It’s time for the gift guide number two!
Last week, I shared my favorite gift ideas from the Hearth & Hand Collection at Target (which, by the way, if anyone needs ideas I’ll just take one of everything from that list), and today I’m back with the next guide in our series. I’ll be popping in every Saturday in November to share gift guides on different themes to help you get through the holiday shopping season.
Today’s gifts are for the hostess – that friend who loves to entertain, is always inviting people over for dinner, and always seems to be whipping up something delicious in her kitchen. These gifts are all perfect as hostess gifts for holiday parties, but they’re also perfect gifts for that friend who just has a heart for hospitality. Nothing on this list costs more than $50 – I don’t know about you, but my budget for Christmas gifts is usually pretty small, so I tried to keep that in mind as I was shopping.

I’m loving everything on this list, but I’m especially digging those Turkish Cotton tea towels (they’re so good in the kitchen!) and that gorgeous pie dish. Oh, and I wouldn’t be mad at that simple white pitcher, either. Can’t have too many.
One of my favorite things about these types of gifts is that they’re the sorts of things that the giftee will use on a regular basis in their home – and every time they do, they’ll probably think of you and your awesome gifting skills! I’m a huge fan of giving useful gifts that are also well-made and beautiful because I feel like that’s the sort of thing that most of us will never actually invest in. We’re usually more likely to keep the ol’ measuring spoons we’ve had for decades, when it would make us smile to have something new and pretty.
At least, I know it always makes me smile!
I’ll be back next week with another gift guide – but until then, I hope this guide helps you find a gift or two for the hostess in your life!
