How to Give the Perfect Hostess Gift

Any time I am a guest at someone's home or party, I always make sure to bring a gift that the host will enjoy and use often. He or she has done so much to prepare for your arrival to ensure that you have a fantastic time, so it's important to show your appreciation. 

I've rounded up some of my favorite hostess gifts to give:

Monogrammed Cocktail Napkins:
These are simple yet so sweet and personal. Every time your host has a party in the future, he or she will look back at these cocktail napkins and always think of you. I love these from Mark and Graham. They come with free personalization and a pretty complimentary gift box. What's not to love?


Instead of bringing a bouquet of flowers to the party, I suggest sending a beautiful floral arrangement a day or two before the event. This allows the host to enjoy them before the party, and prevents them from having to find a vase, cut the stems, and arrange them right before or during the party when things are chaotic. Your consideration of their time will be greatly appreciated!

These are the perfect trinkets to give a host because they can be used in a powder bath for other guests to enjoy. Pick a scent that smells clean and fresh, not overly fruity or sweet. I love the soaps from Crabtree & Evelyn, especially the Nantucket Briar Collection.
