It’s party season! If you are planning on attending holiday parties this year, be sure not to show up empty handed. I’ve compiled 10 Fabulous Gift Ideas for the Hostess to share with you. These are easy to find, easy to order or just might inspire you to find something similar. Let’s start with edible gifts. Sweets and treats are abundant this time of year and they are especially great when they come with pretty packaging. Baking yourself? Buy cute plates like the elf one and present your goodies on the plate.

I always love personalized gifts! Think ahead and order monogrammed gifts for any upcoming events you are attending. The monogrammed mugs can be filled with candy, treats or a gift card and wrapped with cellophane and ribbon for a perfect hostess gift.

Delight your hostess with scented candles or body products. She’ll need the stress relief once the party is over!

  5. Great collection Kim. I really think the Fern in Burlap would make a great accent in a kitchen or window sill during the holidays. The sweet treats from CB are delicious. I have some in the kitchen right now. The holiday plates would do very well with a holiday kitchen design too.

    I love to give something personalized and since I do monogramming in my home I love to monogram pretty hand towels with the hostess' initials. Sometimes I give personalized note cards that I have made or a bar of my homemade soap with a pack of pretty paper hand towels. I love crafting so most of my gifts are homemade but I think that adds a special touch! I will have to tell you I do love that William Sonoma hot chocolate! It is so good and my favorite is the chocolate peppermint! YUM!

    I'm going to a couple of parties this month and I'm definitely going to buy monogrammed mugs! I just love giving personalized hostess gifts. I think it shows you gave more thought than just a bottle of wine. My only regret is I didnt see this sooner since one of the parties is this Saturday night but I think I'll head to Williams Sonoma for the hot chocolate or a Bath & Body store for some bath ammenities. I agree she will probably need them after the party!

    One thing I like to give to a hostess is a Lands End personalized Throw. I've given them as gifts to lots if people everyone LOVES them! I think it's their thermacheck fleece one. They had them on sale recently for half price ($14.50) and monogramming is only $6 & you can nearly always get free shipping with no min. order amount. It's the nicest personalized gift for $20! Trust me, you will not be dissaponted!
