2018 Holiday Host & Hostess Gift Guide
The holiday season has officially arrived, and with that, the much-anticipated stream of seasonal soireés. From Friendsgivings and Hanukkah celebrations to Secret Santa parties and New Year's Eve ball drops - you’ll likely have your plate full of fun events over the next several months.
While the holidays can instantly make us all busybodies, and inevitably turn us into party hoppers, it’s important not to forget to thank the hosts and hostesses that make it happen. After all, what would any successful, jubilant holiday feté be without the amazing friends, families and co-workers that put them together?
We’ve rounded up our top host and hostess gifts this season that will be sure to make you everyone’s favorite guest, and not to mention, guarantee you an invite back next year.
For the Tabletop Aficionado
For the host passionate about presentation, be sure to peruse Gather and Serve’s collection of dinnerware, serveware and accessories. We’re personally fans of gifting the Cambria Salt Cellars and Willows Salt Spoon pairing -- a great way to instantly elevate a table staple.
If your host is a fan of interesting textures, we highly recommend the Batonga Baskets from Clover Artisans. We love them styled as a statement art piece, but they work just as well as a chic fruit basket.
And for those who love to add a little sparkle to their tables, be sure to check out Esselle SF’s line of geo-inspired napkin rings and stylish place card holders. The Rose Gold Square Napkin Ring is perfect for the master entertainer.
For the Fan of Seasonal Sips
While a bottle of wine is always a nice dinner guest gift, think outside of the beverage box this year and surprise your host with a fun, festive libation. Ethic Cider’s newly launched Scarlett Cider is the perfect addition to any dinner table. With notes of raspberries and blackberries, not to mention, an irresistible ruby red color - it will instantly become a favorite to pair with any meal.
For the tea lovers and matcha mavens, we suggest shopping Kettl’s extensive line of fine Japanese teas and teaware. The company just announced a 2019 Matcha Teaware collection and we’re absolutely crazy for the Hakeme Matcha Set.
For Post-Party Relaxation
Reward your hard working hosts with a luxurious, curated box set from Bestowe Gifting. Featuring a number of stylish items from artisans around the country, these sets make gifting super simple this holiday season. Our favorites for hosts? The To Be Loved: A Beauty Suite box is a certified winner and will have your host thanking you.
