1 ~ Flameless Pillar Candles
Flameless candles are perfect for a friend that likes to entertain. This set is awesome, and doesn’t disappoint!
There are 9 pillar candles and a remote control!! Yes, that’s right – a remote control, so you can turn them on and off with a click of a button. The flame flickers so it looks realistic, AND the remote has a timer, too!
Imagine ~ you can set and forget them.
And, since they are flameless, you don’t need to worry about melting wax or anything catching fire. Plus, they are fragrance-free. Perfect for a dining table, a fireplace mantel, or a vignette around the house.
Your friend will LOVE this gift!!
2~ White Linen Hemstitch Napkins
There is absolutely no way you can go wrong with giving the gift of white linen hemstitch napkins!
Linen is such a wonderful feeling fabric, especially when used for napkins. And the classic/elegant look of hemstitch along the sides of the napkin is wonderful.
Any host/hostess would love to receive them. Linen hemstitch napkins can be used for casual or elegant meals. They are so easy to dress up or dress down.
And you can never have too many white napkins!
3~ Cheese Board Set
This cheese board set is SO unique! Just look at it.
There’s storage space for the cheese knives hidden inside the board! Isn’t that awesome!! They’ll never get lost or misplaced. Plus it comes with four serving bowls. Perfect for nuts, olives, or any other tidbits.
And then there’s the cheese board itself. So nice and compact. It will be easy to store when not being used.
I love this cheese board set! (I’m putting this one on my Christmas wish list!)
4~ Taco Holders
Tacos are so fun to eat, but serving them on a regular platter isn’t the greatest presentation. That’s why these taco holders are a perfect gift for your host/hostess. Plus they can go into the oven or on the grill, and they’re dishwasher safe!
And since it comes in packs of four, each person can have their own holder, or they can be lined down the table for guests to pick their tacos.
Your friend will love this gift. Something that is truly unique, and I doubt she/he has!
5~ Loose Leaf Tea Pot
Is your friend a tea drinker? If so, this is a fantastic gift for her/him.
Not only will it make fabulous tasting loose tea, but the clear glass really makes the tea look delicious. You’ll be able to see the color of the tea change and steep.
It’s a wonderful way to serve tea to guests. Plus it’s stovetop, microwave, and dishwasher safe. Bonus!
6~ Wine Decanter
The unique shape of this wine decanter is simply stunning! It’s so elegant, it’s practically a piece of art. In fact, it can be on display when not being used.
Imagine your friend pouring red wine from it. What a wonderful impression it will make on their guests.
It even comes with a foam cleaning brush – nice!
7~ Pillar Candle Holder
These matte black pillar candle holders’ shape is so unique, your hostess will surely love them. They aren’t the typical straight-line candle holder.
They have a classic modern vibe, but with a different look. And you’ve gotta love that they’re a set of 2. So they can be paired together or used separately.
These pillar candle holders would look fabulous as part of a centerpiece, or on a fireplace mantle.
8~ Shot Glass Server
Okay, I’m not a drinker, but this shot glass server is amazing! It makes serving shots SO easy, fun, and cute all at once.
And, if you don’t want to use it for shots, you could make bite-size desserts or appetizers and use it to serve them. Fun!!
I bet your friend doesn’t have one of these, lol!
9~ Small Ceramic Bud Vases
I love small bud vases! The simplicity of these white ceramic ones is something any hostess will love.
Bud vases are fantastic for extending the life of a large bouquet of flowers. Take the remaining blooms and place them in the bud vases.
Plus they are perfect for creating a simple, minimalist look on any table.
10~ Gem Drink Picks
These drink picks are a great way to dress up and add a bit of bling to cocktails. What host wouldn’t love them?
Instead of using those wooden skewers, these gem drink picks will definitely “class-up” the drinks. Plus guests can tell their drinks apart because of the different colored gems.
Double-duty. It’s a win-win gift!
11~ Salt Box & Spoon
Your host will adore this salt box and spoon. No more salt shaker or grinder. This unique gift is simple, elegant, and useful. It checks all the boxes!
Wouldn’t you love it if your hostess sat this salt box on the table, so you could sprinkle a little salt on your food?
*The best thing about these 11 unique last-minute hostess gifts is that they are all available on Amazon right now, with plenty of time to get to you or your friend.
Time to get shopping, lol!
