With holiday parties right around the corner, it’s a good time to stock up on hostess gifts. The holiday season is chaotic for everyone so getting a head start on these is super helpful. I like to keep a stash of hostess gifts on hand so that I’m never panicking last minute. My approach to hostess gifts is to hunt down items that are unique (read: no candles), but not so specific that they won’t please a variety of people. For example, something for the host’s home is never a bad idea. This set of acrylic tumblers is really fun. I also love this striped ceramic jug from Goop. For something a little more whimsical, take a peek at this brass “Xanax” dish. You could fill it with a favorite candy. Another of my go-to hostess gifts is a fun game like this travel backgammon set or this group card game. I also think that an instant camera (be sure to bring batteries!) is always a crowdpleaser. If you go the food route, opt for something that’s both delicious and beautifully packaged like this olive oil and salt set. This year, I’m gifting several hostesses these lipstick-shaped chocolates from Maggie Louise.
I’ve perused the web and hunted down a variety of options (16, to be exact) that are sure to please any holiday hostess. Scroll down to shop the full list.
