Hi! I have another gift guide for you today. I know that these are far from original but, hopefully, you’ll find some new ideas. The holidays are fast approaching and I don’t know about you but, our calendar is filling up with parties and events. I hate to go anywhere empty handed, especially this time of year. So, here are some ideas for hostess gifts that are sure to please. And, they are all under $40!

This is the time of year for hot drinks and decadence. These chocolate dipped spoons (1) and hot chocolate stirrers (2) are an excellent addition to any hot drink. You can gift the whole package or order one of each and use them in a little gift basket with hot chocolate pouches or k-cups.
I’ve mentioned before that I am not a huge candle fan, with a couple of exceptions. The first being the seasonal rewind candle, Spiked Cider (3). These candles can be super strong, but like the Mimosa scent, this one is so delicious and so Holiday-ie (it’s a thing). The second is my all time favorite candle in the universe (6). It is Christmas in a jar. The smell of fresh cut Fraiser Fir is nothing short of incredible. You should probably order two of these and keep one for yourself–trust me.
Seth and I got an olive oil sample set as a gift (4) one year and we absolutely loved them. They are perfect for salad dressings and marinades and are something we probably never would have purchased ourselves. Get this for the host/hostess who lives to be in the kitchen.
In case you missed it, I am a huge Moscow Mule fan and I adore this gift set. Copper mugs(5) are the perfect gift for the cocktail enthusiast.
I love indoor plants (they don’t always love me) and I especially love the idea of some greenery for the cold winter months. This little windowsill garden (7) comes with everything needed to plant and grow herbs (even the soil). I think it is such a thoughtful gift for this time of year. And, for the super fun hostess, I love this planter (8) (in fact, I own it). Put a fun spiky succulent in it and I promise this gift will be a hit!
Who doesn’t love a good cheese board? I know I do! And, obviously, the person hosting the party loves to entertain. This marble and wood cheese board gift set (9) is the ultimate entertainer’s gift. It is pretty enough to keep on the counter and so useful!
