Inspirations by D is a cute Etsy shop and you can find decorative glass magnets and push pins. The sets of four start from $8.75 and are all unique and handmade, making them a great gift for your friend to cherish.
Napkins always make a great hostess gift. Choose fabric ones like Marimekko’s Vellamo ($25), or paper ones, like Marimekko’s Keisarinna ($5.95) and combine it with candles, fresh flowers, or edible gifts like candy.
Stonewall Kitchen has an amazing offering of specialty foods that will be a joy for any hostess’ pantry. My favorites are the specialty jams, that come in incredible flavor combinations like blueberry and pomegranate, and how about strawberry apple rhubarb?
The body lotions at The Body Shop are my long time favorites, and make great hostess gifts. Small sizes are $8, and large ones $20, but if you buy 2, you’ll get a 3rd one for free. Stock up so you will always have a nice gift for someone.
Coffee Bean Coffee Scoop by Michael Aram ($44), available at Tabula Tua, is a great gift for a coffee lover hostess.
Chocolate yummy, yummy! No, not really. This box of chocolates is a Soap Gift Set ($48), perfect for that friend who loves chocolate, but tries to count calories. Luxury soaps are great hostess gifts.
