Gift Ideas For The Hostess

Deep cleaning your home, cooking, and getting the table set perfectly; even for a small gathering for a few close friends can be stressful. There’s so much thought and planning that goes into each party, and I never take that lightly. Today, I want to share with you a few creative ideas that will ensure your hostess feels your thankfulness.  Tired of the go to Starbucks gift card or a bottle of wine, thoughtful, but lack luster. Whether it’s a baby shower, book club, dinner party or bridal shower that you are attending, knock it out of the park with these five ideas for your hostess with the mostest.

#1: Sugarfina Candy

Create your own gift boxes with multiple candies or give just one, either way Sugarfina is the perfect hostess gift. Is your hostess a chocolate lover? If so build your gift box with some of my favorites, dark chocolate sea salt caramels, peanut butter peanuts and chocolate pearls. Not a chocolate lover, stick with some of their classic staples like the champagne gummy bears, rose roses and peach bellinis.

#2: Alex and Ani Bracelets

Looking for something a bit more personal? Alex and Ani bracelets can be a great option for a hostess. Alex and Ani have bracelets with various charms such as initials, birthstones, zodiac signs, and inspirational mottos. All bracelets are adjustable and with so many options these bracelets can be a way to give a more personalized gift.  Easy to pick up at your local Nordstrom or order on Amazon Prime!


#3: Candles

A bit more traditional of a hostess gift but who doesn’t love a good candle, right!? I mean there are so many options for this one. Burning candles daily creates an added ambiance and refreshing smell to your house. My favorites to bring are ones that not only smell delicious but are also visually appealing. Voluspa candles have a variety of sizes, shapes and designs. You are sure to find something that fits anyone’s style with this brand. Plus they last so long!

#4: Wine Glass Markers

If your hostess enjoys entertaining and gathering with some wine, these wine glass markers make the perfect hostess gift. No annoying wine charm clunking around and getting in the way. With wine glass markers each guest can write their name or draw on their actual glass. The markings are easily washed away with water or in the dishwasher. Creativity is always encouraged and makes for fun parties!

#5: Cards Against Humanity

For lots of nights of laughs and fun, give your hostess the game of Cards Against Humanity. The best part about this game is, if the hostess already has the original game there are a ton of new expansion packs and additions that can be bought for new added elements of craziness. Your hostess will appreciate this gift because they can continue to use it and will always be reminded of your thoughtfulness.
