It’s the season for get-togethers, and it’s good manners to never show up empty-handed. But what do you bring someone as a great hostess gift if they don’t drink—or if you don’t want to bring yet another bottle of wine? You don’t have to resort to alcohol or flowers to truly show your appreciation.
Ahead, seven genius hostess gift ideas for every kind of person—including the one who’s notoriously hard to shop for.
Who doesn’t love a tassel? This throw is neutral enough to satisfy the minimalists and fun enough for the maximalists. Plus, the 100% Turkish cotton is the perfect cozy addition to your next movie night.
Forget the wine—this is one hostess present she’ll be happy to display and use. Plus, she’ll be able to reuse the chic glass bottle once the soap is gone.
This brass tea light holder acts as a subtle diffuser of essential oil. The design is sleek and minimal and makes a statement even when it’s not in use. Plus, it comes with a 10ml bottle of Lavender essential and a little beeswax tea light candle, so it’s basically good vibes in a box.
This genuine Alabaster jar offers a little moment of joy every time we see it. It’s an elevated way to stash precious things or everyday stuff like cotton balls and paper clips—or just put it on a bookshelf as an objet d’art.
If she’s the type of friend that would appreciate fancy laundry things, this is the perfect practical/spoiling gift she’ll love. She’ll appreciate the natural basil, mandarin, and kale smell of this spray, which can be used anywhere in the home.
This hand cream set is a treat for hard-working hands—and the perfect thoughtful present for a host who’s always washing the dishes. Natural seed oils nourish skin and shea butter adds an invisible layer of protection against dryness.
Try not to stress too much about it: No matter what you bring, your friends will be happy to see you after all this time!
