For The Hostess With The Mostest

'Tis the season to be a little extra


3 Unexpected & Elegant Host(ess) Gifts

Believe it or not, the 2020 holiday season is officially upon us. And while our festive gatherings may be a little smaller this year (or even virtual), we’re not skipping the annual tradition of showing our friends and family how much we appreciate them and their hospitality.

Here are three beautiful, useful, and surprisingly lavish ways to say, “Thanks for having me.”

A set of wine charms

A bottle of wine is nice, but what’s more over-the-top than some jewelry for that wine? A set of wine charms makes a super thoughtful host(ess) gift, as it’s something that can be opened and used in the moment—but also something the recipient will enjoy for years. Best of all, they come in a wide range of styles and at different price points, so you can get as luxe as you want to. (For example, how gorgeous are these?)


Premium olive oil & vinegar

We love a common pantry item too beautiful to be kept in the pantry. This brand makes seriously chic bottles that beg to be displayed—and yes, they taste as good as they look. Add a loaf of fresh bread for dipping, and you’ve got a delicious start to the evening.


A mood-enhancing candle

Bring some ambience to the party with a luxury candle custom blended to unleash the emotional side of scent. You could go classic with Reveler’s festive, fresh-cut fragrance, or warm and cozy with Homebody. But for an unexpected air of elegance, we recommend Royal. The rich, opulent blend of ripe plum, dark cassis and floral iris will enchant all members of the court—and your inner circle.
