Holiday Gift Guide for the Hostess

It’s almost holiday party time! Here are some great gift ideas to bring to your next festive gathering to gift that hostess with mostest! These Holiday Hostess Gifts are great as separate or paired together and I’ll give you some ideas for that too. Also, a personalized touch for a hostess gift is the extra mile that will make your friends and family feel extra special this season.

You can see all our gift guides as we add them week by week to our Holiday Gift Guide Page. Also, we are trying to save you time and energy on your gift hunts with our Holiday Shop of thoughtfully curated items by category for everyone on your list.

For the Hostess that Loves to Make Cocktails

I love to gift monogrammed cocktail napkins when I have enough time to plan out a gift for someone. Almost everything I linked above can be monogrammed or personalized with an icon. Pairing the cocktail napkins with a cocktail glass set or a bottle of their favorite sip is a great combination.

Other items to keep on hand for those holiday gatherings, bottles of champagne or wine and wine totes. These are those gifts that you can have on hand if your social calendar fills up fast during the holidays.

If you want to spend a little more on that hostess because she’s your BFF or number one Mom, an ice bucket & cocktail shaker set is a great idea. The set above. can be monogrammed too. Also a chic party bucket can make a lovely hostess gift.

A beer lover instead? How about a 6-pack of their favorite micro brews and this bamboo bottle opener.

For the Hostess that Loves Making Charcuterie Boards

Haha! This would be me…especially in the fall and at holiday time. For the hostess that always loves to grace her guests with the perfect charcuterie board. Gifting a set of chic cheese knives is a nice present. Pairing them with a charcuterie board book or book about cheeses is even better. If you want to go all out a new charcuterie board with the book and cheese knives is a home-run.

For the Hostess that Always has the Most Beautiful Tablescapes

Know that hostess with the perfect tables for those holiday dinner parties? Nothing better than a set of monogrammed napkins or a table runner. Bring a beautiful vase or cache pot with her favorite blooms is a nice touch too. Think of things like beautiful sets of napkin rings, placemats, or even trivets for the table.

For the Hostess that Always has a Scented Candle Lit Every Visit

Do you know a scented candle lover? Well, my hands down favorite holiday scent is Thyme’s Frasier Fir. I have never found another holiday scent I like better. This Frasier Fir Scent comes in candles of all sizes, diffusers, oils, hand soaps, and lotions. It’s delightful and smells like Christmas! A cute matchbox or glass match jar is a nice extra touch if you are gifting candles. Also, if you go the hand soap route, adding in a monogrammed hand towel or a set of guest towels with a tray is a lovely touch.

For the Hostess that Loves Creature Comforts

Obviously, the candles would be a great gift here too. Pairing them with a monogrammed blanket for fireside nights is a nice idea. Here’s some cozy blankets perfect for the winter months and priced right for gifting.

Happy Holiday Shopping!
