Great holiday host/hostess gifts for any budget

'Tis the season. As the leaves change color and the weather cools off, holiday entertaining comes back to the forefront. From Halloween housewarmings to Thanksgiving dinners, it’s always a nice gesture to bring a small token of appreciation for your host.

Whether your host is the chef-in-training in your group or just loves any excuse to deck the house in pumpkins or holly, here are some easy gift ideas that won’t blow your Christmas shopping budget before December.

Unique vase

We’ve all heard the go-to host gift is a bouquet of flowers. Step it up a notch with a fun vase that can be used after the flowers have seen better days. Makers like 8 Oak Lane have options for every style, including a darling "JOY" trio perfect for singing carols all around.

Handcrafted chip-and-dip platter

A few interesting dips and chips have saved many parties from #sadsnacks territory. Elevate your host’s serving game with Casafina, particularly its combination chip-and-dip options handcrafted by European artisans. Each stoneware piece can be shown off like a centerpiece and is sure to quickly become the host’s favorite entertaining essential.

Fragrant candle

Nothing beats the aroma of apple pie baking in the oven or stew simmering on the stove. But a heavenly scented candle comes awfully close! A great option from Thymes is a cider-scented candle in a copper pot that can be reused as a votive holder after the original wax is burned through. 

Festive napkins

Whether they are paper or fabric, festive napkins are great for the host who entertains often. Cute sayings may inspire that next tablescape while more seasonal designs can be used over and over. Mary Lake Thompson, C.R. Gibson and Caspari all create napkins that are the perfect accent.

Handmade charcuterie board

For an extra-special host, purchase a few artisanal jams, meats, cheeses and other accouterments for display on an Andrew Pearce handcrafted wood board. Add a Simon Pearce glass bowl for a truly wonderful thank you.

From intimate gatherings and huge family, holidays these gifts add a bit of joy and appreciation to the occasion. Need more inspiration? Browse thousands of gifting options on or visit our flagship store in Regency!
