One of the many things my mama taught me is to never show up to a party empty-handed. Hosting, especially during the holidays, is so much work. Even if the host/hostess says they have everything covered in terms of food and drink, a gift goes a long way in showing your appreciation.
While this year’s holiday gatherings will look a bit different than usual, showing up with a hostess gift is still a good plan. Even if you’re just going to your sister’s house for a small gathering with immediate family. Or maybe you’re hosting an intimate holiday get together and want to treat yourself! 😆
I’ve rounded up some of my favorite, unique hostess gifts below and I’m super excited to share this hostess holiday gift guide because TBH, I really think I nailed it with this one. I’d be beyond thrilled to receive any of these gifts and I know your hostess with the mostest will too!
If you're not familiar with nakedwines.com, it's an incredible way to discover talented, independent winemakers. They have a very unique model, where customers (aka "Angels") deposit $40 a month into their accounts, and this cash is then invested into the indie winemakers who are a part of nakedwines.com to create their awesome wines. All of these wines area exclusive to nakedwines.com, and the wineries don't have to worry about expensive marketing or sales costs, which means customers get insider prices at 40 - 60% off!
I especially love their social rating features on the site, and I can filter by style, grape, country, and of course rating. I've discovered some incredible wines through nakedwines.com and the rating system never steers me wrong.
This is such a great, unique gift for the hostess! Aera is a smart home fragrance diffuser and once you try it, you are legit going to use it every day. You can control the settings and intensity from your phone, or set it on a schedule like I do and wake up to delicious scents every morning. They have a huge variety of fragrances and each capsule lasts for 800 hours.
Aera just came out with their holiday gift setand the festive fragrances include: Snowfall (Noble Fir, Cedarwood, and White Freesia), Holiday Spice (Red Apple, Ginger, and Cinnamon), and Deck the Halls (Berries, Pine, and Holiday Spices). Perfect for getting in the holiday spirit! Aera fragrances are 100% pure fragrance (no harsh chemicals), so they’re safe for kids & pets.
By the time I'm halfway through my cup of coffee, it's already gotten cold. The Ember coffee cup keeps your coffee warm while you sip throughout the morning. Genius. Plus, Bed Bath & Beyond is doing 20% off right now when you subscribe to their email newsletter, so I'd suggest buying it through there!
Lucini's olive oil is made from Italian olives where the trees date back 100 years and the microclimate of the area grows some of the best olives in Italy. When you taste it you can tell how premium it is. Considering how high quality this olive oil is, their pricing is extremely reasonable. You can even get it on Amazon Prime!
These coasters are so chic and come in a few different colors. Pretty coasters are something that I don't normally buy myself, but love to have in my home! These ones are unique and eye-catching while also being neutral, so they'll go with any host's setting.
Grove Collaborative is my favorite place to shop for plant-based and sustainable household goods and beauty items. They have their own line as well as a selection of some of my other favorite brands like Mrs. Meyers, plus I like discovering new brands through Grove—I know that if it's on Grove the brand/product has already been vetted from a sustainability and health perspective.
There are so many things on Grove's site that would make for great hostess gifts, and you can either put together a custom caddy with different items like I have in this pic (I included things like dish towels, a candle, and a room spray), or if you are a new customer and spend $20, use this link to get a FREE gift that includes a few Mrs. Meyer's holiday items (hand soap, dish soap, and multi-surface spray) along with Grove's Walnut Scrubber Sponges all in a cute Grove caddy. It makes for a great hostess gift and you get to treat yourself too!
