Have you started your holiday shopping yet? I always spend way too much time looking for gifts because I need to find the perfect thing for each person on my list. Gift giving can be so stressful, so I tried to make it easier for you! This year, I rounded up the best gifts for friends or family members who love to entertain and host at their home. All of the items I’m recommending I either personally own, successfully gifted to others or have on my own wish list.
These modern candle holders would look so pretty as part of a centerpiece or to style a buffet table. Gray and gold match any home and work throughout the whole year, so you can’t go wrong.
If you know me, you know I’m obsessed with Veuve Clicquot. I always look forward to attending their annual polo match at Liberty State Park in New Jersey, and it’s the chicest event of the year between the fashion, the gorgeous tents and the champagne, of course. So I love gifting Veuve, and the personalized bottle adds a special and thoughtful touch. There are two lines to add a name or message as well as a spot to add a location.
I received this cheese board as a birthday gift a few years ago, and I’ve used it countless times. It’s such high quality and has held up really well. It comes in square and rectangular sizes. The option to add an initial makes it an even more perfect gift.
This cocktail glass looks fab on any bar cart or kitchen counter. Pineapples are also supposed to symbolize good luck, hospitality and prosperity coming your way — who doesn’t want that? I’ve also owned this item for several years, and it hasn’t tarnished.
These plates come in a set of two, and they would make a beautiful addition to any dining room table. They’re handcrafted by Vietnamese artists and look super expensive. I also love that they could work in both modern and traditional homes.
I bought these Lenox espresso cups for myself a few months ago after I got a new Nespresso machine as a bridal shower gift. Each cup has a unique design, but they mesh really well together. These really elevated my entertaining game because now I can offer espressos after dinner or drinks.
I always have candles lit when guests are over, and this cloche is a gorgeous way to display the matches. Even if you prefer to use a lighter instead, it still makes for cool decor for your coffee table or shelf.
I tried out a lot of great recipes that I found online during quarantine, but then I would never really save them properly. Next time I’d go to make it, I’d have to look through pages of “butternut squash soup” recipes to *maybe* find the original. My goal is to get organized with my cooking next year, and I’m sure lots of other people feel the same.
Fill this bowl with anything and you instantly have an amazing centerpiece. Fruit, pumpkins and Christmas ornaments, to name a few, would work for seasonal entertaining. Even empty, this bowl is stunning and timeless.
I don’t actually own this, but I’ve heard really good things about it. It basically allows you to pour wine from a bottle without removing the cork. When you have guests over, you can open a few nice bottles at once without worrying about wasting wine. The bottles apparently stay fresh for several months after pouring the first glass.
Drop these flavored cubes into a glass of champagne to add some pizzazz to your drink. How adorable would these be for a brunch mimosa bar? This 18-piece set comes with three different flavor options.
I got this printer last year for Christmas, and it’s so much fun to use with friends! If you take a cute photo on your phone during a get together, you can instantly print it out. It’s so easy to connect via Bluetooth, and the prints make for a cute takeaway at the end of a party.
This has become a staple in my kitchen! I use it for all my Mexican theme nights for homemade guacamole or salsa. It looks so professional. I recently ordered this mortar and pestle for my parents, and it’s a super authentic version that’s made out of volcanic rock.
