The best part of the holiday season is spending more time with family and friends. From family dinners to a neighborhood cookie exchange, it’s so nice to have fun, festive events to attend. I like to bring a little something special to thank those that host at the holidays. Below are 5 ideas for hostess gifts this season:
1.) DIY Hostess Gift: Baker’s Mason Jar
Supplies: mason jar, dish towel, holiday colored kitchen utensils, ribbon and small card. I found really cute holiday spatulas at Target to add in!
Directions: Tie ribbon around the mason jar and attach the small card. Fill the jar with the utensils and dish towel. This is an especially fun gift if you’re going to a holiday cookie party!
Optional: Spray paint the mason jar gold, silver or red first
I recently ordered a number of items from Shutterfly’s “home decor” section and I am really impressed. The quality is fantastic and they always have such great coupon codes (like right now everything is 40% off). Usually when I think Shutterfly, I think photo gifts, but now they have so many art/ design patterns that do not include photos. Of course if you do have a photo to add, that’s a nice touch too! A few of my favorites as hostess gifts:
Sometimes the best way to show someone you are glad they are hosting you at the holidays is with a homemade gift. We have a post with 4 great DIY gifts. The plates could be made with the family’s last name to make it really personal! Click here for all 4 gift ideas.
Crown Linen Designs truly has your traditional hostess gifts. They are gorgeous embroidered linens that make perfect holiday gifts. Some of their line that would be great for a hostess: wine bags, napkins, hand towels, table squares and table runners. They are beautiful, well made and would be a special addition to the hostess’ home. Price range $15.95 & up // website
5.) Raw Spice Bar
This is a fun gift that keeps on giving! The Raw Spice Bar Spice of the Month program is only $6 a month. You can decide how long you want to send it (the 6 month is just $36). It’s awesome because each month you get 3 packs of custom spices with recipes. So it’s like giving a hostess 3 tasty meals a month! Here’s how it works: you receive a box with 3 freshly ground spice blends in packets plus kitchen-tested recipes. I’ve tried a few packets now and they are easy and delicious.
Happy gift giving!
