Holiday Gift Guide; For the Hostess

The holidays are some of my favorite times of year!  The memories my family has created from family filled Thanksgivings to decorating the house on Black Friday for Christmas and of course the Christmas Eve party every year, there are so many great things surrounding this time of year! The holidays are also the perfect time to shop!  If you’re the type of person who enjoys the gift go giving then you’ll enjoy my upcoming serious the Holiday Gift Guide!

Today we’re talking gift guides for the hostess because you NEVER show up to a party of any kind empty handed! When shopping for the perfect gift for the party hostess of your upcoming holiday events it’s simple to get something that stands out (not the bottle of wine everyone usually goes for) and something that will be put to great use in the home!  Below I have 6 items that I think are perfect gifts for the holiday party hostess in your life!

This 8 piece collection of wine glasses from Macy’s is the perfect gift for the hostess whom you know enjoys a nice glass of wine.  Lately I’ve become more conscious of not giving alcohol related gift stories those whom I’m unsure drink because you never know what people are going through however if you have a friend who enjoys a nice glass of wine then a wineglass set is the perfect gift! And these are currently on extreme sale! Snag them while out can.

A Decanter 


Keeping along the same theme of bar cart accessories! A decanter is the perfect gift for someone who likes a styled bar cart and a nice drink with friends.  Jeff and I bought one for my father for his birthday this year and he loves it! It look great on the bar, is easily washed and refilled with the hostess’ beverage of choice and is a fairly inexpensive gift!



Truthfully, I never wanted to be THAT person but I absolutely have a set of coasters on both my bar cart and my coffee table because any drink placed on the wooden coffee table must have a coaster.  This is why I believe coasters are a great gift!  Something small but needed and easily made personal.  You can find monogrammed coasters, posters with a design close the hostess’ heart, or even personalized! (for your wedding Jeff andI received coasters with our name and EST 2019! This is a small gift that can really be put to great use!



Typically, I’d advice against 2 things when gift giving.  Candles (because you don’t really know what sense people like in their home) and home decor (because people’s home style can at times be very personal to them) however I do feel like decor and decorative pieces are different and with candles like the linked above this is something that even if not lit can be a decor piece, whether that’s placed in the living room, the kitchen or even in the guest bath! Never grab a candle that is regularly labeled when giving it as a gift!

Bar Ware 


There is nothing like the complete bar ware set for the hostess.  I love a wine holder, ice bucket, shaker set because there’s something to be said about the look of cohesive pieces both when they’re being used and when they’re not and even if the hostess isn’t drinking there’s a chance someone at the party is making a drink and ice is always being used. This is also the perfect gift for a group of girlfriend’s to split and give! With each friend grabbing one piece its easier on everyone’s pocket and the hostess will still end up with a set!

Drinkware Set 


I will forever be an entertainer! I love the idea of having people over, whether thats for a dinner party, a game nights or even a girl’s night with just a handful of close friends and a drink ware set is the perfect gift for someone like me! This drink ware set from West Elm is simple enough to come with just the tray, 4 glasses and the ice bucket however the glass and gold detail make it something your hostess will definitely want to bring out on those event occasions! And guess what? It’s on sale right now for 30% off!
