HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE | FOR THE HOSTESS


It’s almost that time of year when your calendar gets filled with holiday parties to attend and you find yourself scrambling for a hostess gift.  This year I plan on being well prepared and I’m stocking up on all kinds of goodies and sharing a gift guide that will charm any hostess with the mostess!

First things first, what is a party without a cheese board?  I’ve found a great twig cheese knife set and wooden cutting board that your host or hostess will be pleased to receive.

Cookie swaps are a holiday party favorite so I’ve listed this heavy duty marble rolling pin to help your hostess roll out her sweets with style.

The holidays are also known as the baking season.  Give your hostess a cake stand that she will enjoy displaying her baked goods on all year.

You can never have too many kitchen towels or napkins especially when hosting!  I can’t express this enough, the more linens the merrier especially when it comes to clean up time!

The hammered bowl I’ve listed would be a great base for a hostess basket.  Add in some flavored dip packets, a spreader, and crackers or create your own gift basket with other food items.

Wine stoppers are a party must have to keep wine from spillage and spoilage! Any host/hostess would love you to bring a bottle with this cute stopper attached and don’t forget the coasters!  You may have heard that funny saying “use a coaster and nobody gets hurt” but the truth is we really should be respectful of our host/hostesses homes. Give your host/hostess a nice set of coasters that will coax their guests into actually using them.  They will be much obliged, trust me!

Sometimes when hosting a party it’s easy to get so caught up in the meal planning and preparing that you forget to pick up after party necessities like dish soap or counter spray.  I’ve listed one of my favorite chemical-free household cleaners in this yummy holiday scent. They also have soy-based candles which I think complete the set.  While I’ve listed links for the individual products below, I also wanted to take the opportunity to introduce you to Grove Collaborative.  This is a great company that offers all natural products in everything from cleaners to beauty products at discounted prices.  If you’re interested in signing up, click this link here to receive a $10.00 credit for signing up!

While these are just a few suggestions for hostess gifts, I encourage you to check out the Target dollar section, Michael’s quick grab items, and World Market for little knick-knacks that you may be able to group together and use as gifts.  I like to keep a small stockpile handy just in case.  You never know when you may get a last minute invite.

I hope this post was helpful and as always thanks for reading!  Please feel free to list any host/hostess gift ideas you may have in the comments!

Cheers-  Ashley Nicole

  • Ok guys it’s “Friday night and I feel alright” 🎶 Name that song! Go! P.S. I’ll give you a little hint, it’s from the 90’s and it’s not by Michael Jordan.... Let’s see if you can guess 😏
  • This midi dress is “The Love of my Life” no really that’s what it’s called and it’s such a good staple. P.S. It now comes in mustard! 💛

  • I love stripes and have literally been gravitating towards them for everything in my wardrobe lately! So does this make me part zebra or tiger? 🤷🏼‍♀️❤️🦓 🐅

P.S. I’ve also been loving layered necklaces! You can shop this look via @LIKEtoKNOW.it or @21buttons_us •

  • Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing Moms out there! 
Yesterday on the blog, I put a super simple DIY tutorial on framed greenery. These also make pretty gifts in case you need to pull together a last minute Mother’s Day present. Wishing y’all the best Sunday! 🌿❤️

  • Instagram would “succ” if it weren’t for you! Seriously guys, I mean it! I’m so thankful for you and your kind words, patience, and support! Thank you so much for following, liking, commenting, and interacting with my stories! Allowing me to get to know you as well as getting to know a little more about myself too if I’m honest! Thank you for being there, keeping me alive much like these succulents and helping me grow! Doing this is a learning process, but if it weren’t for you, I would have never found my true passion as a creator and for that I will forever be thankful! ❤️❤️❤️ .

  • I’ve been on a straw, raffia, and rattan binge here lately. I love the raw textures and natural colors. They also double as a pretty accessory lying around as home decor. What are your thoughts on this trend? 
Also, this cute jump suit was a steal under $30 and it comes in black!

  • Another lovely Farmer’s Market pic from this weekend! They have seriously upped their game on presentation and I really wanted that cool planter for my herbs! No I didn’t buy it (props only), but wouldn’t mind finding/buying one similar and stashing it in my office/craft room for 3 years before I actually put it to use... 😂 #vintagefinds #hoarder #guilty
