The holiday season sees lots of parties and get togethers. Being the good daughter that I am, I always show up with a gift for the host or hostess. (Mom taught me well.) However, because I like to be unique, I like to find something different to give the host or hostess besides flowers or a bottle of wine. I want my gift to remind them of the party, our friendship and, most of all, I want it to be useful!
Below are some Christmas party ideas for presents to a host or hostess that I have given in the past. They have all been very well received! They put a lot of effort, time and thought into their party, I want them to know I did the same for their gift.
Three simple ideas that will win you a smile and a hug this holiday party season.
First, a fancy cake server. Obviously, if they are hosting a holiday party, they like to entertain. A good gift is a cake server and this one is a cake server with a boutique attitude!
High heel cake servers are so much fun and will start conversations when set out on a dessert table. My girlfriend was thrilled with this cake server and they have many more available in different heel colors too. There's even some with animal print heels!
This next item is a coffee table book. Most anyone can appreciate a large, hard bound book filled with stunning photographs. I love this one but there are lots of coffee table books available for travel, architecture, photography, history and other topics. This is a gift they will see on a daily basis and adds to their home decor and style.
When choosing just the right coffee table book for your friend, pay attention to his/her likes, preferences, decor and personality. When he/she opens your host or hostess gift, they will know you took the time to really find something that reflects their personality. What better type of gift could you give?
Again, because they are entertaining and hosting a holiday party, I'm sure they could use a cake stand. I, personally, believe you can never have enough cake stands! This one is 8" in diameter and 8 1/2" tall. It will make a statement whether they use it to display food on a buffet, to hold a candle on a bookcase shelf or place a flowering pot on top for the mantel. Cake stands are so versatile and people love them! This one is so elegant with the hanging beads -- I want one!
Tons of cake stands available to choose from. Find one you think will work for him/her and wrap it up nice as a host or hostess gift.
