Great Hostess Gifts for the Holiday Season

Lots of us will be traveling and visiting with friends and family over the holiday season and it’s always nice to bring a little thank you gift along with you (especially if you are staying in someone’s home).  So I thought I’d round up a few great gift ideas that you can buy ahead and have on hand or order and send ahead of your arrival, making sure you are the most gracious of guests.

  1. Pair a mug or two with a beautiful selection of tea (or coffee or hot chocolate!)
  2. Farmgirl Flowers has these amazing options to send as holiday centerpieces! I love the bowl of fruit and the berries in the ceramic pitcher is especially simple and pretty.
  3. Farmhouse Pottery is always a favorite, and this candle and striker set is so charming.
  4. Send ahead these luscious frozen croissants so they have something special on hand they can pop in the oven.
  5. Pair this simple set of gold candlesticks (my personal faves) with some pretty handmade candles.
  6. If you can plan ahead, a pair of monogrammed guest hand towels and a pretty soap are the perfect little gift they would not buy themselves.
  7. This potted rosemary topiary is so much more useful than flowers- it looks pretty in the kitchen and they can snip some herbs when needed for cooking.
  8. A monogrammed cheese board is a lovely little gift that always gets use!
  9. Someone sent these mini cupcakes to my mom once and they were BONKERS good. Like, seriously so addictive.
  10. Bring along a pretty frame with a favorite picture of you and the host.
  11. After cooking and entertaining, the hostess with the mostess might need a little chill time- these CBD bath salts and gummies should do the trick.
  12. This cute wine tote is re-usable and great to have on hand when dashing out to a dinner party.
  13. A glammed up version of Trivial Pursuit for the family that loves to play games– we have had many a raucous game of TP in our home on Turkey Day!
  14. A wreath is such a lovely gift instead of flowers.
  15.  These monogrammed notepads in a lucite holder is handy and glamorous for the kitchen counter.
  16. Pair a set of pretty dishtowels with some super fancy dishsoap.
  17. A new doormat for the holidays helps them perk up the front stoop (tree // wreath) !
