Hostess Gift Guide

The holidays bring us lots of opportunities to visit people in their homes – dinner parties, Sunday School or community group get-togethers, work parties, gift exchanges and all the family celebrations. It’s always a good idea to bring a hostess gift! I invited my mom to share a few of her favorite ideas for inexpensive – yet thoughtful – hostess gifts. I know you’re going to love her ideas!

Her suggestions included:

  • A nice box of chocolates with a pretty linen cloth
  • An assortment of entertaining pieces: dessert plates, placemats, pretty paper napkins
  • A personalized ornament – can even be hand made
  • A pretty container with a few homemade treats
  • Flowers – but make sure you place them in a vase!

Want a few more ideas? Today on her blog, my Mom has 15 more ideas for hostess gifts!  I also really loved Queen of the Household’s Gift Guide for Homemakers – many of those would be lovely hostess gifts as well.

What is your favorite thing to bring as a hostess gift?

  1. Love all of these ideas, especially the wooden Christmas ornaments! I think I just might use that one this Christmas! You and your mom are so cute together! Have a great day!
