Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week and Christmas is right around the corner? If our schedule is anything like yours, there are several holiday parties on the horizon and lots of hostess gifts to buy and give, but sometimes it can be tricky to find an appropriate gift. This year, make a statement by bringing something a little more creative to the party than your typical bottle of wine. Shop our Holiday Hostess Gift guide for five of our favorite home delights that’ll definitely put a smile on the hostess’s face. Want more options?

A Warm and Cozy Throw

If you read last week’s article on making a cozy home, you’ll know that a warm blanket is the perfect gift for the upcoming winter season. Everyone likes to snuggle up, and a blanket is a d’ecor item no one can get enough of. Who doesn’t want an extra throw to layer on the sofa or bed? This throw from Kathy Kuo Home is made from Tibetan lamb wool that is ethically sourced from New Zealand. It can easily add a soft and cozy touch to any room, and it’s carried in several different colors!

A Gorgeous Decorative Box

We say “decorative box” instead of jewelry box because it truly can be used for anything! From a stylish way to store your odds and ends to a beautiful display of jewelry, pins, or other collectables, it’s a gift that can find several uses, so it’s perfect for the hostess! This pick features a glamorous and modern quartz crystal make with a gold plated geode detail.


A One-of-a-Kind Cheese Plate

Almost every holiday party is going to have a platter of hors d’oeuvres. A nice cheese and cracker plate is a guaranteed pleaser, so any hostess will be happy to receive a stunning cheese board perfect for presenting with its sleek marble base and natural buffalo horn handles.

Coasters with Cool Factor

Coasters are great gifts for the hostess. They’re simple gifts, but they’re also super useful for avoiding water rings and stains, so every hostess needs a nice set or two. We were so happy when we found these elegant coasters with a pale grey shagreen finish and warm wood trim. The matching holder also provides easy storage for when the party ends.


A Cherished Memory (In a Chic Frame)

One cute hostess gift idea we love is printing or developing a picture of you with the hostess and placing in a frame they’ll want to put on display. Not that close to the hostess? That’s okay, just the frame itself can be a special gift. Our favorite frame this year is this brass frame studded with beautiful quartz.
