Gift Guide: The Hostess

I hope that today's gift guide can help you out in two ways: 1) to buy hostess gifts for the people whose holiday parties you are attending but may not know that well, and 2) to buy a gift for your friend whose apartment is *the* place to hang out and who loves having people over, no matter what the occasion. All of these gifts are super affordable and perfect for the "hostess with the mostess" who is always entertaining!

Nostalgia Electrics S'mores Maker - $30 {wrap this up with some graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows for a cute and unexpected gift!}
C.Wonder cheese flavor knives - $34 {pairs perfectly with the cheese board}
C.Wonder polka dot cake stand - $58. {can also be used as a jewelry tray}
Vinturi red wine aerator - $40. {so she can always pour the perfect glass!}
Lulu & Georgia cutting board - $74 {you can't go wrong with this gift}
Books With Style 'Dinner Diaries' - $50 {includes sample seating charts, menus, guest lists, & place cards}
Lulu & Georgia agate coaster set - $75 {a gorgeous statement piece for her living room}
Cathy's Concepts personalized Moscow mule mugs - $75 for 2 {much more unique than wine or cocktail glasses, and monogrammed to boot!}
SFERRA 'Burke' throw - $80 {a pretty geometric blanket that comes in a nice variety of colors}
Tory Burch 'Westerly' candle - $60. {jasmine & gardenia make this candle smell as pretty as it looks}
Kate Spade 'Food for Thought' placemat - $16. {there are multiple cute phrases to choose from, including "save room for dessert!"}


  1. I love those personalized Moscow mule glasses!

  2. Is it bad that I want each gift for myself!? Lol I especially love the cheese knives and the book'n

  3. I'm dying over that cake plate! My husband will kill me if I buy another one!


  4. Hostess gift guides always end up being my favorite ones.... think that means I need to host some holiday parties myself ;)

  5. Such a great list! As you know, I love to entertain.
