It’s always best to give a gift that you would like to receive yourself. If you love it, they should love it too!

The Gifter :: Outgift the Party

As we head full steam into the holiday season, along with it comes all those parties. Whether it be your office party, neighbor’s holiday open house or intimate dinner with family and friends, it’s bad form to arrive empty handed. Bringing a thoughtful gift for the host or hostess is always appreciated, but what’s appropriate to give? This week, the folks at HomeGoods and POPSUGAR are having #TheGifter crew uncover the best gifts at amazing prices, perfect to “Outgift the Party.” Here are just some of the many ever changing gift ideas I discovered at my local HomeGoods this week… be sure to follow Simplified Bee on Instagram #TheGifter to see them all!

crystal highball glasses - hostess gifts #thegifter

These exquisite crystal highball glasses by a high-end designer are perfect for your bff’s holiday bash or the newlywed’s dinner. The set of four is an absolute steal at $29.99 at HomeGoods compared to $60 at department stores. I’ll drink to that!

gourmet balsamic vinegar - hostess gift #thegifter

Food and wine is always a welcome gift for holiday dinner parties. This gourmet vinegar is a great, unexpected present for the hostess that loves to cook. The packaging is so fabulous, I wouldn’t even wrap it… simply add a gift tag, red bow and you are ready to go!

swedish holiday coasters - hostess gifts #thegifter

These Swedish drink coasters with tree cut-out would be a lovely, practical gift for just about any host or hostess.  The beautiful Alder grain makes each coaster unique.

celebration party crackers - hostess gift #thegifter

For the office party these British celebration crackers with little surprise trinkets inside gets my vote!

What’s your favorite gift to bring to a Christmas party? Be sure to tweet the images of the hostess gifts you discover with #TheGifter and you just may win a TJX $500 gift card!

Happy shopping,

Cristin

Fabulous Hostess Gift Ideas for 2013

disclosure: This post contains an affiliate links, which means Simplified Bee receives commission if you make a purchase using this link.

As we move into November (can hardly believe it!), our minds quickly shift from spiders, cobwebs and witches to turkey dinner, holiday parties and hanging the stockings with care. Like many of you, the holiday season means large family dinners and cocktail parties with friends. If you’ll be heading to a Thanksgiving feast, Christmas party or holiday open house  in the next few weeks, bringing a thoughtful host or hostess gift is always appreciated. A favorite bottle of wine, homemade baked goods or a lovely bouquet of flowers are tried and true hostess gifts and will certainly be well received. However, if you are running short on time or want to bring something a little different, here are my favorite hostess gift ideas for 2013:
