5 CREATIVE HOSTESS GIFTS (FOR LESS THAN $15)

You know those awesomely inspiring (and if we’re being totally honest, jealousy-inducing) people in your life that always seem to have the perfect gift for every occasion? That friend of yours who brings you the perfect candle in your favorite scent when you’ve hosted Book Club, or the cousin who brings over the most thoughtful thank-you during Thanksgiving festivities.

How do some people always have the perfect gift in mind for every occasion? And how can YOU be that person? The key is planning ahead, and stocking up on a handful of sweet, pretty, and thoughtful gifts that you can keep on-hand and pull out when the moment is right. (And let’s be honest, with the number of festivities during the holiday season, there are all too many of these moments coming our way.)

Luckily for you, we’ve scoured Etsy for a handful of fun, thoughtful, and unique gifts that you can count on to delight any hostess who you gift them to. And bonus – since they all come from local artisans, you can be sure your picks will be fresh and special to whoever is on the receiving end.
