The holiday party season is about to begin! This means we all need to be prepared for those festive invitations to start rolling in. Nothing is worse, or more rude, then showing up to a holiday party empty handed; we need to arrive with creative holiday hostess gifts!
A bottle of wine or a bottle of champagne is the most boring, and expected, holiday hostess gift you can give. Not only does it show you were unprepared, and just grabbed something from your cellar, it can be deemed rude if your hostess does not drink alcohol. Yikes! Talk about a social faux-pas. For shame!
Holiday hostess gifts under $75 can turn out to be the perfect show of appreciation when you arrive at a party this season. The party hostess will appreciate the thought you put into the gift, as well as not being handed yet another bottle of wine; which s/he may not even drink.
There are a few types of holiday hostess gifts I enjoy giving when I arrive at a holiday party. I love to give gourmet food such as this mini bundt cake set or this nuts and dried fruit set. (I always make there aren’t any nut allergies before giving this one!) Candles, home fragrance, and coaster sets also make great hostess gifts for the holidays.

Luxurious holiday hostess gifts
I try not to think about trying to impress a party hostess with an expensive gift. If the hostess is a close family member, or one of my best friends, I tend to spend more on the gift simply because the person means a lot to me. For most parties, the perfect holiday hostess gift can be found under $75 and the hostess will love it! Plus, it is less likely the hostess will “price” the gift in his or her mind as she or he would with a bottle of wine. Cheap wine is always detected; especially if the receiver is a wine connoisseur.
What are your favorite holiday hostess gifts to give during the festive, holiday season?
