Wise-Bites Holiday Gift Guide: Hostess Edition

So many gifts to buy, so little time! If you’re anything like me, finding gifts for a hostess is always a challenge. But it is a wonderful tradition, and thoughtful gesture, you don’t want to abandon. In this post I’ve compiled a list of gifts - beyond that bottle of wine - that will work for anyone, and will be sure to delight. Take a look at some of these fabulous, and affordable, gift ideas:

Want to give your hostess something festive, but still original? Check out these stunning hand-made glass ornaments from Grays Glass on Etsy: they are both beautiful and one-of-a-kind! Not to mention, you’ll get extra points for a hand-made gift.

Canadian Gift Guide has tons of great gift ideas for all the people in your life, and their post “Jingle Belles Rock” focuses on giving gifts from ladies to ladies. There are some fabulous ideas in here, including these gorgeous hand-stamped, customizable pendants which are perfect for any good friend, or hostess, in your life.

Would you rather give a gift that you’ve created yourself? Check out this awesome DIY Fabric Wrapped Paperwhite Bulbs gift idea from Poppytalk.  This creative gift shows you’ve put both time, and effort, into your holiday gift this year. Not to mention, it’s such an original gift that you can be sure your hostess won’t receive this gift from anyone else this holiday season.

David’s Tea, the now famous Canadian owned tea company, has some fabulous holiday themed gifts this year which are ideal for any hostess. Check out the Tea for the Tree for an affordable (and adorable!) gift for your hostess.

We also have some pretty fabulous gift ideas for hostesses, if we do say so ourselves. The Vegan Holiday Gift Basket is a perfect (and easy!) gift for every hostess, made even more perfect from the lack of allergens in our food products.

If you’d rather give your gift a personal touch, try putting some of our Crystallized Ginger in a dish (we like this heart-shaped stoneware bowl from Clay by Stacia on Etsy) and tying the whole thing together with some festive cellophane paper and a fancy ribbon. They get a delicious treat, a keepsake bowl, and a thoughtful gift from you!

If your hostess isn’t a huge fan of ginger, try taking our Cranberry Orange Muffins and arranging them in a pretty basket or box. You can again seal the whole package together with festive cellophane paper and a pretty ribbon for a fun, simple and easy gift!


Voila! Fun, unique and simple gift ideas for your hostess this holiday season.
