If you’ve ever played “hostess with the mostess”, then you know how much work hosting a party can be. With the holiday season now in full swing, you are likely headed to one (or more!) holiday parties, and bringing a hostess gift can be a great way to show your gratitude to a hard working hostess. If you want to make a splash with your gift, here are some awesome hostess gift ideas.

Win Them With Wine

Nothing says “‘Tis The Season” like giving the gift of a festive bottle of wine, a fancy liqueur or even a bottle of the hard stuff (assuming you know that the recipient partakes). If you want to give your wine gift a little more oomph, create a wine or liqueur-themed gift basket complete with delectable dark chocolates, gourmet crackers and high-quality cheese. Want to make it a bit more personal? Personalize a beautiful ornament for the hostess’ family and use the ornament as a wine bottle charm or as the decoration on top of the gift basket.

Five Awesome Hostess Gift Ideas They Will Love

Give Her A Personalized Ornament

The gift of a personalized ornament is a great hostess gift idea for so many reasons. For starters, at less than $20 each, it’s a gift that won’t break the bank during an often expensive season. It’s a gift that will fit inside of your purse, and the fact that you took the time to personalize it for her will let your hostess know that you are thinking of her. Best of all, you canselect from ornaments that include hobby, the number of people in her family, her occupation, and so much more.

Say It With Flowers

No doubt about it, people love getting flowers and there are some gorgeous winter flowers that would make a pretty bouquet in a vase. Even a beautiful plant like the poinsettia can symbolize the season and offers your hostess another decoration to add to her probably already beautifully decorated home. Does your hostess have a hobby, like gardening, for example? Add an ornament with her name on it that features her favorite hobby.

Desserts With A Personal Touch

Just about everyone has a sweet tooth, and a tray of homemade fudge or delicious homemade cookies will be a treat worth savoring. Your hostess can set it aside for herself or share it with her guests. Offering sweet yummy treats on a cute cake platter or holiday serving dish gives her the double gift of both the sweets and a lovely dish that she can reuse again in the future.

Love In A Basket

Similar to our wine gift basket idea above, creating a themed gift basket for your hostess will be something she’ll remember for a long time. Whether she’s a lover of chocolate, a lover of bath products, or a lover of pets, the sky’s the limit in terms of how you can create an amazing gift basket. Personal ornaments make a great addition or basket-topper as part of your gift.

With a little ingenuity and effort, you can create a truly personal hostess gift. Browse our selection of more than 7,000 ornaments for some additional inspiration!
