Holiday Hostess Gift Guide

Hosting a holiday dinner takes time, commitment and preparation. Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and we have many more holiday dinners and parties to come! So, we’re showing how thankful we are for the queens (or kings) of entertaining by sharing our favorite hostess gifts!

Bissinger’s Chocolate Confections
Chocolate is always a great hostess gift, but to make things a little more interesting this year, we’re bringing a sweet treat with a twist! Bissinger’s Centerpiece Chocolate Turkey made our must-give list for Thanksgiving, and we can’t wait to give out these 17” tall Chocolate Santas. Both weigh in at a whopping three lbs. (that’s before anyone sneaks a bite!). These indulgent centerpieces might spark a fun, new tradition to be continued for years- especially when paired with mini hammers so everyone can dig in!


Fresh Fall Flowers
Who doesn’t love a beautiful bouquet of flowers!? For a last minute gift, we pickup fresh flowers at Pike Place or a local market. With fall colors, a beautiful bouquet is a perfect addition to the Thanksgiving table.

Sweet Treat
Want to add a little variety to the dessert table? Bring a dozen (or two) Mighty-O donuts. With a flavor like Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice, it will be hard not to snag one on your way to Thanksgiving dinner.


Caffeine Surge
With our offices above a Starbucks, we always have coffee on our minds. The Starbucks Thanksgiving Blend is a festive drink to cap the night and your host will enjoy it for the week to come, too.



Personalized Cutting Board
For a beloved friend of family member, we love the idea of a custom gift. Order an adorable personalized cutting board from Etsy for a fun and useful gift that can be used for years to come.


Pinky Up Tea and Accessories
After a long day of cooking, cleaning and entertaining, your host will be ready for some downtime. Grab an adorable mug and a yummy tea (like this Tiramusu flavor from Pinky Up) so they can celebrate a holiday well-done.


Balance fun and practicality with a gift that can be used for the day and future get-togethers, too. Your hostess will love these fun coasters, and they’ll serve a beautiful and useful purpose year-round!
