5 Go-To Hostess Gifts


It's easy to forget how much work goes into planning a party when you're not the one throwing it. No matter the formality of the fête, these 5 gifts are my favorite go-to's when I'm someone else's guest. Your hostess will appreciate it more than you know.

one. A fresh bouquet of her favorite flowers. In my opinion, you can never go wrong with peonies, hydrangeas or tulips wrapped in kraft!  two. A delicious scented candle. I love French Cade & Lavender by Voluspa or Illume's Twilight Vanilla (also currently on sale).  three. A classic board game to add to her collection.  four. Pretty (and practical) cocktail napkins for her bar. Society Social has some fun patterned options, like these.  five. And of course, you'll always be well received with a good old bottle of wine.

I'd love to know – what are some of your favorite hostess gifts?


  1. I love to do a gift bag of some of her favorite little things - a small candle, note cards, napkins. Hostess gifts are one of my favorites to put together!

    1. That's such a great idea! I'll have to keep it in mind. xx
