In my family I am known for being quite the gift giver. I really pride myself on finding unique items that the gift receiver didn’t even realize they wanted. So, gift guides are one of my favorite things to do! I’m always so excited to share my amazing finds! Since so many of us are going to be adding holiday parties in the near future I wanted to start with hostess gifts. The best part is these gifts also work nicely for anyone on your holiday gift list.
No. 1 I love nothing better receiving a gift that is monogrammed! It’s something special and not many people do it for themselves so, it’s nice to give it as a gift. Plus it shows that you took the time to think ahead and not grab something last minute. I love thisginger jar version. What to zhush up your gift even further? Add this chic napkin holder.
No. 2 Obsessed with this personalized galvanized bucket! It can hold up to 24 beers, but you could also use to house juice boxes, wine, water bottles, etc! It would be great for parties! Also you can personalize up to 12 letters per line and you can fill up to three lines. Best part? It’s less than $25!
No. 3 Some form of alcohol is always a favorite hostess gift. Why not add a little something, something with it like this elephant bottle opener. Would be so nice paired with a unique beer or cider.
No. 4 Hostess is exhausting. Why not give your hostess a little something to help he or she relax after the party like this petite floral oil diffuser. It comes with a bottle of essential oil, but you could also add your own blend if you have a favorite mix.
No. 5 A candle is also a pretty classic hostess gift, but make it special by picking out a candle that can also double as a chic home decor accessory like this pineapple covered candle for only $9.99 and available in white, gold and silver! Pair it with stylish matches and you are good to go.
No. 6 Since I love color so much I always like to give gifts that inject a little color as well. I find that so many people are scared of color, but when they give it a try they end up loving it. So, why not help them along the way. How adorable are these colorful otomi inspired coasters. I love the pattern and a set of 4 is less than $10!
No. 7 Flowers are always a great hostess gift and how amazing is this floral vase to pair it with. I love the handpainted look of the piece. It looks fancier than the $22 it costs.
No. 8 Is this glitter acrylic tray not the best thing ever? I’m obsessed. It would make any bar cart very happy!
No. 9 If you can fall in love with an ice bucket then I’m totally in love with this one. It’s classic looking but the hardware is nicely updated. Yet, it’s simple enough to fit into anyone’s home decor style.
No. 11 Throws are my go to for grab bags. I think everyone can always use something cozy to throw over a chair, etc. Love this gray greek key throw and it’s less than $20!
No. 12 Pineapples are a symbol of warm, welcome and hospitality, which is why I love to give pineapple items for hostess gifts. I found this cute pineapple pot holder set from Minted.
No. 13 Instead of going full on monogram you can always just get something with an initial like these colorful mugs and pair it with your favorite coffee beans or this battery operated milk frother, which my mom swears by. It’s a nice way to dress up a cup of plain jane coffee.
What are your favorite hostess gifts? Anything I should be on the look out for?
