2018 Holiday Gift Guide for Holiday Hostesses (and under $50 faves!)

Hi friends! Happy Monday to ya. How was the weekend? Ours has been filled with Disney parades, watching the girls meet all of their favorite princesses, macarons the size of my face, lots of rides, and so much holiday fun. I’ll share a recap soon, but I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to! I hope that you had a fun and relaxing weekend, and that those of my friends who were hit by snow are staying warm, safe and cozy.

Today, the gift guide fun continues with holiday gifts and under $50 faves. I know we all have a frenzy of holiday parties on the horizon, and for hostess gifts, I try to switch things up from the usual flowers or bottles of wine. (As someone who loves to host, these things are always appreciated and lovely, I just try to think of something a little different when I attend parties.)

Hostess

Here are some of the fun hostess gifts I’ve found, plus some under $50 gift ideas if you’re searching for a smaller gift for a friend or family member. 

Holiday Gift Guide 2018 Hostess Gifts and Under 50

Hostess gifts and under $50!

Gifts for the hostess with the mostess:

– Mini hand creams

Handcreams

– Truffle salt

– Unique honey set

– Marble cutting board

– Cute apron

– New Chrissy Teigen cookbook

Cookbook

– Rewined candle. I LOOOOVE these candles for hostess gifts. PHLUR makes incredible candles, too, but they’re a bit more pricey. 

– This cute succulent and candle combo

– Cheeky kitchen towels. These are hilarious and so fun. 

– Mini oil dipper set

 

Under $50 gifts:

– Leopard furry slippers. I got these a couple of weeks ago and wear them nonstop. They’re super comfy and cushy with a fun leopard print.

 Jade roller. Liv has borrowed mine…forever… but I’m a huge fan of this one for decreasing puffiness and waking me up.

– Bombas socks. These have always been an easy holiday gift and everyone loves them. The other night at my mom’s house, my entire family was wearing Bombas socks.

– Lounge pants for men

Love this cozy beanie

– These gorgeous mini stud earrings

– The BEST sleep mask. It’s a bit on the pricey side, but is incredible quality and washes really well. (I just hand wash in cold water and it looks new.)

– This sugar lip set.

– Pet print. Such an awesome way to honor someone’s furry BFF.

– A super cozy throw

– A small capri blue candle

 

So tell me, friends: what’s your go-to hostess gift? 

What’s your favorite thing that you own that was under $50?
