This time of year is full of dinner parties, family visits, and staying in guest rooms. We know that also means it’s hostess gift season!
Sometimes it’s hard to come up with ideas for hostess gifts, especially if you don’t know the host very well. Often hostess gifts are the first (or only) time you buy a present for someone in your social circle. No need to worry, though.
Thank your hosts for sharing their homes with one of these unique hostess gift ideas you can buy for less than $20!
A serving tower, like this three-tier glass stand, is a host’s dream. It maximizes space while setting up a great presentation. Plus, it looks much pricier than it is.
It’s all in the details, and this embossed plate and wooden spread knife set gets every detail right. It gives butter—or any spread—a little bit of elegance.
sharing made easy
Guests can easily share with this whimsical Boston Warehouse lazy Susan. Its lavender honey design feels vintage, but the easy-clean plastic design makes it clear it’s modern (and practical). Take it for a spin!
share the glow
Spread some holiday cheer with a wonderful spruce-scented candle. Not every home can accommodate a real pine tree, but every home can have the scent of fir needle, holiday pine, and cedarwood. This one even comes in a cute vintage tin. It’s the perfect versatile hostess gift idea.
treats for tots
Nothing keeps children occupied like a novel new toy. Bring a puzzle, game, or coloring book for the children in the house to guarantee your host’s appreciation and the kids’ good behavior.
Try something from F.A.O Schwarz, newly available through Stage.com.
If all else fails, you can revert to classic ideas for hostess gifts. Grab a coffee cake, bag of fresh pasta, or another fun food item to thank your host. If you’re lucky, they might even share!
