Gift Ideas for Home & Host

By Kate Riley November 24, 2018

I’ve been invited to two holiday parties this season and I want to bring my friends something special beyond just a bottle of wine or baked good. I hate to show up empty handed, so with the continuation of sharing gift ideas this week, I present some ideas to give a host or hostess that they will use long after the season is over!

Here are some favorite things for the home with suggestions for adding a personal touch:

Insert gourmet coffee beans or mulled wine spices into these tiled monogram mugs.

Add flavor to their life with a marbled salt keeper and specialty sea salt.

Wrap homemade loaf cake in these metallic dot napkins.

Pair an aged spirit with a set of these double old fashioned glasses.



Surprise a chef with edible flower seed bombs in a gold cylinder pot.

Add a blooming amaryllis to one of these gray stripe planters.

You can’t go wrong with an embossed olive oil bottle and a quality EVOO.

Guarantee a lovely scent will fill their home with this iridescent capri candle.



Gift a trio of cheeses and an herb bouquet with this unique monogram cheese board.

Partner any savory snack in a gift box with the rustic olivewood serving bowl.

They will never be without a light with a chic mini ceramic match jar on display.

Tuck a special vino with the clever wineaux sack towel inside a gift bag.


More gift ideas coming soon!




  1. Thank you for these ideas. I am looking for alternatives to cookie platters for the neighbors, and you have given me lots of food for thought.

    • Thanks! Isn’t it nice to be a hint more creative if you get the chance?
      Glad you liked my ideas. :)

  2. The tiled mugs are adorable and unique! I have just started holiday shopping and I’m going to keep these in mind. Thank you for the ideas.
