Hostess Gift Ideas (Under $50)

Good day, Embarquers!

One of my girl friends and I were talking about how sometimes it’s difficult to figure out what to get a host -and no, I most definitely am not talking about the generic bottle of wine- although, a lovely bottle of wine is always welcome in my home. 😉

I’ve decided to put together a list of ideas that use for the next party you’re attending:


Herb Garden KitWilliams Sonoma ($30)

This kit contains the containers, so I would go to your local home improvement store and pick up packet of seeds and soil disks

herb kit



Cheese ($35)




Spa Kit- ($38)

Who doesn’t enjoy a nice aromatherapy set?



Board or Card ($25)

(Please only give this gift to someone that has a good sense of humor)




The Ultimate Cocktail Bar ($40)

This is the only pocketknife of your minibar will ever need. I think we all have someone in our lives who would appreciate a device like this.



Personalized Cookbook- ($18)

There are thousands of cookbooks out there and only one you want to give to your host(ess)… Pick something that is straight to the heart of that person.

For example, if you’re going to a party being thrown by an amateur mixologist, then pick a highly rated recipe book full of inventive recipes.




Spice ($38)

If your host knows their way around the kitchen, they will LOVE using these spices in their next dish. I’ve given these to my Mom and she loves how they take her meals to the next level.

Penzey's Spices




Keep this list in mind the next time you are invited to someone’s home for an intimate gathering. There’s a very good chance you’ll be invited back 😉


With Love,
