A collection of curated holiday hostess gift ideas that can be mixed and matched or gifted on their own! Most of these ideas work year-round and may even be items you want to add to your own wish list!
Today is my first holiday gift guide of the year! I always love to start with the hostess gift guides because I find the ideas can work regardless of holiday or season. It may also give you some fun ideas for your own personal list! This list will likely work well for for those that love entertaining, home decor food, and drinks, as well. For the home lover like me, this is always a fun list to put together! Today, I’m sharing my holiday hostess gift ideas!

Holiday Hostess Gift Ideas
SOURCES: Stoneware Canisters | Cheese Markers | Candle Wick Trimmer | Vintage Botanical Matchbox | Gold Muffin Tin | Guacamole Serving Dish Set | Box Fox Gift Box | Buffalo Check Tray | Olive Wreath | Glazed Plate | Striped Hand Towels | Corkcicle Pour | Set of Two Rocks Glasses | Gold Cheese Knives Set | Wine Bottle Bag (set of two) | Alphabet Marble Wine Stopper | Alphabet Marble & Wood Coasters | Frosted Gingerbread Hand Soap | Vanilla Bourbon Hand Soap | Thymes Frasier Fir Candle
You can make any of these items feel special with some pretty holiday ribbon (no need to gift wrap)! I’m also a fan of taking several of these smaller items, placing them on a tray or in a basket, and then wrapping it with clear cellophane and cute ribbon!
Additional Details for Each of the Hostess Gifts
Following are even more ideas and details for each of the hostess gifts shared above.
Stoneware Canisters – These pretty stoneware canisters come in three sizes and would be fun to gift as is, or filled with the hosts favorite wrapped candies or treats!
Cheese Markers – I’m not even sure these will make it to my Christmas list this year, because I want them so badly I may just buy them for myself! I can’t risk a sellout! I typically use erasable chalkboard picks, but I love the more formal vibe of these. Not to mention, there’s no prep work required with these! These are another fun option for someone who enjoys a wider variety of cheese!
Guacamole Serving Dish Set – I mean, does this one even need an explanation? 😉
Box Fox Gift Box – This little gift box is filled with all sorts of luxuries and the wrapping is already ready for you thanks to the cute box and bow! Candy, chocolate, a fancy candle, Pinch emergency kit (love these), and a Corkcicle stemless wine glass. Since this gift box is on the pricier side, you could actually break this into several gifts, too, if you wanted to!
Buffalo Check Tray – Fun to use with homemade treats or on it’s own!
Olive Wreath – I love fresh wreaths during the holidays! This olive wreath is both classic and on trend. I love that it can be easily dried to use for future years, as well!
Glazed Plate – I love the organic shape and speckled finish on this glazed plate! Perfect to gift as a set or to use on its own with treats. You can also use it as a base for other small gifts!
Striped Hand Towels – These hand towels have a very Studio McGee vibe at a fraction of the cost! Gift them alone or use them as “wrapping paper” for another item!
Corkcicle Pour – We’ve had an original Corkcicle for years, but I love that this one keeps your wine cold and also aerates and pours! Perfect for the white wine lovers in your life!
Set of Two Rocks Glasses – For the whiskey or craft cocktail lovers in your life, these rocks glass are designed to hold any size of ice cube (including those giant balls)! They make any drink feel much more special!
Gold Cheese Knives Set – This one is actually going on my personal wish list too!
Wine Bottle Bag (set of two) – Dress up the bottle of wine or champagne you bought for the hosts with one of these cute linen wine bottle bags!
Alphabet Marble & Wood Coasters & Wine Stopper – We have these coasters and love them! It’s a fun way to personalize a gift without it being over the top. And if you don’t love the wood initials, be sure to also checkout these all marble coasters (they also now come in black marble for a masculine vibe). We own these too, and I love the lip around the edge to prevents slips!
Frosted Gingerbread and Vanilla Bourbon Hand Soap – This is by far my favorite brand of hand soaps! They never dry our your hands, and the fragrances are all so good. While the everyday scents are great too, it’s always fun to gift some of the holiday versions this time of year!
Thymes Frasier Fir Candle – This has been my favorite holiday candle for years and I have yet to find someone that doesn’t like the scent! It’s especially great for faux tree owners that crave that fresh tree scent. And if you’re not sure if your hosts will love the traditionally packaging, this faux bois vessel is so pretty in person! I have a few shapes and sizes of it!
For easy reference, I’ve added a new section to my blog under the “SHOP” heading in my menu bar for Christmas. It will give you easy access to all of my holiday gift guides, fashion and home decor posts!
