Holiday Gift Guide: For the Haute Hostess

We always like to wrap things up with gifts for the haute hostess (or host) with chic ideas to bring to those holiday parties, winter weekend getaways or even the in-laws. Be sure to check back next week for our holiday cookie ideas!

Anne’s Picks

If your hostess likes to cook, then chances are her pot holders have been through the ringer.  Surprise her with a brand new set that she will be sure to put to good use.  Mint tea is also a great choice to keep the stress of the season at bay.


1. Cutlery Potrait Napkins ($16)  2. Organic Chestnut Honey ($12)  3. Gunpowder Mint Tea ($12) 4. Mildred Potholders ($14)  5. Alain Milliat Nectars ($12) 

Katie’s Picks

In terms of bang for your buck, Restoration Hardware’s luxe throws come at a great deal because they’re often on sale.  Last year I went a little overboard and bought three of them as gifts (and one for myself…shhh!) Warm, stylish and easily washed without losing their plushness, these cozy finds are a great gift especially if you’ll be someone’s house guest.

1. Pie Plate ($45)  2. Cora & Lis Tumblers ($4.90, $6.90)  3. Truck Food Cookbook ($18.95) 4. Spritely Jig Potholders ($14) 5. Olivewood Coasters ($24)  6. Luxury Plush Throw ($39)

Stef’s Picks

If your host or hostess is social media savvy, now they can rest their glasses on their own Instagram pictures. Coastergrams allow you to turn those iPhone snapped photos into stone coasters. Fancy flavored olive oils always make a great hostess gift. Who doesn’t love themselves a bottle of truffle oil?

1. Joy the Baker Cookbook ($12)  2. Coastergrams ($30)  3. Chevron Hand Towels ($23.50)  4. Labeled Kitchen Utility Jar ($16)  5. Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Ornament ($10)  6.  Truffle Olive Oil ($16.50)
