Can you believe it? The Holidays are nearly here, and – if you’re like the majority of shoppers – you’re scrambling to put together last-minute Holiday gift ideas.
If you’re lucky enough to be hosted by friends or family for your Holiday dinner, you might also be scrambling to find last-minute gift ideas for the Host in your life.
Why not show your Host just how appreciative you are of their efforts with a thoughtful, personalized gift? Even if you’re shopping last-minute, there are so many options to choose from. We’ve even pulled together our favorite last minute gift ideas below.
1. Personal Cutting Boards
It’s true – you can purchase cutting boards from nearly ever home and interior design storefront you walk into, but why not find something personal for your host? We love these cutting boards from AHeirloom, but you can find some simple additions at your local craft store, too.
(If you’re thinking ahead next time, you can get these AHeirloom cutting boards personalized with a monogram, date, or short phrase. How about a New Year gift?)
2. Guest Towels
Everyone loves new guest towels – and the best part is that you can always find colors and accents to match. Even if you’ve never stepped food into your Host’s home, select your towels from a neutral color palette. Guest towels can add glitz and glamour to even the smallest and darkest spots, like the bathroom.
3. Unique Candles
Everyone loves candles, right? Unique and quirky candles are popping up everywhere. Take Coal and Canary, for example. A small business out of Winnipeg, Canada, they were featured and included in the GRAMMY Award Gift Bags for 2015. If they’re good enough for celebrities, quirky candles will be just perfect for your Host. Grab a few unique candles from your local craft store, or order online before your Holiday dinner.
4. Creative Coasters
A sophisticated set of coasters will be the perfect accompaniment with your presence at your Holiday dinner. There are some fabulous options that you can purchase both online and at your local stores. This set from Etsy is to die for; made from unique and sturdy materials, this option would look sleek, classy and modern on any table. You can find alternatives (and similar options) at a local Anthropologie or interior decor brick and mortar location for last-minute pick-up.
5. Wine Decanters
You can never have enough decanters, right? When it comes to wine decanters, the more unique – the better. We love wine decanters that can help tell a story, or even begin a conversation. Having an item that can sit on your table with a lively, off-kilter attitude is the perfect addition to any dinner party – and a Host gift that will always be remembered.
From our family to yours, we wish you the happiest of Holidays this year! Whether you are celebrating with friends or enjoying quality time with family, we hope you enjoy the time ahead.
