Once a kindergarten teacher, now your go-to guide for all things DIY. My passion for teaching didn't stop when I left the classroom - I merely switched from ABCs to DIYs. I've learned a lot from transforming my own home from scratch, and now I'm here to pass on that knowledge to you.
This time of year brings a season of hustle and bustle as we celebrate the holidays. There are parties, friendsgivings, ornament exchanges, holiday brunches, and so much more as we near the end of the year. Behind all of the celebrations are the hostesses that welcome us into their homes and create a fun atmosphere to celebrate. I always make sure I attend these events with a hostess gift in hand. If you’re needing a little inspiration or ideas on what to give your host or hostess, you’re right where you need to be. These are 5 hostess gifts that are truly thoughtful and fun to give. Each one only takes about 10 minutes or less to put together and they range in price points. There’s something for everyone!
Greet the host with this adorable stove top simmer by Evermine for their home during the holidays. They can either save it for later or put it on the stove to enjoy during the party. I’ve heard nothing but great things about stove top simmers to create amazing smells throughout the home.
You know I’m all about home decor. So to gift a hostess with a basket full of home items is something I can do! It has all of the essentials that every homeowner loves: candle, Mrs. Meyer’s hand soap, buffalo check dish towel, greenery, and a cute sign. Angela Marie Made certainly knows how to put together a gift basket!
Need I say more? I think we can all agree a homemade sangria is delicious. But, hello! Fantabulosity shows us how to use a drink dispenser and place the ingredients inside to give as a gift. It’s pretty much a genius idea!
Now, this is a thoughtful gift for the hostess. After throwing one amazing gathering, the last thing he or she wants to think about is breakfast the next morning. Make waking up after planning such a festive event, a joyful and relaxing one. Jenny Steffens included banana bread, whipped butter, and gourmet coffee in her basket.
Need to be able to create something quickly? Try this amazing idea by Melissa Creates. If it’s during the holiday season, attach an ornament that reminds you of the host on a bottle of champagne. Roll a magazine the host will enjoy and attach it to the champagne bottle with a ribbon. In under 5 minutes you’ll have a gift for the hostess. This one just might be my favorite because it’s the one I received from Melissa!
As you attend holiday gatherings, don’t forget to thank those that made the events possible. These are 5 quick and inexpensive ways to do just that. Which hostess gift is your favorite?
