Seasonal Staples: Brilliant Hostess Gifts

Now that we're fully in the season of holiday parties, family gatherings and professional celebrations, we thought it would be a great time to share some simple but showstopping ideas for hostess gifts. Bringing a hostess gift is an excellent way to spread cheer to and to say thank you to your hosts for extending their hospitality to you and your family. 

One of the easiest and most classic gifts to bring is a beautiful candle. Especially at this time of year when the days are so short, it is lovely to have the warm flicker of a candle as you relax in the evening. Picking a high quality candle with a beautiful glass container is a gift you can't go wrong with!

Festive drinkware is a lovely gift, and it will last in your hostess' collection for years. There are so many gorgeous sets of glassware available, from festive scenes to classic designs. We love these ones from West Elm for their modern design, but also think they resemble ice and snow- perfect for this time of year!

For the wine-loving host, this gift set is a beautiful tasting sampler of a variety of port wines. Gift sets and seasonal liqueurs are also out in full force this season, and most have lovely packaging all on their own- no need to wrap it! 

There's nothing more classic than a seasonal flower arrangement. This one links to a how-to, but you can also rely on your florist or grocer to have beautiful blooms in seasonal colours this time of year. A great tip to make a grocery store bouquet more luxurious- and also not add another chore to your hostess' list- is to purchase a vase and transfer the flowers before your arrival. 

Lastly, if you know your hosts love to bake, this seasonal rolling pin is a gorgeous gift which will let them indulge in their hobby in style.
