Hostess gifts you’ll want to keep for yourself

Holiday party season is here! Once you’ve got your outfit planned and you’re ready to dine, dance, or otherwise celebrate, don’t forget to grab a little thank you for the hostess or host. Here are a few gifts, both classic and out of the box, to help you thank your favourite party planner for their countless hours of cooking and cleaning.

Statement Coasters

Coasters aren’t just for keeping rings off your vintage mid-century modern credenza anymore. Now, these functional little pads are making a small, but beautiful statement. You can find a beautiful, standout set to suit any style or situation.

Wine +1

Wine is the quintessential holiday hostess gift; however, that doesn’t mean your gift of the grape has to be the same old, same old. Add something festive along with your hostess’ favourite sip. Try an organza bag filled with miniature ornaments, a satchel of mulling spices, or a set of playful cocktail napkins.

Gourmet Snacks

Fine-crafted indulgences are always welcome, especially at this time of year. Try giving vintage favourites like peppermint bark or peanut brittle, chocolate and nut-covered toffee, or ooey-gooey chocolates. If your host or hostess prefers following a healthy diet, skip the candy and give a delectable cheese and fruit basket.

Stylish Serveware

If your hostess with the mostest deserves something extra special this year, why not give something to add to their serveware collection? Things like marble cheeseboards, Moscow mule mugs, and cake stands are often greatly appreciated.

Charming Kitchen Linens

You can never have too many kitchen towels. Present a charming set at this year’s holiday gathering, either on their own or as reusable wrapping around a bottle of wine, a batch of cookies or even a loaf of homemade bread.

Foot the Bill

For a pedicure that is. Chances are, your host or hostess has spent an inordinate amount of time on his or her feet preparing for this year’s holiday fete. So, treat them to some sweet relief with a gift certificate to their favourite spa for a relaxing pedi.

 

Food for Thoughtfulness

Your host or hostess can feed more than just their holiday party guests when you donate to a food-based charity in their name. There are many different soup kitchens, outreaches and agencies across the country, such as 5n2 Soup Kitchens,  Second Harvest, and Food Banks of Canada. These charities place a focus on providing hot meals or groceries to those in need.
