Holiday Gift Guide – Hostess Gifts

hostess gift ideas

It’s that time of year- holiday parties every time you turn around. Let’s be honest, a lot of them you don’t even want to go to. I say, go to as few as possible! That is the bright side here, everyone is so busy, you can always claim you have a conflict 🙂

Anyway, some of these parties I bet you do want to go to. The one your best friend is having, or your mom or cool aunt. Obviously you can always bring a bottle of wine (or a bottle of flavored vodka. Vodka is the best.), but here are some other fun options. If you’re creative, they will actually remember that you brought something.

 #1 & #2 Will pets or kids be at the party? Your hostess may love to have something to keep them out of her hair. My friend’s kids love these LEGO Friends toy sets, and my dog loves Kong Wubbas. Plus, how popular will you be for remembering their loved ones?!

 #3 Here’s a cute gift for someone who has everything- paper straws! They come in so many cute designs and colors, and are something most people wouldn’t buy for themselves.

 #4 Reusable bags are always a great gift. They can be used for a million things. They’re a fun way to wrap a gift, they’re perfect for grocery shopping (some cities are now charging for bags with your groceries, so bringing your own just makes sense), and I like to always have one shoved in my purse. I use mostly Baggus, but I actually think Chico Bags are more convenient. Baggus have a separate stuff bag that I never seem to have around. The Chico Bags have an attached stuff sack that I can never lose.

 #5 Around the holidays, everyone has a ton of thank you cards to write. She can do it in style if she has this cool Kate Spade initial card set! I wish the lettering came in different color options, but you can’t have everything. The dots and stripes together are adorable.

 #6 I know this is ridiculously random, but these measuring spoons fit inside spice jars! If your host or hostess likes to cook, these would make a really cool gift. I have no idea why I’ve never seen this before. It’s brilliant.

 #7 How about some Chakra Bath Salts? The cheerful rainbow colors are fun for someone who loves baths, and they have that indulgent spa feel.

Is anyone throwing any parties this year? I just… can’t. I’m tired. I’m old. I’m… lazy? Okay, fine, mostly tired and lazy. But if anyone wants to come over and drink in a non pressure-y un-party themed atmosphere, come on over!

  2. I always given cute reusable bags stuffed with wine (they don’t create clutter), but now I’m going do flavored vodka. How come I never thought of that? I love vodka! The best hostess gift I have ever received was plain plastic hangers. You never know you need a few dozen until you can’t find the bed in your guest room.
