EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT

Hostess Gifts

Whether you’re invited to a dinner party, a weekend getaway, or an extended stay at a friend’s home, a handmade thank-you gift shows a host or hostess just how much you appreciate his or her hospitality. Find inspiration in our favorite personalized hostess presents -- with details like a cherished photo or a hand-painted monogram to make these gifts special.

 

A thoughtful gift doesn’t have to mean devoting days to the project -- our assembly-line gift ideas can be made quickly in big batches, and are also easily customized. If your friend loves lavender, add lavender essential oil to our basic candle recipe. Visiting a chocolate lover? Bake our Chocolate Marble Bread. If you don’t feel like taking on a project, choose a gift that’s more about curating than creating: Our gift set ideas let you decide which components to make and which to purchase.
