Hostess Gift Ideas for under $75

With so many social obligations it can be easy to forget to show your appreciation to hosts who have kindly opened their home in celebration. A hostess gift is a thoughtful gesture that, while not an obligation, is always welcome. Think beyond the typical bottle of wine or bouquet – which may actually be a bit of a burden as the host runs around to find a vase or decide whether to open the bottle that evening, and look to one of our creative gift ideas that are easy on the pocketbook.

A monogrammed pair of salt & pepper shakers, like these from Saks Fifth Avenue, is a lovely idea that is personalized for the recipient – confirming that this is no re-gift.

This beautiful St. Nicolas frame is a gift that gives all year round – all the better if it includes a special picture (of a child or pet) that is meaningful to the recipient.

A bud vase lends a modern touch and leaves the hostess free to enjoy without having to take care of an arrangement. We love this sleek & silver Nambe vase available at Macy’s.

With it’s vintage look, this serving set at Neiman Marcus may be put to use that evening. Even if not, it is a welcome gift for someone who clearly loves to entertain.

Scented reeds, diffuse a subtle fragrance that the hostess may put wherever she chooses and always think of you when with the sweet scent.
