Whenever I go to someone’s house for dinner or a party, I always try to bring a little something for the host or hostess. It takes a lot of effort to plan a nice event, even if it appears to be a casual soiree or the hostess seems stress free.
I’m heading to my sister’s house for Thanksgiving and you can be sure I’m packing an extra present or two for her! She makes hosting people look easy and always sets up an incredible breakfast spread each morning!
Here are some of my favorite gifts to give the gracious host or hostess…
One: Candle — This is my favorite candle of all time. It smells so good! You can’t go wrong with giving a candle!
Two: Monogrammed Throw — This is a beautiful blanket and would make a sweet gift.
Three: Cheese Labels — These are too cute! These would be perfect for anyone who loves to serve up a good cheese plate.
Four: Peppermint Bark — If you don’t know your host or hostess very well, you can’t go wrong with peppermint bark from Williams Sonoma. This stuff is so addictive — you’ll likely earn yourself an invitation to all future events!
Five: Door Mat — I love this cheeky doormat! This would make a great gift to the hostess with a sense of humor.
Six: Tea Towel — I love to pair tea towels with hand soap for a sweet and practical gift.
Seven: Marble and Wood Serving Tray — These serving boards make a great gift for the hostess who does a lot of entertaining.
Eight: Coasters — These coasters have cute sayings and tell your hostess that you’re not about to leave a ring on her coffee table!
Nine: Wine Bag (and of course, a bottle of wine!) — Wrap up your favorite bottle of wine in a chic wine bag. I like to gift wine from vineyards I have visited with a note telling the hostess about my trip to the winery and why I think they’ll love it too!
