When it comes to hostess gifts, a last-minute bottle of wine will do and search for fun finds for each host. We know you’ll also score major brownie points by showing friends, parents, and in-laws that you’ve spent the time and effort to find a personalized way to thank them.
Even if you’re planning to cook up a storm and be the star conversationalist at the gathering, it’s still nice to come with something unique in hand, and that’s where we come in. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite no-fail finds and we promise these presents are guaranteed to score you another invite to the next party.
Here, the best hostess gifts.
Think about grabbing a spice set for your favorite gourmand, a cool scarf for your MIL or a person bowl for the proud dog parent.
If you’re anything like us, you’ll find the perfect things for family and friends but totally forget about hostess gifts, and with the number of parties popping up on your calendar already, it’s clear you’re going to need a few.
Summer may feel like it was yesterday, but realistically the holiday is upon us. That means it’s time to break out your sweaters, prep your winter bod and get shopping for holiday gifts (or at least start brainstorming).
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.
City of Saints Whole Bean Single Origin Coffee
The green packaging is eye-catching but these roasts are more than just a pretty bag—one is filled with fragrant Arabica coffee ground in Brooklyn. Choose from the malt, cranberry and pumpkin-infused Shyira blend or the Hambela bag with blueberry, cream and cotton candy notes.
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.
