17 Best Gifts for the Hostess In Your Life

For most of us, this holiday season will look different and likely involve less intermingling than we're used to. But, if you're merging bubbles this holiday season, don't forget to spare a thought for the host or hostess doing all the extra work to ensure friends and family have a seasonal soiree in the safest way possible!

Those who help us celebrate, feast together, and cherish each other –– who deserves a great gift more than these folks? Nobody! And that goes double if the hostess is you (because you're juggling a lot, including your role as a risk mitigator and cheerful party planner). The tradition of a hostess gift is how we show our appreciation for the difficult and generous work of hosting.

Whether you're looking to up your hostess game, or you want to find gracious gift ideas to thank the hosts and hostesses who'll make this holiday season shine (even over Zoom), you're in the right place. We've stocked our holiday Gift Shop and included here some perfect hostess gift ideas for all kinds of different hosts: the festive foodie, the dinner party hostess, the candle fan, the cocktail party aficionado, and more!

This year, enjoy giving (and getting) unique hostess gifts that keep on giving. Spread the cheer!
