Take the stress out of being a holiday party guest with the perfect hostess gift
The holiday season means holiday parties—from Thanksgiving through Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s. And lots of parties mean lots of holiday hostess gifts.
While gatherings may still be on the smaller side this year, every party has a host—and you never want to greet yours empty handed. A hostess gift shows your gratitude for being invited and guarantees you’ll leave a happy memory behind.
The best hostess gift is both special and practical, perhaps a beautiful version of something useful every day. While traditionally, hostess gifts are to be used for future entertaining, we also like the idea of unique gifts that play to a host’s special interests, maybe something for the home bartender, barbecue lover, gardener, or music lover. And of course the best gifts are always the ones we want but wouldn’t get for ourselves.
Need Holiday Hostess Gift Ideas?
We’ve gathered our favorite holiday and Christmas hostess gifts—thoughtful, maybe a little unexpected, even downright delicious—for hostess gifts that actually feel special.
So order a few gifts for the hostess now, then you’ll be ready when those holiday invites arrive. It’s also a great time to create a Christmas wish list and share it with family and friends to make sure you get exactly what you want this year (then ask them to share theirs with you!).
