Hostess Gift Ideas For the holidays

By Design of Your Life


It's the only way I keep my sanity.

Hi! I'm Alicia & I prepare for the holidays in advance!

The holidays mean lots of possible get togethers, whether it's with family, friends, coworkers, or neighbors. I find it's easier to get some great hostess gifts in advance so it's one less thing to think about. 

Here are some ideas:


It's always nice to bring a bottle of wine or a favorite drink. Why not take it up a notch and pair it with some pretty barware the host could use at the party?

You can make them generic, so they can use them all year round, for a specific event or holiday, or even something sentimental. 

Sentimental Serving or Appetizer Plates.


Fill a pretty, neutral pitcher with some seasonal tea towels or kitchen utensils.

Bring an appetizer on a board or plate your hostess can keep.

As a hostess, I love getting seasonal items, especially because it's something I wouldn't buy for myself and it makes me remember our fun times together.
