Today in the world of gift guides, some things for the hostess. It’s always nice to bring along a little token of appreciation, whether you’re attending a small holiday gathering one evening or staying for four days around Thanksgiving. While a bottle of wine, champagne, or liquor is an easy solution, why not take your gifting to the next level? Plus, it can be tough when you don’t know people’s beverage preferences (or whether they drink at all).

Fear not, though, because there are so many other hostess gift options at all different price points. Depending on how much you’re trying to spend– which can obviously depend on how long you’ll be at the person’s home– it may be good to stock up and have a few of these on hand as we get into the midst of the holiday season.

I also love that a bunch of these would go well with a bottle of wine or champs… like these coasters and  this bottle opener; if you’re looking to be a little more spendy, the whisky rocks, cocktail napkins, and bar set.  Oh and something exciting? Tons of the items above ship free! Thanks, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, and Neimans :)

My other preference for a great hostess gift? A well-presented floral arrangement, a nice box of tea, and baked goods/breakfast for the next day. These are easy to pick up yet still a little indulgent, plus the host(s) will thank you for brightening up the following day. Try out this bread, this bread, or these muffins!
