Gift Guide

22 Stylish Gifts for the Hostess With the Mostest

As of today, there are only 19 shopping days left until Christmas.  That’s right – 19 DAYS!!  #HolyCrap!

In the last few weeks, I shared some gift guides to help free up your valuable time by doing the shopping for you so you can enjoy the holiday season and JUST BE.

This week’s gift guide is targeted toward The Hostess with the Mostest.

If you missed the Gift Guide posts for The Homebody,  The GamerThe Gardener, and Children, make sure to check them out.  I’m sure you’ll find some super fun ideas to add to your holiday shopping list!


I have hosted many parties in my lifetime, some of them being pretty epic (friends still talk about one of my Halloween parties from 15 years ago!) so I have some experience in this arena.

However, I am not one of those crazy unique people that LIVES to host parties almost every other weekend.  That’s so cray-cray to me!  Not only is it a crapload of work to prepare for a party and the cleanup afterward, but the costs of hosting even just one party quickly add up.

But when I do host a party, I LOVE using pretty things to showcase all the good eats I set out for our guests. I enjoy using items people wouldn’t typically see in their day-to-day lives which (hopefully) makes the event a little more special for our guests. And I really love using things that are brass or gold because they instantly exude warmth and luxury and they make cheap grocery store cheese & crackers actually look expensive.

So this week’s Gift Guide is dedicated to that unicorn of a woman that EATS, BREATHES, SLEEPS, and POOPS hosting party, after party, after party, after party, after party, after party, after party, after party …

I’m SUPER intrigued by the raw honeycomb from World Market – I think I may have to get one for myself because I am a honey ADDICT.  But I think my fave item on this list has got to be that adorable measuring cup set from Anthropologie.  I love how quirky, yet practical, it is!
