So you’re gathering safely with close friends or family this season? Aside from a face mask and your best social distancing behavior, you’ll want some great hostess gifts in-hand. A token of appreciation has always been mandatory in Houseguest Etiquette 101—but this year, it’s even more important. If they’re opening their home up to you over all other loved ones, they obviously place you in high regard, so you’d hate to show up empty-handed.
While candles and booze are obvious contenders for the best hostess gifts (we shopped some out below), the guests who stand out usually have something unique in tow. Think: an outstanding bottle of olive oil you’d be hesitant to buy for yourself or a low-lift cocktail book that doubles as decor. From the wine snob to the cake boss, hosts across the board will welcome these thoughtful gifts with open arms (and an open fridge). Ahead, shop our 51 picks that will warm their heart while making their lives easier, the ideal combo for any overworked host.
