Hostess Gift Ideas: Thank You

The whole point of a hostess gift is to give the hostess a token of your appreciation of her efforts to host your event and to give her a little something to either make the event easier to host (think: bottle of wine) or something she can use later. 

First: a few tips for when you give your hostess gift. 

Wrapping is optional. Sometimes a bow is plenty of wrapping for a hostess gift. Especially if it’s a gift she will want to use for the event.

Greet your hostess before handing her a gift.

Give her the gift privately if possible. You don’t want to make other guests feel bad if they didn’t think about bringing a gift. 

Don’t expect your hostess to open the gift immediately. She’s probably wide open in hostess mode and will open it later. 

Let me let you in on a little hostess gift giving secret: hostess gifts can be cheap. You don’t have to bring a hostess gift from Williams-Sonoma to be invited back!

But, just to make your job easier, I’ve found a few of my favorite hostess gift ideas for thank you gifts on Amazon. These also make amazing unique housewarming gift ideas. 

I like to have a few of these ordered ahead of time on hand in my storage closet to have ready for those random times I realize I need a last-minute hostess gift and don’t have time to run out to the store or order something online.
