50 ideas for The Best Hostess Gifts for 2019!
The only thing I love more than receiving a hostess gift is bringing one to someone else! Even when it is a joy for your host to have you, there is no denying how much hard work goes in on the part of the host or hostess to have people over and entertain and feed them. There is something so sweet about a small gift to acknowledge and thank them for their hospitality!
I have 50 ideas for creative and lovely gifts! I think the trick is to find items that you would be delighted to recieve. No gift is too small, again, it’s just about the acknowledgment! So below I have items at all price points, but everything is under $50, and most are less than half that.
THE GAME PLAYER!
If you have a playful friend, how about something to keep the fun going all winter long? A really cool puzzle like this Night Sky Puzzle, One of the New Yorker Covers Puzzle or for your favorite feminist: a Women’s March Puzzle!
HOw about this rainbow hued play on Jenga?
Interesting Playing Cards are always fun. Or if you know some smartie pants or competitive friends (all in good fun of course!) these Pop Culture or Trivia cards can be a really fun gift!
For your friend with the impecible taste and the amazing home, here are a few pieces that would always be welcome!
This Prosecco scented diffuser is a favorite of mine- we have these all over in our house. This Manhattan is another great scent.
A cool art book is always a good idea. I love this one and this one right now.
Thymes Frasier Fir Candles officially birn in my house all winter- it’s just so good. Here is a really pretty version dressed up for a special gift.
Here is another classic, absolutely delicious Candle that is always in style.
tHese are items that are not just for your high-maintenance friends (no judgement! I am one of them!) These are items that pretty much anyone could enjoy in recovery from throwing a party!
How about a wonderful Hand Mask or some luscious Hand Cream to help recover dish pan hands!?
I have recieved this beautiful Hand wash many times before, and I am always delighted!
How fun to give the hostess who is sure to be tired the next morning a fun set of Soothing Face Masks or these Gold Eye Masks.
For your friends that love to cook, a beautiful bottle of good Olive Oil or Aged Balsamic Vinegar is always a good idea!
If they cook, then they will love a good pair of Serving Spoons for Salad or side dishes.
ooooh, or how about a lovely set of Cheese Knives and a Raw Honey Comb so that their next cheese platter is over the top!
Really pretty Measuring Cups like these are so fun and useful as measuring cups or as salt and ingredient bowls.
I love a really pretty napkin set or dishcloth set.
For your creative and open-minded woo-woo friends that love a touch of magic in everything they do, here are some wonderful hostess gifts that recognize who they are at heart!
If you have a friend who is an avid reader, grab a copy of the latest bestseller, and add these adorable bookmarks! Talk about making cracking a book more fun!
If you have a truly artistic friend, or someone who seems like they could really use more color in their life how about this Watercolors set? It has 48 colors and comes with a pad a brushes. Dreamy. So is this 40 piece Proffesional Markers Set. Just looking at it makes me want to journal/calender plan/write lists!
How about picking up a little plant at your local grocery store and gifting the cutest potted succulent?
What about some weird books that are fun, fascinating and may liven things up at their event!
This Palmistry Guidebook could have your hostess issuing palm readings over after dinner drinks! Or maybe the The Astrology of You and Me is more her speed? I own this one and it’s very fun to read about the mixology of astrological signs! If you have an EXTRA woo-woo friend, these beautiful Tarot Cards look fun!
These are gifts that I really think anyone would love and enjoy- mainly because they are all edible and who can be upset about that!
Really good Coffee Beans or a beautiful Tea Canister are awesome gifts. You could take things up a notch with a pretty mug– perhaps one with your hostess’s initial!
How cool is this Fancy Peanut Butter – made extra special with a loaf of fresh bakery bread!
Can you imagine bringing this Hot chocolate and some homemade gourmet marshmallows ? Maybe packaged up with some candy canes for a festive cozy package!
Showing up with Homemade cookies would always be welcome. And treats like homemade granola or a decadent loaf of homemade chai pumpkin bread to be enjoyed the next morning is a really thoughtful gift!
