Gift Guide: Host Gifts Under $50

Hey loves! I have the first gift guide of the season. I decided to start with host gifts because holiday party season is starting. Whether it’s for Friendsgiving, American Thanksgiving (which I don’t celebrate), and of course all the parties we have in December!

When going to these parties, it’s so important to bring host gifts. Even if it’s something small like a dish to pass or even a bottle of wine. But there are also times, where you need a more personal gift. Maybe the host loves candles, homeware or books. I’ve basically got them all. And they are all under $50!

Host Gifts Under $50

I love this couch guest book (17) from Oliver Bonas. Zoe Sugg (Zoella) has a bathroom guest book and I think it’s genius. Whenever someone comes to visit, they can leave a little entry in the book. When I get my own place, I really want one for my living room.

I also really like the book ” How Not To Kill Your House Plants. (15)I know so many people have issues with keeping plants alive, me included and I feel like it’s perfect.

You can also never go wrong with candles. These mini Voluspa ones(15), you can buy and give them to multiple people. This big Voluspa (12) one is also gorgeous. And I also love the print of this Rifle Paper Company one (20). Or if they aren’t big on candles, a reed diffuser  (6) is a good choice.

I personally think you can never have enough blankets. This grey one (1) from Nordstrom looks so luxurious. It’s perfect for snuggling up on the couch.

Homeware gifts are also great. I really love these metallic metal spoons (2) and this rose gold pineapple ice bucket (3. so I just realized this is actually $78. I must have left the currency in GBP) from Oliver Bonas. Mugs and glasses are also a good idea. This hello gorgeous mug (10) is so cute. And I love these personalized mugs (14). As you know I love rose gold and I would love to receive these wine glasses(18).

Basically, you cannot go wrong with any of these gifts. Always remember to never show up to a party empty handed!


P.S. The Nordstrom Fall Sale is still going on!

  • Amazing selection. I loved all of them but much in need of the How Not to Kill your Plants Book which is totally for me, I manage to kill them even when I care for them very closely and water them everyday. The cocktail party sounds delicious and the candle I am in so much need of relaxation right now you. Thanks a lot babe. Have a wonderful day. xoxo Cris
