Holiday parties are about to ramp up and you don’t want to arrive empty handed. A hostess/host gift goes along away and doesn’t have to break the bank. Taking a few extra minutes to wrap the gift in tissue and twine makes it extra special. Below are a few of our favorites options for every type of host!
A set of coasters is a classic gift that every house needs. Keep it festive this year with these gold etched CB2 coasters. Not only can they be used at the party but throughout the entire season.
A Gift for any Host
If you don’t know your hostess the safest gift is always a candle or bottle of bubbly. Our favorite candles this year are made by Tatine. These comes individually wrapped with a quote on each candle. For the bubbly, get festive with a bottle of Prosecco or if you’re feeling extra exotic bring Cava.
Outside of the box gift
There is no easy way around keeping the bathroom smelling fresh, especially when throwing a holiday party. Leave it to AESOP to create Post Poo drops. Aromatic, botanical, deodorizing drops not only smell terrific, but the packing is chic and discreet.
For the Outdoor Lover
Whether your host/hostess is a golfer, gardener or sun worshipper, a hand cream is always a good fit. The tops of the hands get dry, dehydrated and sun damaged. Hands to Heart is the perfect gift for a man or a woman.
The Gift of Sleep
Studies have shown a dark room is more conducive to a good night’s sleep. A silk eye mask is the perfect addition to anyones night time ritual. SLIP silk eye masks are available in a variety of colors and will satisfy the lightest sleeper’s eyes.
