It's that time ladies! Gift Guide Week! I've been busy searching for the perfect gifts for everyone and having so much fun with it. Since a lot of people will be hosting the holidays in the next couple weeks I'm kicking off the week with the hostess gift ideas. I've included some this year that are also great home decor items and I'll share how to make them a great hostess gift as well because who doesn't love something they can use year after year.

I either own some of these items or have them on my list to get as hostess gifts and decor for my home this year. I'll include links below so you can shop these items and have them delivered right to your door! So what are we waiting for? Let's get this started!

2. There is just something about magnolia wreaths and garland at the holidays that make everything look so elegant. Terrain makes beautiful live wreaths that you can have delivered to your home. Or if you're lucky enough to live near a Terrain store I suggest you check it out because it's one of the most amazing places I've been to. This is an unexpected hostess gift but one that I think would be greatly appreciated. I know I would love it!

3. Another great Target item are these brass bells which come in a set of 1 or 3. Add a cute hang tag and a red plaid ribbon for the hostess. I've seen them added to a wreath here and it looked beautiful.

4. I have a similar set of metal reindeer like these from a couple of years ago that I still love year after year. They move around my house from table decor to the mantle. You'll never know where they end up. Our elf likes to ride on them too! Add a cute little ribbon to their neck and give as a set.

5. I saw these trays in Target the other day and thought they were so cute. Add some homemade cookies or some cute mugs with hot chocolate to take along as a hostess gift. And they're only 9.99!! 

6. Plaid Pendelton blankets are amazing! The hard part will be choosing which pattern to pick. Add a monogram for an extra special touch.

7. I spotted these cute little plates at ModCloth and thought they would make the cutest hostess gift. They have a couple different designs to choose from too.

8. Hands down probably one of my favorite hostess gifts to give is these embroidered cocktail napkins. They come in a set of 4 and you can choose from a couple clever designs. If you live locally Trellis Home in Hingham carries them in their shop. If not you can find them here too

9. Make a 6 pack classy with a cute bottle opener tied to the package

10. I absolutely love these gold hammered stemless wine glasses. They're on sale right now at World Market but you can sometimes score them at Homegoods too. Add 4 of them to a cute Sugar Paper box from Target and wrap a pretty ribbon around the box (gift wrapping ideas coming next week)

11. This marble and brass cheese knife set is the perfect little hostess gift. Pair with some of your favorite cheeses if you're bringing an appetizer. 

12. I discovered this candle company on Instagram and really enjoyed looking at the pictures of how they make these soy candles. From their site: Candles are poured in batches of 9 or 10. Each candle, from wicking to wax melting to pouring and wick-cutting, is created with the utmost care and precision. Known for their fresh, calming botanical fragrances and vintage inspired packaging, these candles can be found sitting on the chicest of coffee tables, nightstands, and mantles all over the world. 

13. And the hostess always needs ice to keep the cocktails cold! 

Another favorite gift idea are these BOX fox boxes. Ideas for everyone on your list including cute hostess gift ideas like this EAT // SWEET one

I hope yo enjoyed these gift ideas and I can't wait to share the rest with you this week.

  1. If you want a set of wind chimes for your home or to give as a gift but don’t want to spend the kind of money necessary for a top-end set, these bamboo wind chimes could be a perfect alternative. Know more from
