12 Days of Christmas: Gift Guide for the Hostess

It’s Day 2 of my 12 Days of Christmas series and I’m excited to share a Hostess Gift Guide with you today! In case you missed the inaugural post, you can find my holiday cocktail recipe here. I’ll be sharing holiday themed recipes and gift guides weekly until Christmas.

Hostess Gift GuideAs a party-goer, think about your hostess and what she’d enjoy receiving during the holiday season. A thoughtful, memorable gift will always be appreciated. If your friends have a golden retriever, these embroidered cocktail napkins make a humorous present. There are many to choose from including: a “Tipsy Longhorn,” “Drinking Bunnies” and the tennis racket napkins below. If you bring champagne, make sure it’s chilled. What’s a girl to do with warm bubbly?!

Gifts for the Host

Wine Bottle CandlesFrench Cheese Knives / Fa La La Tea Towels / Textured Glass Pitcher / Acrylic Serving Tray / Canvas Wine Bag / Artisan Board with SpreaderStag Bottle Stopper / Gold Double Old Fashioneds / 101 Cocktails BookPenguin Cocktail Shaker / Olive Oil with Gold Flakes / Tennis Cocktail Napkins / Pretzel Bottle Opener / Cards Against Humanity

A festive, reusable wine bag adds a nice touch. This Mr. & Mrs. wine bag is under $5! Unexpected gifts are great as well. Cards Against Humanity is a hilarious card game that’s tons of fun played in a large group especially after a few drinks! 🙂 Another idea is to attach a drink recipe to the glass pitcher. At only $18, there’s room to add the drink ingredients to the gift. If you’re heading to a casual game watching party, tie the pretzel bottle opener to a 6-pack with a ribbon. It’s super simple, but shows you care. Hope you enjoy my selection!
