She’s dutifully planned the perfect holiday hobnob, complete with all the trimmings. As you’re picking up presents for your family and friends, don’t forget your loving host, without whom your favorite pumpkin chiffon pie would not have been baked.
Ahead, the holiday gifts that acknowledge her effort and ensure you get a standing invitation—if not an extra slice.
Wrap your weekend host in luxurious comfort. This sumptuous throw by UGG adds warmth to any space and pairs perfectly with a wintry Netflix marathon. Your host will thank you for glamorously outfitting her next streaming session.
For the master mixologist, give the gift 200 delicious concoctions from around the world. With The Cocktail, your party-throwing pal can impress her guests with fabulous cocktails for any and every occasion—not to mention, the book will look darling on her bar cart.
Having tended to her guests for days on end, your host is long overdue for some “me time.” Pamper her with a detoxifying face mask that will purge her holiday stressors or a decadent hand cream to soothe her cuticles after weeks of prepping tasty treats.
A premium candle is a versatile gift that will be appreciated by all hosts. Nest’s Holiday Classic scent is a great way to thank your boss’s wife for hosting the office soirée. For something zesty but no less festive, Jo Malone’s holiday candle is also an instant crowd pleaser.
For the queen of charcuterie, pick up a set of gilded cheese knives to adorn her hearty spread. Any connoisseur will appreciate The Book of Cheese or a cheesy ornament for the tree; both gifts demonstrate how much you appreciate her—and her love of Camembert.
A thoughtful ornament is simple and sweet, and will delight any host. Pick up travel-themed trimmings to commemorate her latest jet-set or dream destination.
Food with Friends will inspire your host with easy-to-make nibbles and cocktails, which will taste even better out of bronze-rimmed tumblers. This handsome set is easy to incorporate with any place setting and guarantees a jovial “cheers!”
