9 Homebody Gift Ideas for Folks Who Like to Entertain

Will you be entertaining for Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas or New Year’s? I love to have a pot of this potpourri simmering.

I can already hear a few moans out there, blogland. Because if you are more of the ‘life of the party’ type of “entertainer,” these gift ideas may evoke hives, giggles, or violence toward this fairy.

But bear with me.

The eyes of this blogging hostess LIGHT UP like the Griswold home at the thought of these ideas for entertaining types!

Why These Gifts Will Tingle Their Jingles

Everybody Loves These!

1. I love my mercury glass votive holders, vases, and candleholders from Pottery Barn! They never go out of style, are perfect for the holidays, and are not too blingy to use throughout the year. Dim the lights, sprinkle these throughout your home, and wait for the “ahhhhhs.”

Classic & Collectible

2. I showed you my vintage Lenox Holiday bone china bowl (24k gold rim) the other day, and for the price, IT IS SIMPLY THE PERFECT gift for hostesses and non-hostesses alike. What’s it for?

Lenox Holiday Bowl. You'll love these 9 Awesome Gift Ideas for Folks Who Like to Entertain plus a bunch of holiday entertaining essentials! #entertaining #giftguide #holidaygiftguide

Here are a few ideas:

1.  Receptacle for red and green M&M’s.

2. Bowl for nuts.

3. Fill with water to float roses.

4. Surround a votive candle with fresh cranberries.

WHAT WAS I SAYING ABOUT M&Ms?

Red and green Christmas holiday m&m's...yum! #christmas #m&ms

Because now all I can think is what I can do with ’em…ya know?

I mean, snowman ear muffs.

Years of Use & Cheerful Color

3. I don’t decorate with red in the rest of our house, but in the kitchen, it is such an appetizing, cheerful color for essentials like this dutch oven! The bonus is red cast iron pieces look wonderful on the stove (whether they are getting used or not!) during the holidays.

In case you want to say ‘yer hot’

4. This Hot Sauce gift is perfect for cooks and entertainers with a sense of FUN!

So chic on every table

5. Whether the hostess appreciates modern, Scandinavian, minimal, or simple chic style, this black candelabra will look stunning on the table.

Practical and Healthy

6. Yes, indeed a nonstick grill pan…this hostess with the mostess uses hers almost every single evening! It makes for happy dinner guests and healthier, non-fried yum.

The splurge

7. I can’t think of a cook or entertainer who wouldn’t be stoked to see this hard working crimson bad boy under the tree.

Everybody’s Using ‘Em

8. This pot was all the rage last Christmas, and seems to be gaining momentum for its instant ability to create delish.

Less Dishes to Clean

9. White Bowls Go From Oven to Table…and don’t you love how the little wood stand elevates their importance?

    Hi Michele,
    I’ve officially switched over to fancy Christmas anxiety! I’ve only purchased one gift so far and I decided to keep it for myself!

      Hahahaha – I keep meaning to shop but have only picked up a few decorations and craft supplies and no gifts yet! Hope you are riding high in the wake of the big show which looked so delightful. I love that all of those fashion students were involved! How special is that! 🙂
