The holiday party season is upon us, this means you may need to think about bringing a hostess gift to an event you are attending! Although it is common to bring a bottle of wine to an event as a hostess gift, this is really getting boring. Do you want to be that pedestrian? Plus, what if the host does not drink? Wine could actually be a bad gift!
So what is a fashionable party guest to do? Never fear, Santana Row is here! I have partnered with my favorite Bay Area shopping destination to bring you new hostess gift ideas which do not involve alcohol. Love that!
There are so many options when it comes to hostess gifts this holiday season. Scroll down to see my picks from Santana Row for the perfect hostess gift this holiday party season!
Anthropologie is a fabulous destination for Hostess gifts this holiday season. The store is jam-packed with table top decor, home decor and gift items. For the hostess, why not present her with a warm and cozy blanket she can keep for after the party? The day after she hosts a party she will be tired from all that entertaining and appreciate a new, cozy blanket to snuggle up on the sofa with while she relaxes and reminisces about how she just threw the party of the year.
If a blanket does not seem like your hostess’s thing, why not a personalized mug! Everyone needs a mug, and she will be receiving one she can enjoy hot cocoa in this cold weather season, or wake up to with a warm cup of coffee.
Please visit the Anthropologie store at Santana Row or call 408.249.0436.
C. Wonder is a fabulous destination for gifts all year long. Therefore, it is only natural that it is a one-stop-shop for gifts this holiday season! In addition to holiday gifts, it is the perfect place to go to find the ideal hostess gift. Since everyone else is bringing wine (yawn), why not bring a bottle stopper? Or a pie stand with a box of cookies from Cocola? Monogram gifts are on-trend this season and these cute little dishes are perfect for the hostess on your list. My picks from C. Wonder are featured above, but there is plenty more in store!
Please visit C. Wonder at Santana Row or call 408.246.1754 for more information.

Paper Source is a fun place to find cards, wrapping paper, and gifts for the holiday season. They also have a great selection of hostess gifts. I love the mugs pictured above.

Z Gallerie is always a good place to find gifts for the home decor enthusiast on your list. Why not bring your hostess an unique cutting board which can also double as something to display on a kitchen shelf? The fabulous cutting board pictured above will make your hostess’s jaw drop! Or, why not give her a fabulous trinket box! You can write, and then roll up, a thank you note for the party invitation and place it inside the trinket box before you give it to her. She will love the surprise when she opens it!
