While this may seem a bit premature, my mailbox is already starting to see the tell tale colorful envelopes that contains invites to some fun holiday parties. With the calendar quickly filling up, I definitely know that I need to have the perfect gift to bring to each soirée and holiday get-together.
I’ve never been one to show up empty-handed, but I know how much time it can take to find the perfect hostess gift to bring with you to every event. For me, I like to stock up on a bunch of hostess gifts beforehand that work for almost every party. Check out some of my hostess favorites below.
Nest Holiday Candle – Candles are a great hostess gift for basically every event. In a delicious festive holiday scent, it’s sure to bring a smile to her face when she finally lights it.
Peppermint Bark Syrup – Perfect for the hostess that loves her java, this syrup is great for adding to coffee, hot chocolate, you can even add a little to your tea. No need to make a Starbucks run when you can just add a splash of this to your hot chocolate at home. I’m definitely getting one of these for me as well.
Dessert Plates – This set of dessert plates is a great gift that a hostess will appreciate before the party is even over. She can use these to serve all the tasty desserts after dinner.
Aspen Needlepoint Pillow – I saw this pillow and immediately thought of like five hostesses that this gift would be perfect for. It’s a little on the pricy side, but will really wow the recipient.
Lush Merry Christmas – I’m kind of a Lush addict so anyone who receives a gift like this from me this year will totally know I aim to convert them to loving Lush as much as me. After all the stress from planning, preparing and hosting, tell your hostess to go enjoy a relaxing bath with a ton of fun holiday accoutrements like bath bombs and bubble bars and Santa’s dashing through the snow.
Peppermint Bark – No one brought dessert? No worries, your hostess gift has it covered. This box of festive peppermint bark is a delicious after-dinner treat that your hostess will definitely enjoy. Whether she shares any or not is a totally different story! 😉
The Bake Shoppe Bubble Bath & Shower Gel – If your hostess is very into the holidays (like me!), then she will love this bake shoppe bubble bath duo from Philosophy. She’ll love the chance to relax in a sea of deliciously scented bubbles after the party is finally over.
