21 Host Gifts That WOW

How to
Etiquette

These are a few of our favorite things!

And one of our preferred ways of saying thank you

A small gift is the perfect way to say thank you for the time and the thought your host has put into their party. I mean, who doesn't get giddy over a surprise little something? But we do know it's not the easiest to come up with something special to give! So we’ve put together a list of go-to gifts that will have your friends fawning over your excellent taste.

Cocktail napkins

These novel napkins are guaranteed to brighten up any table and put a smile on your host’s face!

Toile Napkins
Scalamandre Zebra Napkins
Champagne Bottle Napkins (Or These!)

Entertainment

We love a gift that keep on giving. These games will bring hours of entertainment to all of your host’s parties!

Art Oracles
Puzzles
Conversation Cards Like Convers(ate), Done with 2020, Camp Cards, And We’re Not Really Strangers

Candles

A person can never have too many candles – that’s just not a thing! There are so many gorgeous jars and scents to choose from these days, but here are some of our faves!
(To stretch your budget even further, purchase a gift set and break it up into individual candles to gift one at a time!)

Volupsa Candle Gift Set
Brooklyn Candle Co’s Mini Candle Sets
Public Good’s Small Size Candles
Jo Malone’s Travel Size Candle Set
Paper Source Floral Candle Set

Matchboxes

These match accessories make a great pair with a candle or even on their own!

Large Match Ginger Jar Box
Light Will Come Match Jar
Match Striker

Tea towels

Tea towels are another wonderful gift your host will be able to use long after the party ends. With thousands of designs to choose from, you can shop for a style specific to your party’s theme, or choose from our favorites below – great for any occasion!
(You can use tea towels as “wrapping paper,” too!)

Monarchs
Herbs
Plaid

Sweet and sundry

And we couldn’t resist sharing just a few more sweet little gifts. We may or may not have bought all of these for ourselves! (I mean, those cute little gnomes? COME ON!)

Great Quotes From Great Women Book
Gnome Incense Holders
Pretty Bottle Opener Natural
Stone Whiskey Cubes

Voila! You can bet you’ll get an invite back after you thank your hostess with one of these ideas. Remember, a little thought goes a long way. Your hostess will never expect a gift in return, but you know she’ll appreciate the extra love. Cheers!
