10 Hostess Gift Ideas Under $50 – Hostess Holiday Guide

Holiday parties and soirees! How fun! I just love this time of the year. Not only do I enjoy having friends and family over, but I also love to ATTEND parties. UM… naturally! Please, someone invite me only. 🙂 LOL! If you are looking for some holiday hostess gift ideas, I found ten great options for under $50. As a couple, I don’t think that you need to spend more than that on an event. You can always bring a bottle of wine or a platter of homemade cookies. That absolutely works too! But if you don’t feel like making a mess of your kitchen and just want to grab something and go, here is a list of ideas that will be certain to please any host or hostess.

I found this pie dish at Target. Unfortunately, they don’t have a direct link to it. So, I’m not including it as part of my top ten. If you go to their “dollar bin” section, you will find a wide variety of options including several pie dishes for just FIVE BUCKS. You can absolutely bake a pie and bring it warm to the party OR you can grab a serving spoon, tie a little ribbon around it and call it a day. Curious about my dress? I bought that at Target, too! The Women’s Floral Print Long Sleeve Midi Dress is so easy and fits just right.

Ok, onto my official list.

What do you think about the items I chose for my hostess gift guide? Any of these work for you and your friends? Did I miss anything? What do you usually bring to a party? What do you like to receive? Typically, when we head to a friend’s house, we usually bring dessert because I know that guests are always looking for something sweet at the end of the night. But I really do appreciate something wrapped and special. It makes me feel that my friends really put some thought into the night.
