For the host that’s always chopping up something in the kitchen, a chef’s knife is a great gift. This one from Made In is even more fabulous because you can engrave a name right on the knife. This 8-inch blade is destined to become an everyday staple and your hostess will think of you, the guest with the mostess, every time they cut.
Olive oil is a quintessential staple in the kitchen, so why not get your host a set they may not splurge on themselves? This one comes straight from California’s San Joaquin valley and includes three of Enzo’s signature olive oils, including basil, clementine and balsamic vinegar. Pair with a fresh loaf of bread and your hosts will have the perfect snack to share or keep all to themselves.
We could all use a little extra green in our lives, so why not bring a houseplant as a gift? We aren’t talking about your grandma’s houseplants. These unique, easy-to-care-for plants come in chic pots, and each plant that is bought guarantees a tree is planted in the U.S. National Forest. We love the braided monkey tree–it’s a symbol of good luck and prosperity.
True coffee lovers appreciate a good cup of Joe and Verve definitely makes a cup you’ll want to drink. Depending on your budget, you can pick up their holiday blend with beans that have notes of candied orange and spiced rum for under $20, or you can gift your host a coffee subscription. Either way, they’ll wake up thinking of you each morning they sip a delicious, unique cup.
If you are going to bring a bottle of wine as a gift, why not put it in a cool holder? These leather and suede sheepskin wine bottle holders are like Uggs for wine bottle. It keeps it at the intended temperature, can be used over and over again and looks pretty chic on the table or on-the-go.
Tea is a nice gift in general but it’s easy to take up a notch with these flowering inspirations. The set comes with a clear tea kettle, so you can watch the magic of the tea flowers blossoming while it steeps.
You could pick up a candle, but we prefer reed infusers that keep the house smelling delicious without even lighting a match. This one emits the smells of the holidays with cinnamon, spiced orange and cloves, and comes in a pretty ornate glass container.
The holidays are full of spreading cheer so why not help your host pass it on? These cute little notecards will brighten anyone’s day with the fun, intricately designed pop-up inside the card. Buy a holiday pack and help your host spread joy to the world.
The holidays bring on the bubbly. This cute, sparkly tote is filled with mini bottles of Ruffino Prosecco, the perfect size to open at your holiday dinner or save for later. The tote can be refilled with just about anything… including more prosecco.
Butter may not seem like the most obvious hostess gift, but these are a fun twist for those who like to bake, cook or just spread butter on toast. With flavors like everything bagel, cinnamon brown sugar, mushroom and sriracha jalapeno, your host will have fun experimenting with new dishes and they’ll think of you every time!
