8 Perfect Hostess Gifts For Your Next Dinner Party

dinner party

Attending dinner party is one of those things you just have to get used to as an adult. Some enjoy hosting them, while others would much rather show up and enjoy the party. If you’re the ladder, I’m sure you know that its uncommon to show up to a dinner party completely empty handed. Instead of buying a cheap bottle of wine on the way there, take a little extra time to impress your host that has put in so much time and effort for you! Here are a few of our favorite things:


honeysuckle candle lavender candle lemon candle

Candles are sold practically everywhere, which makes them a super convenient gift! You can spend as little as a couple bucks, or splurge for something extra fancy. I would recommend a soy candle because they have a much longer life to them!

Typically if you’re going to a dinner party, that means someone will have cooked. So what better a gift than an apron! You could go the funny route, stylish, or just something simple. No matter which option you choose, the house chef will love it!

Tea towels

Tea towels are one of those things that you can never have enough of. These are easily changed with the seasons or holidays, or even interchangeable throughout the rooms in the house. This is a quick and affordable find that will be sure to please!

A sweet treat


If you know your host/hostess well enough to know what their favorite sweet treat is, this is another quick and easy gift. Whether its chocolate, candy or pastries, a fan favorite is never under appreciated!

Cookbook/ Recipe cards

If you know your host is a big fan of cooking, why not get them a cookbook! You could go holiday themed or get a kit to make their own with receipt cards for all their best kept family recipes. Planning ahead to purchase a personalized recipe organizer will be especially impressive!

Specialty Salt

Following along with the cooking theme, a specialty salt is bound to be a unique gift! You can pick a couple of individual ones at your local grocery store, or splurge for a set you can most likely find at a mall, or find online.

Being a host means inviting people into your home. As a guest the last thing you want to do is to ruin anything in the home you’ve been invited into. So having an extra set of coasters could be just what they need!
