‘Tis the season for holiday parties, and along with those fun times comes the responsibility of finding suitable host/hostess gifts.  A nice bottle of wine or box of chocolates (or cookies or cupcakes or macarons) are always a nice touch, but if you would like to try something different for a few of the very special hosts/hostesses in your life, there are a lot of options available to you.

Many retail websites now include a “hostess gift” page on their site, including West Elm, Crate & Barrel and Modern Karibou.

My picks for 2010 holiday parties are:

Bamboo cheese board & dome from West Elm: $24.99

Lovely Gift from West Elm

Winter dot canape plates from West Elm: $22.00 for a set of four

Modern Holiday Tableware

Customized chef’s hat from For Friends: $12.00 + embroidery

Adorable Custom Gift

Set of six cheese markers from Crate & Barrel: $9.95

Porcelian Lovelies

Package of six sweet stands from Brilliant Bash: $10.50

So Cute

Glass pedestal with dome from Pottery Barn: $14.00

Pretty and Multi-functional

For a very special host/hostess, try this snazzy dip bowl set from Modern Karibou: $99.50

Deluxe Dipping

Tip: If you opt for tableware or goods for the home, ensure the gift is fairly neutral in colour, and is fairly small in size.  Most people don’t have a lot of room for extra knick knacks and serving ware in their cupboards, so it’s best not to infringe upon your host/hostess with a large gift.

Of course, the best gifts are the ones that really “suit” the person they are being given to.  If you have any suggestions for great host/hostess gifts, please do post them here or on our Facebook page.  Happy holiday partying!
