Holiday Gift Guide: For the Hostess


Last week, we kicked off this season of gift giving with a gift guide for the cooks in your life. This week, we want to shift gears slightly and suggest some fun ideas for the hostess.

Shop Local: Central Florida Gifts

A quick stop in Clementine will unequivocally inspire your gift giving efforts. We’re particularly excited for the flavored sugar cubes, which offer a quick and easy way for guests to whip up their favorite cocktail. Grab Manhattan for bourbon drinkers, strawberry for champagne lovers, or Moscow Mule for vodka sippers!

An orchid arrangement from Ginny’s Orchid will please any hostess. Pick the size, style, color, and container to customize it for your recipient. It’s the gift that keeps giving: The plant has the potential to bloom for several years with the proper care. 

If you like to stock up on some grab-and-go hostess gifts, pick up a few candles and cocktail napkins at Frank. This curated boutique has a little bit of everything, making it a one-stop shop when it comes to checking people off of your list. 

Head to The Grove for some whimsical holiday goodies, like their 30-inch Holiballs, gorgeous wreaths, or blue and white hand-crafted ornaments.

We also love Miscellaneous Market for an endless array of hostess gifts. They’re hard at work on adding an e-commerce feature to their website, so for now, you can stop in their brick-and-mortar store at 1903 North Orange Avenue in Orlando.

Other Gift Ideas For the Entertainer

These adorable Prosecco earrings offer a touch of sparkle to make sure your party host feels and looks her best. Although they’re wearable year-round, they give a perfect nod to the holiday celebrations ahead!

These rattan-wrapped glasses (pictured above) by Amanda Lindroth work well with any tablescape. Or grab a pitcher, which can double as a vase or centerpiece. Central Florida residents will especially appreciate the island vibes of this beautiful collection! 

Consider a gift that gives back and grab some goodies from The Little Market. This nonprofit organization is dedicated to providing safe and dignified work as well as steady income to women around the globe. Any entertainer will love the gorgeous dinnerware and table linens, all with the bonus of serving a greater purpose at every meal. Can’t you just picture a piece of our Cranberry Cake on this blush ceramic side plate?
