As the Holidays near, I am looking forward to spending extra time with family and friends.  Fortunately for me (unfortunately for my waistline) this usually includes lots of wonderful holiday inspired food and drinks.  While I love to partake in these holiday festivities, I never like to attend empty handed.  Growing up in the South, the necessity of bringing a hostess gift was ingrained in me, practically from birth.

In short, I always on the lookout for a great hostess gift.  I love these ideas. All under $40.  A perfect way to wow your host without breaking the bank.  You can thank me later!

Williams Sonoma Hot Chocolate and Gourmet Marshmallows $38

If you have never indulged in Williams Sonoma’s hot chocolate, you are in for a treat.  It is think, creamy and ultra-delicious!  It will leave your host or hostess with a good taste in their mouth-literally!

Large Slate Cheese Board $26

No holiday party is complete without a great cheese board.  This one is lovely and you can write on it with chalk to let your guest know what cheese they are eating.  Brilliant!

Monogrammed Wine Decanter $36

I love monogrammed items.  They are both personal to give and to receive.  This is a beautiful aerating decanter that any host would be proud to display.

Evergreen Sapling $39

This evergreen sapling that your host can choose to decorate with tiny ornament or leave unadorned.

Apron $34

I love this cute apple apron.  It is the right colors to go with holiday attire but it can also be worn year round.

Rose Gold Coasters $32

These rose gold coasters are as beautiful as they are practical.  Made from slate, they are truly a style statement.

Guest Soap Box  $26

These beautiful guest soap boxes are colorful and beautifully presented.  They almost look good enough to eat.

Holiday Towels $24

I love these Thanksgiving gift towels.  A perfect sentiment for the season.

Sea Salted Caramel $32

These are one of my favorite things at Nordstrom.  If you know how much I love Nordstrom, you know that these chocolates must be REALLY amazing.  They are just the perfect amount of salty and sweet.  Sure to be a favorite of yours too. (Don’t get the smoked by mistake—they are not as good).

Personalized Holiday Stamp $24

I would personally love to receive this time saver.  Help your host to make their holiday cards look amazing with a personalized self-inking stamp. It is a gift that keeps on giving year after year.

I hope that you found these hostess gift selections helpful.  What fun events are you attending this holiday season?  What is the best hostess gift you have ever received?  Leave a comment below or email me at bella@budgtfriendlyluxury.com.

Happy Shopping!
