Hostess Gifts They Will Rave About! - South OC Moms

Hostess Gifts

Hosting during the holidays is so joyful…and so exhausting. As moms who work really hard daily, we can seriously appreciate the time it takes to tidy the house, plan and execute a menu (whether cooking or ordering) and curate tasty cocktails and mocktails.  Hostesses deserve a giant thank you – with something they’ll actually love!

Because we have a million decisions to make during the holidays, we took all the guesswork out of gifting the hosts and hostesses in your life.

Here are 9 items to gift – that will ensure you get invited back!


21 Seeds Cucumber Jalapeno Tequila, $35

An award-winning tequila, 21 Seeds offers smooth fruit flavor that can be enjoyed during the holidays and beyond.  Your host will be thrilled you introduced them to this artisanal brand.

Molton Brown Gingerlily Hand Wash & Lotion Set, $69

Molton Brown is a classic and elegant choice that even the most discerning host will enjoy.  Their series of scents are both spicy and floral – and we promise your host will be ordering refills in the new year.

Ain’t Too Proud to Meg Easy Round Charcuterie Board, $75

This charcuterie board is the trending gift that even Oprah called one of her Favorite Things of 2023!  It’s a fool-proof gift that shows you – literally – how to place cheese, cured meats, and snacks for a beautiful board, every time.

Kosterina Snacking Olives Trio, $25

Our favorite olive oil brand outdid itself this season with the launch of these savory Kalamata and green olives. They’ll look beautiful on a table – or be devoured right out of the jar!  We dare you to have just one.

Pomegranate Cactus Flower Blue Napkins, Set of 4 for $56

These 100% cotton napkins are made for everyday use – the perfect (low maintenance) upgrade to any kitchen.  The entire line of linens is hand block printed in India and easily cleaned in the washing machine.

Monogram Mary Log Carrier, $98

There are two kinds of people in the world:  those who swear by a gas-fireplace and those who will only live with a wood-burning fireplace.  For the traditionalist in your life, this log carrier is perfection.  Add a monogram for extra charm!

Jonathan Adler Madrid Coasters, $95

Jonathan Adler is renowned for injecting personality into housewares – and these coasters don’t disappoint.  In fact, the entire collection of coasters offer fun and functional vibes for a memorable gift.

Crown Maple Amber Color Rich Taste Organic Maple Syrup, $16

There’s a special wow factor when simple things feel like true luxuries and this high quality, decadent maple syrup is one of them. Perfect on pancakes, yogurt, oatmeal, and ice cream, a host will be grateful with every drizzle!

Coyuchi Organic Waffle Kitchen Towel Set, Set of 6 for $58

Dish towels get destroyed between spills, stains, and incessant washing. Give your hostess a refresh with these sustainable towels that are a kitchen workhorse thanks to the waffle texture.
