3 Ho-Ho-Hostess Gifts she’s sure to love

December 4, 2017

It’s the season of giving and who is more giving than the serial hostess in your life?  We all have someone who comes to mind.  Beyond hosting the annual parties, it’s the person who always invites you and the children over to make Christmas cookies, trim the tree, or just share each other’s company over an expertly crafted charcuterie board and wine.

One of the most fun parts of entertaining is getting creative with your serviceware.  Maybe it’s a signature cocktail glass or an interesting plate choice that bring your hostessing game to the next level.  So if you want to give your favorite hostess a gift that is sure to make her smile, consider some of these pretties!

La Double J. Plates, 6 for $250

1. Patterned dessert plates

Color, color, color!  Everywhere you turn, color and pattern are trending and people are not afraid to use it – finally!  These Italian imports are making me green with envy.

Vietri Regalia Glassware, 4 for $260

2. Statement glassware

In keeping with the current love of color and pattern, how great are these Vietri glasses?  I’m all about the vibrant, mid-century modern look these convey.  It’s like instant decor in the hands of your guests!

Side note: I have been finding tons of mid-century modern glassware in vintage antique stores for a tiny fraction of the cost.  If you like treasure hunting, hit up your nearest vintage store and stock up!  I have more than I know what to do with…

3. Gilded dishware

Metallic accents are everywhere and I’m loving it.  They add a touch of glam to an otherwise blah piece.  These four gilded pieces particularly caught my eye.  Oh how I’d love to add these to my table!

Anna by Rablabs Dual Bowl, $85

Consider yourself inspired!  Now go treat that special hostess in your life to a gift that’s particularly thoughtful and one she’s sure to love.
