Gift Guide {Gifts to Say Thank You; Under $60}

With the holidays fast-approaching, dinner parties, get-togethers, and other fun events are on the horizon. My mom (and Bubby) always taught me to bring a little something special for the gracious host or hostess to say “thank you,” and I’ve actually always loved coming up with sweet ways to thank these awesome party-throwers. They are, after all, working hard to throw one great party for everyone to enjoy!

Tips when shopping for gifts to say, “Thank you!”:

  • Bring/Buy something your hosts would truly enjoy. (If they’re big foodies, a kitchen gift is always a winner; if they like to have fun, cute shot glasses or a vintage-inspired decanter might be the way to go; if they’re house is always immaculate; a yummy candle or set of linen hand towels should do the trick; etc.)
  • Keep tabs on what your friends like or have expressed interest in. (If they always compliment you on the coffee you serve, package up a bag of your favorite coffee with two awesome mugs; etc.)
  • Consider where they live. If your host/hostess call a tiny apartment home, don’t bring a giant basket full of stuff; if they’ve just moved into a new home, consider something you love for your home or something local to their new area; etc.)
  • Think about the whole family. Are their kids and/or pets? Maybe there’s something the whole family would enjoy.
  • Don’t spend too much. For your very best friends, you can of course spend a little more if you’ve found something extra-thoughtful, but trust me, a gift in the $10 – $30 range can be just as special, and you can easily keep it under $60.
