Hosting an event or holiday can be a lot of work, so why not bring a little something to show your host a bit of gratitude? There are so many great host/hostess gifts out there, whether you want to get personal or just get them something cool they might not buy themselves. Here are 25 of our favorite gifts to give this holiday season and beyond!
If your host prefers to choose their own adventure, Sugarwish is the perfect gift for them. You choose the size and what you want to give them — which includes candy, cookies, wine, candles and so much more — and they choose their preferred treats. It’s a win-win for all.
At first glance, it may seem odd to offer a storage solution as a housewarming gift, but your host will appreciate this really awesome way to store leftovers. These souper cubes are for more than just soup. Store sauces, herbs, casseroles, pastas, and more. When ready to use, simply pop them out and reheat. No worries about freezer burn, and for that, your host will thank you!
What’s better than bringing over flowers? Bringing over a beautiful vase to go with them so they’ll think of you anytime they put flowers on the table. We love these Momma Pots vases that come in a variety of colors and sizes.
Coasters aren’t just for stopping cup rings. They can also add a fun piece of art to the table! These blue-checkered Mackenzie Childs coasters are a nice addition to any table and they’re heat resistant as well.
This bundle is perfect for the host who loves to bake or someone who loves breakfast sweets. The bundle comes with their delicious pure vanilla extract, gourmet grade vanilla beans, and pure vanilla bean paste — all perfect for amping up baked goods.
There are Swedish fish you can buy at the local store and then there are these Swedish fish that come from Sweden. The candies are all naturally covered and gluten free, and they always come packed beautifully. Your host will appreciate this sweet gift!
Sometimes, the best hostess gift is an easy solution for future dinners that still tastes gourmet. Carbone’s pasta sauce three-pack comes with one jar of marinara, one tomato basil, and one arrabbiata. They can add to their favorite pasta for an easy meal.
A good hand cream is the perfect antidote to hands chapped from washing dishes after guests leave, or just dry from the winter. This sleek three pack from Grown Alchemist is the perfect addition to any kitchen sink, powder room, or vanity.
The simple, yet stunning pottery that comes from the Blue Ridge mountains is a perfect hostess gift as it’ll work in any kitchen. This pottery is super durable too — both microwave and dishwasher safe.
This fun bundle is for the sweets lover who has an affinity for coffee. Chocolate-covered espresso beans, espresso-infused caramels, and classic hot chocolate make up this trio that any host will love.
Impress your host by showing up with a caviar set to show your gratitude. Packed perfectly in a little cooler, your host can enjoy caviar, creme fraiche, and blinis, all packaged with two mother of pearl spoons.
Hosting an event can be stressful, so why not gift a moment of relaxation? This candle and tea set is like a moment of zen in a box. Pick your flavor and scent of choice. The box comes with a set of four long spoons as well.
You haven’t had dates until you’ve tried these from the Coachella Valley. The perfect host gift (and snack!), this bundle comes with a box of their gorgeous dates, nut butter from Big Spoon Roasters, and a jar of flaky sea salt.
A cozy blanket for hibernating during cool winter nights? Sign us up! These super soft marshmallow blankets come in a variety of colors to meet any aesthetic and they make a fantastic gift when you want to go above and beyond.
This simple, but pretty tray is the perfect gift for any host. It’s a great item for all the stuff that just needs a place. Throw your keys and sunglasses on it, maybe a bill you need to pay, or just leave it as is so the pretty art shows through.
Very few people invest in a good pepper mill, so that’s why it makes a fantastic gift. Once you experience freshly ground pepper, it’s hard to go back. We love this set for the fun colors and ultimate functionality!
A plant is always a nice gift, and this one is especially fun. This compact plant allows you to grow Meyer lemons that add a beautiful scent to the room, plus it’s great for making cocktails, dinner, dessert, or anything else your host dreams up.
This is the perfect gift for a good friend who is tackling adult life alongside you. A cheeky take on Girl Scout badges, these are awarded for seemingly everyday adult tasks that we can’t always pull together!
This babka is always a fan favorite gift to give to hosts. It’s the perfect addition to brunch or slice a piece or two for dessert. This three pack is perfect to save one for yourself and give two to your host — one to enjoy now and one to freeze for later.
