Host Gift Ideas for the Home

25 beautiful hostess and host gift ideas for the home like serving ware, kitchen tools, decor, food, drink, and entertaining finds.

We have a nickname for the 4 weeks before Christmas: Partymonium.

With all of the dinners, parties, friend gatherings, and gift exchange festivities that happen in December, it really is a crammed calendar of pandemonium. And for each one, we never show up empty-handed.

A lot of times, we’ll get an invite last minute to a gathering or we’ll remember literally hours before, “Oh! We have that thing to go to!”

So I keep a few host and hostess gifts on hand for such an occasion. (And if we end up not gifting the items, I might keep them for myself… don’t tell, okay?)

These are a few of my favorite host gift ideas to give (or keep).

Gifts for Hosts Under $25

1. Cake Stand

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more stunning cake stand. Bring it to a Christmas party with a cake on top and leave the stand with the host as the gift.

2. Primrose Picture Frame Ornament

By far my favorite picture frame ornament modeled after the “famous” vintage style Primrose mirror.

3. Tea Towels

It’s hard to go wrong with classic tea towels that you know will always get a lot of use. These are lovely but simple enough to go with just about any kitchen decor in a host’s home.

4. Oil and Vinegar Dispenser Bottle

How interesting is this olive oil and balsamic vinegar dispenser!

5. Meadowsweet Set of Teaspoons

The frilly detail on the handles of these teaspoons feel extra special. They would be great to pair with the tea towels above if you wanted to make it a gift set.

6. Tea Forte Sampler

Seriously the best tea, and these holiday spice flavors are so good to sip in the cold weather.

7. After Dinner Trivia

A little entertainment to help conversation along before, during, or after dinner.

8. Marble Cheese Slicer

I dare you to work the phrase “cut the cheese” into conversation with this gift. No, don’t. Maybe read the room first. 😂 Anyways, it’s a pretty way to cut…er slice… the cheese.

9. Bee Harmony Honey Flight

A sweet host gift (literally) with 4 different flavored raw honey varieties. Gift it on its own or with a little brie cheese, tea, or this pretty honey dipper set.

10. Pan Stirrer

So many “stir the pot” puns. Must resist. This gadget really is neat to help you stir ingredients as you’re cooking when you need your hands free for other cooking tasks.

11. The Cheese Board Deck

50 beautiful cards with inspiration for styling serving boards of all kinds. Package it with this $10 serve board if you want to pair it with another item.

12. Let’s Get Fizzical Cocktail Recipe Book

This book breaks down classic cocktail recipes with new twists and includes drink making tips with beautiful photography and suggestions for presentation.

13. Stone Salt Agate Coasters

Love these pretty coasters, and you could pair them with the cocktail recipe book if you wanted to make them a set.

Gifts for Hosts Under $75

1. Marble Wine Chiller

A great one to give to any wine enthusiasts to keep wine or champagne chilled through dinner. It would work well as a vase or utensil crock too.

2. Avaline Wine Trio

Clean wines made from organic grapes with no added colors, concentrates, or unnecessary sugars. Gift them as a set of 3 or separate them for different hosts. Get $25 off here.

3. 7-Piece Mixologist Set

I would never guess this bar set came from Walmart! It looks like something straight out of Williams-Sonoma, and I love the utensil block.

4. Urban Stems Bouquet

Urban Stems produce some of my favorite flower arrangements (right up there with Farmgirl Flowers and The Bouqs).

5. State Spoon Rest

So cute to personalize based on the host’s home state!

6. Thymes Sink Set

Gotta love a yummy smelling hand soap and lotion set, especially in winter.

7. Gourmet Oil Dipping Spice Kit

Deliver this with a crusty loaf of bread, and you’re in business.

8. Bread Warming Blanket

If you’re a bread baker, this bread blanket will keep it warm and fresh. Deliver your fresh bread wrap up with this to the hosts for them to keep.

9. Capri Blue Winter Hearthside Candle

Hands down the best smelling candle ever!

10. Riverbed Vase

The perfect vase for making flower arranging a breeze.

11. Cotton Muslin Throw Blanket

This blanket is so super soft and lightweight, you’ll probably want one for yourself.
