I was going to wait until next week to share my official first Gift Guide of the season, but with Thanksgiving next week, I thought this one would be beneficial! While not necessary, I completely believe in giving the hostess a small happy to show my appreciation for being so gracious. Hosting is a lot of work after all! Plus, it doesn’t have to be expensive. I always try to keep a hostess gift around $15-$20 dollars and I’ve rounded up some great options above under $25! I know the candle is $27, but I love love love Capri Blue Candles, they smell so amazing and I love how Anthropolgie has mini ones for $12.00. They have been my go-to hostess gift lately with a pack of matches. Who doesn’t love burning amazing candles (and the holiday scent is so so good).
I also read an article once that mentioned taking donuts or a casserole for the following morning is a nice touch. That way after a long night of hosting, it’s one less meal they have to worry about! The only trick with that is making sure they don’t have morning plans the next day! That’s why I always stick to a little happy!
A few weeks ago when we hosted our Pumpkin Party, my friend Hope brought me a wine bottle with a Halloween sock over it. She then used the other sock to tie a bow around the neck of the bottle. I thought it was clever and cute! Here is an example if you’re more visual. See what I mean? Affordable, cute and thoughtful.
Don’t forget your hosts this season! Of course, if you’re not hosting, you can also just choose to treat yo self!
