We’ve rounded up some of our favorite no-fail finds—we promise these presents are guaranteed to score you another invite to the next party.
Here, the best hostess gifts.
Salt by Hendrix Clean Rose Soak
Flowers are a great gift for any occasion, but you know what lasts longer? Floral bath accessories. This beautiful bottle is filled with pretty petals and pink French clay so your host can enjoy a relaxing soak after they've finished entertaining. If you want to create the ultimate spa gift, pair the salts with a patterned hand towel or a cedar handled brush.
Mark and Graham Leather Photo Frame
This personalized Italian leather frame will inspire your host reason to go through their iPhone photos and choose a favorite one to print. If you’re feeling nostalgic, go find a great photo of the two (or three or four) of you and place it in the frame before you wrap it up.
Picnic Time Insulated Potluck Casserole Tote
We love the idea of baking something to bring to a dinner or party and placing it in this tote to bring with you. When you get there, you can gift your host the whole thing— along with a cute casserole or pie dish inside. They’ll think of you every time they use it (which will be a ton).
Williams Sonoma Dipping Oils Gift Set
The quintessential gift for people who love to entertain, this gorgeous set includes two different types of dipping oils—toasted garlic with red chile and Italian herbs with aged balsamic. The box comes with two small plates so it's ready to go—just add a crusty loaf of fresh bread.
