*Cue music* It’s the most wonderful tiiiiiime of the yeeeear .
We’re officially in holiday mode, I think. 🙂
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-organised person and already grabbed up your gifts in August. #nevermyreality
Today, I’m sharing some super-fab hostess gift ideas, most of which would actually make great gifts year-round. Think birthdays, Mother’s Day, house-warmings, weddings, showers, galentines, whaddeva.
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 the entertainer, the chef, the home decor lover and some ideas for your lovely host to just relax after a busy night of dinner-partying (is that a word?).
Here they are…

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 a 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.
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.
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 Decor 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
If your host is a mid-century style lover, this Matte Blush Mid-century 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 recently got this Zen Breeze essential oil diffuser on Amazon and put it on just before I go to sleep. 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 in my room while adding some room decor.
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).
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.
And that’s a wrap!
Is there something you’d add to this list? Let’s share some more hostess gift ideas in the comments section below.
