With the changing seasons, uptick of football, and the holidays just around the corner, we’re entering the era of back-to-back get-togethers. I love this time of year because I always have so much fun hosting family and friends, as well as heading to special dinner parties.
One rule that I always like to follow? Never show up empty handed.
Whether you’re invited to a themed gathering or you’re spending Thanksgiving with relatives, it’s always nice to bring your host something special.
Something I love about hostess gifts is that they can be as elaborate or as simple as you’d like. They can also suit just about any budget, because it’s truly the thought that counts.
If you’re looking for unique yet practical hostess gift ideas, you’ve come to the right spot. Below, I’m sharing some finds that I personally would love to receive.
This pretty gold and acrylic domino set is such a classic statement piece. Not only is it a fun game to have on hand, but it also would look so chic on a coffee table.
There’s no greater hostess gift than a special set of cocktail glasses. The amber color of these coupe glasses feel so seasonally appropriate yet would look chic and sophisticated any time of the year.
This cute little glass gourd is a candle that seamlessly doubles up as decor. With notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla, this is the ideal hostess gift for a fall or thanksgiving celebration.
Dessert plates are so special, but they aren’t necessarily something that most people splurge on for themselves. This set of 12 Christmas-themed plates would surely be treasured for years to come.

A pretty cheese knife set is a classic hostess gift. These three stainless steel knives have agate handles and a gold-tone finish, making them the perfect compliment to any kitchen.
To take things up a notch, pair the knives above with this sleek cheese board. Even better: bring the board with a variety of appetizers on top, then leave it as a gift.
Any home decor love would be smitten over these vanity trays. They can be used on an entryway table, a bar cart, a nightstand, or in a bathroom. Plus, you can choose from two sizes to gift.
While a corkscrew certainly is a kitchen staple, it’s such a little luxury to have one that’s high-end. The stainless steel design on this one gives it a sleek and polished look — perfect for leaving out so you’re always host-ready.
