1. Old Havana Mug ($12 at Anthropologie)

Give this beautiful mug along with a box of tea your hostess can enjoy as a relaxing break after all the entertaining is over. Anthropologie has a wide selection of mugs to choose from, with intricate designs and pretty details.

2. Terrain Cast Stone Flower Planter  ($18 at Terrain)

This do-it-yourself gift will last long after that holiday meal has been eaten. The kit includes concrete mix (to create your own planter) as well as dirt and flower seeds. Terrain also sells fresh garlands and wreaths, which would also be a welcome addition to holiday decorations.

3. Moustache Bottle Stopper ($24 at Jonathan Adler)

Change up the classic hostess gift, a bottle of wine, by giving a quirky bottle stopper that’ll also be a conversation starter. It’s guaranteed to be put to use during the holidays.

4. Birchbox: Home Edition ($58 at Birchbox)

Birchbox is mostly known for their monthly packages of beauty samples, but this holiday season, they’ve created a home edition box filled with an array of items fit for a hostess. The box includes everything from a spatula set to room fragrances.

5. Fringe Gothic Foil Square Tray ($25 at Bloomingdale’s)

This printed tray would be an on-trend addition to your hostess’s kitchen. Make it even better by giving the tray filled with baked goods (bonus: it’s shareable with fellow guests).

These unique gifts can continue to be used long even after this holiday season ends. Show your appreciation for your hostess’s hospitality… and you may even get invited back next year!
