With Thanksgiving around the corner (in the US) and Christmas not too long after, it’s a great time to start thinking about what gifts you’re giving this season, unless you’re a super-organized person and already grabbed up your gifts in August. #nevermyreality
Although hosting holiday events may look a little different this year, social gatherings will still be happening, even if on a smaller, more intimate (and socially-distanced) level.
Today, I’m sharing some gorgeous hostess gift ideas from Amazon, most of which would actually make great gifts year-round for the women in your life.
Think birthdays, Mother’s Day, house-warmings, weddings, showers … you get the picture.
Annnd I suspect you’ll also want to snag some of these items for yourself (I already have! lol).
I’ve broken them into a few broad categories so there are hostess gift ideas for someone who loves to entertain, the chef, the home décor lover and some self-care pampering gifts for your lovely host to just relax after a busy night of dinner-partying (is that a word?).
Ok, let’s get started…

Gold Flatware Set
I’ve been seeing Gold flatware sets everywhere lately. This set is really affordable and, from the thousands of positive reviews on Amazon, the set is clearly a winner.
(It comes in rose gold and matt black too if you think your host would prefer that).
Marble Coasters are classic. Coasters are a must-have when entertaining and this 6-set marble coasters with brass inlays make a stylish statement.
I absolutely love how a charcuterie board looks on a dinner table. This bamboo cheese/charcuterie board has a slide out drawer for the utensils, which makes storage super easy.
Moscow mule mugs
These copper mugs are so pretty!

I really love this Parisian Gold Bartender Kit. So classy! The stand makes it easy to store and display on a shelf when not in use, instead of stuck in a drawer. Mixing drinks just got super fancy.
This trendy marble and teak serving board adds a nice touch to a tablescape.
I like the low profile yet luxe look of this gold Bluetooth speaker. Great for maximising sound in small spaces (it can fit in the palm of your hand).
If your hostess spends a lot of time in the kitchen, then she’ll be happy to get these Natural Teak Cooking Utensils. Can never have too many of these, right?
This Cat spoon rest made me smile and would be great for the cat-loving hostess (or cat-lover in general) in your life.
This stainless steel French rolling pin is a lovely option for the baker. Maybe you’ll even land yourself some delish croissants. #yum
Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Table cookbook is made for dinner parties and gatherings. This one is on my wishlist!
The Home Décor Lover
Coffee table books are never going to go out of style. Classics like the Chanel:Collections and Creations book help create a lovely decor moment in a home.
Homebody by Joanna Gaines. (yes another one of her books) Home decor advice + coffee table staple. Need I say more? lol
Soy Candles are really trending right now and a great scent complements your décor. This one by Lulu Candles and this one by Benevolence got great reviews for being slow-burning with long-lasting scents.
If your host is a mid-century style lover, this blush planter (pot and stand) makes a gorgeoussss gift!
Or you can get this adjustable planter (without the pot) as a more budget-friendly option if you or your hostess already have suitable pots on hand.
And because she needs to relax at the end of all that hosting…
I got this essential oil diffuser last year and love it. Initially, I used it at night with lavender essential oil to help me sleep. But most times I use it during the day like when I’m doing chores in my room.
Even just looking at the mist as it diffuses is pretty relaxing. I have a growing collection of essential oils, so this is a great way to play with scents combinations while adding some style.
One tip I’d add is to use very little essential oil (like 1-2 drops) if you’re using it in a small space like I am.
At first, I used too much and the mist was too strong!
If your host doesn’t have any essential oils already on hand, this essential oils gift set has a nice range of options to get started.
Over the last couple of years, I’ve become a huge fan of audiobooks. An Audible gift membership is a lovely gift for someone who’s big on reading but short on time or who just prefers to listen to a book while doing something… or nothing (like being stuck in traffic).
Cozy House Slippers? Ummm, yes please!!
I’m a huge tea drinker (well I’m actually trying to cut down a bit) and I find it really relaxing. This tea infuser cup makes a great gift for someone who’s big on tea like me.
This tea gift box has a lovely selection of teas.
And that’s a wrap!
