I am always on the lookout for a special hostess gift that won’t just get shoved in the closet. Of course, a great bottle of wine or a pretty bouquet of fresh flowers is always appreciated. If you are looking for some fresh ideas I have put together a list of some of my favorites and some new finds. Here is my list of hostess gifts for every budget that will get you invited back.
Top Left Aesop’s Resurrection Soap. My absolute favorite hand soap. A fresh clean mix of orange rosemary and lavender that seems to appeal to all. I love this apron from Cathy’s concepts. It works well for both males and females. I own these Pottery Barn horns handled cheese knives. They have a rustic sensibility that I love and they won’t break the bank. The hemstitched napkins are a Pottery Barn classic that they have stocked for years. I own these in the flax along with three other colorways. Always a classic in my mind. When I saw the price on this cheese tray with a monogram I thought sign me up. I am not a big fan of bringing someone a lovely wine in a goofy Christmas bag. This oiled number looks great and can be used for a wine country picnic later. I love the Rachel Ray for Target triple salt cellar. Every cook will appreciate having their salts close at hand and it looks great on the counter. I don’t know about you but I LOVE truffle salt, a luxury any cook will appreciate. The Nest Hearth candle was recommended by mry friend Deborah from 5th and State and I am in love. Is it just me or are there a lot of “icky smelling” expensive candles out there right now? Love these olivewood coasters from PB. They will work with almost any decor. Any cocktail aficionado will appreciate this monogrammed cocktail shaker. Chip and Jo designed these cute cookie stamps any baker will love. I love clever coffee mugs this one is also by Chip and Jo for Target. Cute inexpensive dishtowels also from Magnoia Home for Target. I want this inexpensive tray from World Market and I am sure any hostess on your list would love it too.
