Top 12 Gift Ideas for Your Host

October 10, 2014

Are you going to a family or friend get together this holiday season? I know I am and I'm not the only one. Since Thanksgiving and the holidays are just around the corner, I've come up with my top 12 gift ideas for those who are hosting your get togethers (I couldn't stop at 10). You don't have to go crazy but if you want to give something more tangible than a bottle of wine or your highly talked-about casserole (although those can be great, too) then one of these gifts are a must!

Not gonna lie - this candle smells amazing and if you
don't have time to bake an angel food cake this is the next
best thing - other scents are available.
Boulangerie Jar, Tall // $26 // Anthropologie

This throw is so soft you may end up walking out of 
Pier 1 with two of them.
Fuzzy Throw - Sand // $44.95 // Pier 1

Who wouldn't love these gold-rimmed animal plates?
Gilded Dapper Animal Dinnerware Set // $12 // west elm

This carved box is a catch-all for almost anything - jewelry, 
recipes, keys, etc and is quite a steal at less than $20.
Hexagon Carved Soapstone Box // $14.99 // World Market

Just as functional as decorative, these measuring cups are cute 
as a button. I can't picture your host not loving them.
Matryoshka Measuring Cup - Set of 6 // $12 // Urban Outfitters

Everyone can use coasters and these make the perfect gift
especially because they're herringbone pattered mosaic tile.
Midas Coaster - Set of 4 // $19.95 // Z Gallerie

A cute gift for the couple hosting a meal or party. I think any 
one mug is a great gift for any occasion.
Mr. & Mrs. Muse Reversible Mug // $24 // Jonathan Adler

This bowl can serve more than one purpose - not only great for 
future events your host has but is some great eye candy as well
with its gold leaf design.
Nate Berkus Laurel Leaf Bowl // $29.99 // Target

I'm in love with this cheese board - of course, it's a map
of NYC. Could look great hung on a kitchen wall as decor when
it's not being used.
NYC Cheese Board & Spreader // $38 // CWonder

Not just your typical frame. This one serves as 
a decorative geometric object as well. 
Prisma 4"x6" Frame // $14.95 // CB2

Copper is stylish and classy. This tray can store items
anywhere and be a serving tray when company is over. 
Vanna Round Tray, Copper // $44 // Lulu & Georgia

Last but not least, I had to include my favorite smelling
candle. Each one of these candles are handmade from recycled
wine bottles to create a signature wine bottle candle. There are so 
many great scents but my favorite is the Rose which is pictured here.
You can find them at your local west elm or visit their very own site.
Rewined Candles // $28 // west elmrewind candles

You really can't go wrong with any of these items to give as a special gift to your host 
or hostess. All of these sites have many other gifts as well - it was super hard picking just one from each site! Which one is your favorite?
