5 Thoughtful Gifts for the Host or Hostess


The holiday party season is upon us, and we know you’d never want to arrive empty handed at that much-anticipated soiree. We’ve put together our ideas on thoughtful and easy gifts for the host or hostess this holiday season. See below for five ways to show your gratitude with style!

1. A Gift for the Adventurer

For those with adventurous tastes, try a gift of a rare hot sauce as a nice addition to a holiday overload. This guide from Bon Appetit lists the editor’s picks of hot sauces by state. Select your regional sauce and secure your invitation for next year’s bash.

2. A Gift for the Wine-Lover

A nice bottle of wine never goes amiss, especially at a larger event. Check out Wine Enthusiast Magazine for a list of this year’s go-to wine gifts.

3. A Gift for the Coffee Enthusiast

Do your part to help out with the morning after with a thoughtful specialty blend, like this seasonal favorite from Starbucks. Go for gold with a thoughtful personalized mug!

4. A Gift for the Master Chef

Help the host or hostess create the perfect finishing touch with a specialty kitchen gadget, like this microplane from Sur La Table. Pair it with some holiday nutmeg, a block of their favorite cheese, or a pair of fresh oranges to top the perfect hot toddy.

5. A Gift for the Minimalist

For the clutter-free host or hostess, skip the gift and arrive with a thoughtful thank you card in hand. Everyone wants to know their hard work is appreciated, and expressing your gratitude will reassure the hosts that even the most hectic holiday bash was well worth the effort.
