Holiday Gift Guide: The Hostess

Holiday season is upon us.

Which means it’s time for caroling, merriment, and - my favorite - holiday parties! And because it’s rude to show up empty handed, I’ve gathered a list of some of my favorite hostess gifts to get you from now until the new year.

'Tis the season!

Holiday Gift Guide: The Hostess


1. Shinola Key Fob: This leather and brass key ring is great for someone who likes everything - even her keys - to look good. Plus it’s made in Detroit, so you know I’m a fan.
2. Bath Salts: This is the perfect gift for the hostess to enjoy after the party is over. More than likely she’s worked her butt off to perfect her event and deserves a little relaxation.
3. Coasters: Colorful coasters are fun and festive, plus they help keep her coffee table free of spills and wine rings.
4. Stationary: Holidays are all about making lists (and checking them twice). End up on the nice list by gifting a personalized stationary set or notepad.
5. Coffee Table Book: I love a good coffee table book. Dinner Parties is perfect for the woman who loves to host, well, dinner parties.
6. Succulent: Sub flowers for a succulent in a beautiful pot. They last longer than fresh flowers, plus the receiver doesn’t have to search to find a vase and worry about cutting the stems and arranging the bouquet.
7. Bottle Opener: Gone are the days of boring bottle openers. This geometric version will look like a piece of art displayed on a bar car.
8. Monogrammed Stemless Champagne Flutes: Add a bottle of bubbly and you have a great his and hers gift for a hosting couple.
