To me, a big part of the holidays is the fun that comes from hosting family and friends to celebrate the season. I love cooking for my loved ones and hosting festive parties. We all know how much work it takes to put together a dinner party so I always bring a hostess gift (and appreciate getting one). Here are a few ideas for the hostess you know.
I’ve looked back at many holiday photos wishing I was wearing a cuter apron! My apron gets a work out when I’m cooking so I need to change into a fresh one, right before people arrive. I know every cook and hostess appreciates a new one which makes it a perfect hostess gift.
I ordered this set from Pottery Barn for three reasons. Its neutral colors will go with everything I’m wearing (which, as silly as it sounds, is important to me), and matches the colors in my kitchen. This set of 12 professional aprons means she can have a fresh apron available, no matter how much she spills:)
MacKensie Childs lovers will be thrilled to get this apron in her classic check. This Harlequin Pattern apron is awesome too. Come to think of it, this would match everything I wear and my kitchen decor too! This Owl Wine Stopper is too cute and would be awesome included with a fabulous bottle of wine!
These handmade Gnome Wine Gifts bags are a hoot and very affordable! I also love these White Faux Fur gift bags which look like the bottles are in a snowdrift. How about these Button Coat and Collar Wine Gift bags? These gift bags would also look adorable holding your own bottles for a party or just as decorations. Hmmm…I may need one of these for my kitchen counter.
This elegant, striped two-bottle wine carrier would make a terrific gift for the wine lover you know. How about this Golf Bag Wine Bottle Holder for the host or hostess who loves to golf? Here are a few other interesting ones.
A few years ago on a trip to wine country, I discovered these cute little wine cork candles. They make a darling gift for a hostess, who can pop them into an empty bottle during a party for a fun decoration.
Keeping with the wine theme for a moment, one of my favorite hostess gifts are wine charms. Not everyone has them and they are oh-so-handy for a bigger party. I like this set from Walmart.
These cork ones are fun, as are these classic vineyard themes and these stunning Agate Wine Glass charms. I’m also a fan of these wine glass writers. The hostess can write the guest’s name or it’s fun to let each guest personalize their own glass and it washes off easily.
In my experience, you can never have too many tea towels. Mine could always use refreshing so having some pretty new ones to use while entertaining, is always a welcome gift. A pretty set, brought with some freshly baked goodies, is a nice idea.
Finally, a nice warm candle can be used right away and is a nice reminder for your hostess of how much you appreciated their meal. These are some of my current favorites
Are you hosting a holiday dinner this year, or going to visit family or friends?
Thanks for reading ladies and have a great day.
