Great Holiday Gifts for the Host

Whether it’s a holiday dinner party, a brunch, or even just a cocktail party, you’ll want to bring your host a little something to say thank you for all the hard work. Here are some gift ideas that will wow any party host this holiday season – all for less than $25!

  • BREAKFAST BASKET

After cooking for the party all day, the last thing a host wants to do is make themselves breakfast the next morning. Help them out with a breakfast basket!

Buy an inexpensive basket and fill it with some tasty breakfast muffins, scones, or breads (that can easily be reheated) and a nice jam.

Add a couple of pretty cloth napkins and some tea or coffee and you’ll have a breakfast basket that will make your host look forward to the morning.

  • BREAD WARMER

There’s nothing like warm bread fresh out of the oven. Unfortunately, it’s not so easy for a host to keep warming up bread for their guests while they’re trying to host a party. A bread warming stone can solve that problem. Most are less than $20 (some less than 10!), so you can afford to bring some bread and a basket to go along with it.

  • GARLIC GRATER AND OIL DIPPING DISH

Nothing goes better with warm bread than a little seasoned olive oil! Give your host this beautiful garlic grater and oil dipping dish as a gift, and both your host, and their guests, will thank you.

  • GLASS ACCESSORIES

Every host needs some glass accessories to help distinguish their guests glasses. These wine charms are an adorable option for a cat-loving host.

These are my favorite glass accessories because they work for any drink, not just wine.

No one should have to choose between drinks and food, and these mingling trays can make sure no one ever will!

  • CAKE OR PIE SERVER

Dessert is (arguably) the best part of any meal and it deserves a beautiful presentation. If you’re bringing a cake, pie, or cupcakes to the party, consider bringing it on a pretty dessert tray that the host can keep. A cake stand is one of those items that people rarely buy for themselves, but can be incredibly useful once you own it.
