Gift Guide: For the Hostess

We all have that friend or family member who loves to play hostess. And thank goodness! Who doesn’t love going to a good party?? I really enjoy entertaining so this is a gift guide I always look forward to making because it’s part gift guide, part wishlist. One hostessing item in particular I’ve had my eye on for a while is a long wooden cheeseboard. I also mentioned wanting one in this post about my Black Friday shopping list, so someone take the hint lol!

Of course nothing is better than cheese, unless you have a crusty baguette to go with it. So if your hostess already has a cheeseboard, consider this chic bread dish. If you just need a small gift to bring as an actual hostess gift {versus a legit holiday gift for someone who loves to entertain} one of my favorite edible hostess gifts to give is a really nice jar of jam and freshly baked bread. That way they have something yummy to look forward to in the morning after all their hard work! Or an oil dipping set if they prefer savory to sweet.

She probably already has a million cookbooks {like me oops!} so I thought a manual for making an amazing cup of coffee would be appreciated for impressing during after dinner drinks and desserts. My friend Amanda raved about this book in particular!

For the glam entertainer, an antique inspired silver wine cooling bucket will make their bar cart look extra posh. As will a metallic tray they can serve food and drinks on or custom golden coasters with their initials on them. I thought I would include a few fun, less on the nose gift ideas for your favorite entertainer. This beautiful photo album would be perfect for showing off their vacation photos during their next cocktail party. And this energy cleansing kit could come in handy before a party. Or after, depending on how the night goes!
