Are you looking for some fantastic hostess gifts to give this season? This is the season we’re invited to stylish dinner parties, or celebrating Thanksgiving and the holidays with a special gathering of people. In this post I’m sharing how you can turn up with a thoughtful hostess gift showing your gratitude. Coming up with something unique and personal can be tricky, but I’ve got you covered! Here are my picks for this season’s Creative Hostess Gift Ideas You’ll Actually Want to Give {And Get}

Creative Hostess Gift Ideas

Last year I got so many emails asking for “perfect hostess gifts” that I thought I’d put together some ideas for you BEFORE they sell out!  I’m sharing some favorite gifts that will show your hostess how much you appreciate her, and linking to them.

wow your hostess and get inspired with our creative Hostess gift ideas.

Ask any hostess and they’ll tell you that any opportunity to gather the people they love is a wonderful treat. Your hostess is most likely a natural entertainer, one who takes great care to create a time for guests to feel loved and welcome. She is the heartbeat of any gathering at her home. To show your gratitude, thank your favorite host with one of these stylish, sophisticated presents.

Say Thank you with style.

What can you give the hostess with the mostess? The best hostess gifts are useful and thoughtful, a little out of the ordinary, maybe something she may not think to purchase for herself.  A stunning pair of sparkly earrings to wear to all the soirees SHE gets invited to, or something so useful like a French wine carrier.


If you are invited to a dinner or party where you don’t really know your hostess all that well, think of a gift that both you, your daughter {or Mom} and your best friend would love to receive. It could be a wonderful set of antique silver tea spoons, or a linen runner in the seasons freshest color.

Creative Hostess Gift Ideas:


Raise the Bar.

Class up their bar cart or martini making situation by presenting your host or hostess with an antique English silver olive fork. I mean, who else will bring that as a gift? If you want to go all out, add a gourmet jar of olives for the best martinis around. You’ll be a favorite, I can guarantee it!

Let Her Sparkle and Shine!

Sometimes the best hostess gift is one that will make her the star of any show. A pair of gorgeous earrings she can wear to all her holiday parties is just the thing to help her look fabulous at all this season’s events.

Does your Hostess {or Host} have a Sweet Tooth?

One taste of these chocolatey malt balls with our favorite autumn flavor and she/he will be a fan like we are! Perfect hostess gift, wonderful when added to autumn charcuterie boards, or just go ahead and hoard them for yourself for those days that you need a cup of tea and something decadent.  Many of you missed these last year, as they go fast!
