Hostess Gift Guide – Great Gifts Under $15

Have you ever shown up to a dinner party where everyone else brings the hostess a gift; but you, you come empty handed?  Yep, been there many times.  During the holidays we all get so many party invitations that it can get very expensive.  So I’ve put together this handy Hostess Gift Buying Guide to give you some great ideas for gifts that won’t break the bank.  All are under $15 but most average $5-$7 and they’re perfect any time of year.

This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience.  You can read my full disclosure here.

Hostess Gifts – For the Entertainer

When you entertain you can never have too many little knives and forks for cutting and serving cheese.  This 4 Piece Culinary Cheese Knive Gift Set is a beautiful addition to any table.

This Hostess Gift Guide is full of inexpensive but lovely hostess gift ideas.

And since we can never have enough little knives I thought this Cute Mice Trio was too cute to not make the list.

Of course you need a great looking serving piece for your cheeses, like this beautiful White Marble Lazy Susan.

Beverage Lovers Hostess Gift

I’ve owned and lost several sets of wine glass charms so these Metallic Beverage Glass Markers are exactly what I’d love to receive.  With the trend toward stemless wine glasses these are perfect, you’ll always know which glass is yours.  No more wondering if you had the charm with the sunflower or the daisy, the pig or the cow 🙂

This set of Perkatory Coffee Mugs says exactly how I feel every morning.  If it describes you as well you should buy the set so you can keep one for yourself and give one as a Hostess Gift to your coffee-loving friend.

After you’ve done all the cooking it’s time for a little cleanup.  Mrs. Meyer’s cleaning products are so popular because they smell great and are very gentle.  Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Lemon Verbena Hand Soap will surely be welcome at your Hostess’ kitchen sink.

Hi Toni,

This list of gifts has such wonderful ideas. Thank you very much for making this.

I really like the ideas of kitchen gifts like the apron, and those coasters. The owl cookie jar is lovely. I wish there are more designs to choose. I think I might buy every jar of each and save them for each hostess lol. Because everybody loves cookies!

Thanks again. Really helpful!
