  1. Bring a party to the party with the gift of a game. Incorporate playing as a part of your annual traditions and it will be warmly remembered year after year. Best yet, a decorative game board can double dip as a unique coffee table accessory. {Monogrammed Chinese Checkers Set by Mark and Graham, $68.00} 
  2. For the proclaimed foodie in your life, spice up their season with a set of unique condiments, sauces or spices. The more adventurous their taste buds, the more fun you can have with this idea. If your holiday events take you out-of-town, consider gifting your host a sampling of your hometown’s signature flavors. {Seasoning Blends Gift Set by Sur La Table, $45.00}  
  3. Usher in the holiday spirit at your hostess’ house with the gift of a decorative seasonal wreath. A piece made with branches and greenery not only adds a festive flair, but the neutral color palette won’t clash with their home’s style or holiday decor. {Succulent Foliage Wreath by AKS Designs Floral, $52} 
  4. Entertaining can without a doubt be an exhausting feat. What better way to help your host wind down after a whirlwind day {or weekend!} then with a set of soothing bath salts? Their tired feet and muscles will be effervescently thanking you. {Bath Soaks by Cape May Soap Company, $16 each}
  5. ’Tis the season of celebration and many a toasts will be made. Enhance your host’s kitchen utensil entourage with bar essentials, like this sleek set of bar tools. In my opinion, nothing pairs better with good food and good company than a perfectly crafted holiday cocktail. Cheers to that! {Bar Tool Set by Crate & Barrel, $79.95} 

Graciously say “thank you” for your friends and family’s hospitality with a tailored hostess gift idea that sends a statement. The extra special thought you put in will be met with a happy and touched heart.
