With the season of parties and hosting coming up, I wanted to share a few of my favorite hostess gift ideas with you to bring along. The Valley has some great gift shops, florists and quality grocery stores, so you won’t have to travel far to find a quick, thoughtful gift.
Housewares: Think candles, candle holders, charcuterie serving boards, decorative hand towels, unique coasters or throw blankets and pillows. Try to find these items that feature a seasonal touch!
Wine: Another easy, go-to gift that your host can enjoy this holiday season.
Books: There are many beautiful coffee table books that can be conversation pieces as well as art in the home. Try to pick one that features your hostess’s favorite hobby, musical artist or travel destination.
Fresh Flowers or House Plants: Stop by a local florist or greenhouse and wow your host with a colorful bouquet in a pretty vase or a unique houseplant they can have for years to come.
Food Gifts: A few of my favorites are local honey, maple syrup and candies or chocolates that feature elaborate packaging. Another option for a food-themed gift is a curated assortment of gourmet crackers, cheeses and meats.
