting on a dinner or party is a lot of work and it’s a kind gesture to bring a gift to your host, no matter how small. Sometimes I get stuck on gifts such as these because it can all depend on how well you know the person hosting and how much you are willing to spend. I’ve curated a selection of gifts anywhere from $5-150. Sure a bottle of wine is always nice, but when thinking of a hostess gift, I like to pick an item that would make a great addition to the person’s home. There are a million and one things to choose from and so I have done some of the work for you. Worst case scenario, you can never go wrong with a festive wreath or a beautiful throw! Here’s my gift guide for the hostess with the mostest!

Gift Guide: Hostess with the Mostest

Some really easy go-to gifts I resort to are gifts under $20. These are great for a casual party where you want to bring something other than flowers or a bottle of wine. I’m especially loving the idea of giving this faux pine wreath at a party and it’s only $10! Another affordable gift idea is this Gather napkin ring. You can get each one for $3!

Other gift ideas include some really good coffee or these individual hot cocoa sticks.  A mug set for the holidays would be another one I’m sure they’d love! These kinds of gifts are easy to get last minute, and you can also stock up on a few if you need too!

If the hostess with the mostest is one of your close friends, or if you’re attending a more formal dinner party, you may want to invest more thought into your gift, and spend a little bit more. Entertaining pieces, like these agate servers, a serving board, or fun glassware, would seriously be loved! You can also never go wrong with Anthropologie throws like this one or this one! So cozy!

And while home items are always nice, sometimes I think treating the hostess with something for her is really thoughtful. After all, she’s been the one busting her butt off all night/day/week prepping for this dinner/party! Maybe you could give her a jewelry trinket dish or a luxe cashmere eye mask.

And if you’re crafty, some of my favorite homemade gifts include homemade granola, shortbread cookies, or even cocktail napkins {the easiest sewing project and you can pick out whichever fabric you want!}.

I hope this Hostess with the Mostest gift guide helps. I’d love to know what you end up choosing or any other suggestions you have. And since this post kind of touches on wine, I’d love to know your go-to! The other day I tried this red wine from Coppola and it was so good!
