Toast-worthy Drinkware

Drinkware can be one of the best hostess gifts when you are attending an evening gathering. Crystal stemware is our favorite choice for a unique hostess gift when it’s time to make an impression. Is her drink of choice a martini? Gift a set of martini glasses with a sophisticated shape and lustrous design. Perhaps her signature drink is a whiskey sour or negroni, in which case these cut crystal glasses will do nicely. And if she’s a wine aficionado, we carry everything from champagne glasses, white wine glasses, and red wine glasses to hold her favorite pour. Cheers!

Modern Linens

The best hostess gifts enhance her home entertaining but are easy to use and clean. One of our favorite luxurious hostess gifts is a set of sophisticated linens which are sure to delight any hostess. Chances are if she’s throwing a party or dinner she likes to make the most of her tablescape, and a table runner, table cloth, or set of linen napkins will help her dress up any meal with ease. Cribsi’s collection of table linens is focused on natural fabrics for an environmentally friendly, stylish, and machine washable choice. The only difficult part will be choosing just one of the vibrant colors and patterns!

A Fun Home Bar Gadget

If she loves to throw parties, entertain during cocktail hour, or simply enjoys a quiet glass of wine on her own, the best hostess gift might be a fun and functional addition to her home bar. This wine opener with a foil cutter allows you to open any bottle of wine in seconds, without the effort of traditional corkscrews and its streamlined design makes it easy to store and use as a part of any home bar. Plus, it comes ready to gift in an elegant box so you don’t even need to worry about wrapping.

Sophisticated Kitchen Accessories

Is your favorite hostess also a passionate home cook? In that case, one of the most fun and unique hostess gifts for her might be one of our modern kitchen accessories. Consider a magnetic trivet that sticks to your pot as you move it on countertops or tabletops or a smart mat that functions as both a trivet and a phone or iPad holder for easy recipe consultation while you cook. Or a sleek, chic caddy that helps her organize all of her favorite kitchen tools will also make a welcome present for any home chef.

Inspired Serveware

Help her present her favorite dishes in style with modern serveware designed to delight. A gorgeously-constructed cake stand is perfect for the home baker, while a modern tea set that she can use for afternoon gatherings or post-dinner coffees will surely be appreciated by any hostess you know. An ice bucket will be a welcome addition to any barbecue or cocktail party, and she’ll be sure to love the lightweight, sleek design.

Pretty Planters

Does your hostess have a green thumb? In that case one of the best hostess gifts for her is a striking planter or vase that will help her show off her favorite blooms and greenery. Unique vases made from textured porcelain are lovely on a tabletop, bedside nightstand, fireplace mantle, or anywhere you’d like to position your fresh cut flowers. If she favors tropical blossoms then there’s no gift quite like a specially designed orchid pot that will help her care for her most delicate, exotic orchid plants. To go the extra mile you might also consider pairing this gift with a gift card to an online florist or presenting her with a filled planter—she’ll be sure to swoon over the thoughtful gesture.

Sweet Tea Towels

A set of linen tea towels is one of the best hostess gifts, no matter if she’s a chef supreme or caters all of her soirees. Linen towels are elegant, easy to maintain, and made to last, not to mention functional. She’ll use them for everything from cleaning up spills and drying hands to wrapping up items. If you’re going over to someone’s home for a meal we love the idea of presenting the tea towels wrapped around a bottle of wine, a loaf of bread, or a bouquet of her favorite flowers.

A Cozy Throw
