1. Gnome Bottle Opener ($25): First up, how awesome is this gilded gnome? And it opens bottles! What. If you’re attending a holiday event at my place anytime soon, feel free to bring this as a gift ;)
2. Celadon Origami Placemat ($24): Placemats might not be the most traditional of hostess gifts, but we love the geometric pattern on this one.
3. Octagonal Plates ($92): For the hostess with the mostest, go for a set of these unconventional octagonal plates. They nest beautifully and add a touch of modern flair to any table.
4. Carat Wine Stopper ($50): Feel free to cue up any Rihanna song involved diamonds when you gift this to your host.
5. Wood Classics Jannik Salt & Pepper Shakers ($23): Don’t these look sort of mid century modern? We love the combo of woodgrain and beautifully smooth silver.
6. Wonderland Rabbit Candleholder ($100): All those holiday parties starting to feel like a confetti-filled rabbit hole? ;)
7. Gilded Weave Vera Wang Teapot ($270): Definitely a splurge gift, the combination of gilded style and intricate pattern is an instant win in our books.
8. Persimmon Cross Dots Napkin ($12): Never underestimate the power of cloth napkins — they’re a surefire way to elevate any dinner party or get-together to 11.
9. Birdie Brand Matches ($5): While we love the look of candles on a table, matches tend to look random and lighters are even worse. Get your hostess a cute box of matches she can incorporate into her tablescape.
10. 1815 Casual Pitcher ($40): Love the subtle blue-dipped corner of this beautifully crafted pitcher.
11. Totem Cups ($72): This fun display of cups is perfect for after dinner tea, coffee, or mulled apple cider ;)
12. Grey Origami Tea Towel ($15): You can never have too many tea towels! This geometric pattern would go swimmingly with the origami placemat earlier in this roundup
