No matter the time of year or the reason for the occasion, there’s something to be said about a good old-fashioned gathering. From weekend dinners to alfresco soirees and impromptu cocktail hours (maybe you’re having a grandma’s moment at the seaside with wine on the beach!), every opportunity to get together with loved ones is reason enough to clear our calendars. And after a long than necessary time spent in our own independent spaces, the time has come to bring back the art of coming together IRL.
If you’re less of the party type and find yourself in the camp of the attendees, you know you can’t make your stylish appearance without something in hand. Kind hosts should be recognized for rekindling the fire of conviviality, and there is no better way to express your gratitude than with a thoughtful gift. After all, they deliver the drinks. It’s just a matter of courtesy.
Bypass something simple with our suggestions for the best hostess gifts for any occasion. Check out our selection of thoughtful kitchenware, chic household items and more below.

Composite Agate Cheese Board
Sure, cheese is great. But cheese on a patchwork of agate is even tastier.

For the Wino

There’s just something so charming about a quirky piece of decor like this classic Gluggle Jug, which makes a slurping sound when you use it! Your giftee can use it as a pitcher for water, a vase or a piece of art. The possibilities are endless. (And if the host is a true fashion lover, may we suggest a glass bag vase?)
When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with a classic bottle of wine. And if the host has already become an expert at red, white, and rosé, a tangy orange is just the ticket.
Wooden serving spoons are great and all, but have you seen these matte gold beauties?!

Nothing makes a party more rewarding than making it a party. If the person you shop for is the type who knows the most, she deserves only the best.
Brownies, peanut brittle, sour cream coffee cake, potato chips and more from Zingerman’s, the famous Jewish deli in Ann Arbor, Michigan. What more do they want?
Chateau Baccarat 4-Piece Tasting Glass Set
Breaking a wine glass may be considered a big party, but not when you roll up with this stylish set.
Shake it off and look stylish while doing it.
La Fête du Rosé – Set of 3
A great (and sustainable) rosé, produced in the oldest vineyard of Saint-Tropez, because the rosé season should be all year round.
Gift package with 3 herbs for the holidays

If they don’t know about Ina Garten’s coconut cake, they know now.

Keep it sweet with this family-owned honey brand.
Bring some warmth and color with this original artwork – and it will be framed!

Who among us could use a new set of tea towels?
Beverly’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Do not underestimate the true luxury of tasty olive oil. How about this limited-edition bottle from Beverly’s NYC in collaboration with a small family orchard in Santa Ynez, California? The illustration is by New York-based designer Naomi Otsu.
Gift the convenience: This charger is slim enough to fit in any wallet, so your host will never run out of battery.

The soirée may be fabulous and all, but it will be infinitely more chic if you whip out a bottle of bubbly as opulent as Perrier-Jouët’s latest collaboration with artists.
