For the Home

Bringing a gift for a party host or hostess is always a polite and thoughtful gesture. Go easy on your wallet this year with the below recommendations — each is guaranteed to impress.

Camel Ornament

At just $15, this gold-plated aluminum camel is an inexpensive way to upgrade any tree.

Cheese Board and Three-Piece Utensil Set

Nothing says "you’re an adult" quite like a cheese board — especially one with an accompanying set of utensils. The entire set comes in at under $50.

City Scape & Polka Dot Napkins

Good linens rarely make or break a kitchen, but a lovely set of towels does add something special. Handmade in India, these depict either a cityscape in gold on ivory cotton linen, or a polka-dot pattern.

Pop Candles in Vodka, Champagne, and Bourbon

Trade the expected bottles of liquor for these aromatic, alcohol-inspired candles. The vodka scent smells like lime and pink grapefruit, the Champagne scent has hints of raspberry and violet, and the bourbon scent features birch tree and cedar wood.

Leather Thermos

Sol & Luna’s leather thermos is ideal for both camping enthusiasts and casual day drinkers. Bring it on a weekend hike, or use it to transport mimosas to brunch in the park.

Cava Melbourne Tray

This leather tray is a great addition to the home of the host who has everything or the young adult who's just getting started. The neutral tone and sophisticated material means it works just as well as all-day decor — say, as a coffee-table organizer or a place to stack magazines — as it does for shuttling drinks during cocktail hour.

Malachite Salt and Pepper Shakers

Sometimes the best gifts are those you'd never think of buying for yourself, like this set of triangle-shaped salt and pepper shakers that'll liven up any table setting.

Angled Brass Brush Holder

Toothbrush holders don't often top the list of best hostess gifts, but the sleek, elegant design of this one makes it an exception to the rule. Plus, the recipient could use it for just about anything if he or she already has this essential covered.
