Holiday gift guide for the Hostess

*This post has been updated to reflect items available for the 2019 Holiday season

Happy Wednesday, lovelies! With the season’s festivities many are bound to receive an invite to a few parties! Today’s gift guide is for the hostess! The host is fun to shop for and easiest to mark off list, don’t you think? It’s inevitable that she loves entertaining and her hobby is a broad one. We don’t all need to be niche experts to please even the most detailed hostess. That said, my go-to gifts for anyone hosting a party I’m attending for the holidays is always a bottle of preferred wine or heavenly scented candle. Sometimes I like to branch out and bring something different – maybe something she can use for future events, or to pamper for her work well done. I hope this hostess holiday gift guide helps give you some great ideas for all those upcoming parties on calendar this season!one | two | three | four | five | six | seven | eight | nine | ten | eleven | twelve | thirteen | fourteen | fifteen | sixteen | seventeen | eighteen | nineteen | twenty | twenty one | twenty two | twenty three | twenty four | twenty five | twenty six | twenty seven | twenty eight | twenty nine

Rather than detailing each listed, I thought to touch on a few of my favorites! A sophisticated cheese board is something you can pick up in almost any home store. Ease any happy hour mishaps and gift her a marble wine cooler, keeping wine perfectly chilled for her guests all evening. Did I say wine? She’ll love this personalized marble stopper, an extra aerator on hand, or this chic rose gold cork screw. If she enjoys coffee and wine equally, these merlot infused coffee beans combine her love for both.

Let’s state the obvious – party planning can be a lot on her plate. (pun intended) Pamper her a little and gift her an ultra plush throw, or a decadent bento box. Soften the hands of your hostess with this sophisticated Cypress set from Magnolia, or treat her skin to this Ever pretty young trio.  Or these chic earrings would complete the entertaining ensemble for any stylish host. Give her the royal treatment with a few other ideas for her here.

One idea for the hostess with the mostess is an entertaining book. All in Good Taste, by Kate Spade is one she’ll love for content, alone. It’s filled with how-tos, etiquette tips, recipes, and style, sure to transform your hostess (if she’s not already) into the entertaining queen. And she’s sure to enjoy an appointment notebook to prep for her next success.

In a pinch? Not to worry, my husband has pulled the “oh..we’ve been invited to a party tomorrow night” one on me, too. 😬 I made sure to include a few smaller, affordable items to have on hand for any last minute party invites. I am in love with these wrapped themed soaps, with several to choose from. A foodie will love these condiment spoons or tea sampler. And there’s no question (tho it implies) she’ll love this morning mug!
