Don't Overthink Hostess Gifts: These 5 Classics Are Sure To Please
If you have a busy holiday calendar coming up complete with family dinners, cocktail parties, and brunches to attend, consider saving your brain unnecessary overthinking by opting for these 5 classic hostess gifts. Buying no-brainer items help saves you time (and therefore money), but most importantly, unnecessary aggravation, freeing up your mental energy so you can ponder the most meaningful last-minute gifts on your list. 
  1. Candles. Electric or wax, steer clear of gimmicky scents and aim for styles with a higher end look. Victoria Beckham, Beyoncé, and LeBron James especially love Diptyque candles. 
  2. Wine and/or Chocolates. A nice bottle for a gift is in the $15-20 range, but if you're inclined to splurge for holiday time, Prosecco, Cava, or Champagne are an easy way to make a splash. Another terrific bet to impress your host (especially if you're showing up with your husband and three kids!) but staying within budget is to add a box of chocolates on the side. 
  3. Art activities. Aim for gifts kids can enjoy on the spot, like Melissa and Doug stained glass, a Spirograph tin set, or Stencil and Drawing Sets by Creative Craft. Steer clear of messy toys like slime or magnetic sand.  
  4. Books. Whether it's your favorite go-to cookbook, poetry collection, or latest bestseller, aim for reads that have more shelf-appeal than Kindle appeal. 
  5. Picture frames. These are hugely appreciated gifts considering how many photos everyone's taking nowadays. That said, please stick with a classic frames that aren't too busy, oversized, or in gimmicky colors. Your gift recipient will want to look at the photo, not the frame.
