Gift Guide: Hostess with the Mostest

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Gift guides are back (see Monday's guide here) and today we're talking about hostess gifts. Whether you're staying with a friend over a holiday weekend or going to a Christmas party, the Holidays are always full of fun events and it is always good to not show up empty handed. These gifts span a variety of price ranges, making them perfect for any hostess!

Evelyn Henson Map Print- Getting your hostess a map of an important city (whether it's a city you traveled to together or her hometown) from Evelyn Henson is such an unique gift and would really show how grateful you are for her. This would be perfect to give if you are staying overnight at someone's house over the holidays

American Ornament- Ornaments are such a cute and easy gift idea. I especially love this American one from Swoozies, so cute!

Draper James Coaster Set- Draper James has so many cute items it's slightly ridiculous but I love these holiday coasters as they are so darling! Definitely would be a fun gift for a holiday cocktail party

Kate Spade All in Good Taste Book- I bought this book earlier this year and it is so fun. I love all of the etiquette and party-throwing advice, which makes the perfect gift to give to a hostess!

Anthropologie Dish Towel- Anthropologie's home decor and accessories section is the cutest and I absolutely love this dish towel. It is so cute and would be perfect to bring along with you to a Christmas party

Kate Spade Cutting Board Set- I absolutely love Kate Spade's home section and this cutting board is a part of a set that would be so cute to give as a hostess gift. I mean, who doesn't love Kate Spade?

North Carolina Cutting Board- This cutting board comes in several different states and you could even show up with some cheese and crackers on it for a party. Definitely a fun statement piece!

Lilly Pulitzer Soap Set- Perfect for the southern hostess or the hostess that already "has it all". You can always count on Lilly for fun pieces and this soap set is no exception!

What are your favorite hostess gifts? Let me know in the comments!
