Can you believe it's gift giving time? I love buying presents for my friends and family… but I always struggle on buying special gifts that will be well received, not this year! I love all of the ideas below and I can't wait to start giving them out. Thank you to EVITE®, and Cavit for sponsoring this post on Holiday Hostess Gifts They’ll Actually Use.


I have so many people on my gift list because I love buying gifts and making people smile. It's what makes the holidays extra fun for me. I start making my list in October and as I think of ideas I add them to it. Although this year I could have skipped that all together because this list has something for everyone and they are things they will actually use and love!



Let's start with these Handpainted Atoll Measuring Spoons.

At only $16 they are a great choice to give and receive. Handpainted measuring spoons make such a colorful gift! These would be perfect for my mother in law or anyone that loves to cook and bake.






You can't go wrong with candy. 

The Original Peppermint Bark, priced at $29 is handmade and the peppermint flavor is from natural peppermint oils… doesn't that sound fabulous? Boxed chocolates are a fun gift… but this takes it up a notch in the candy department.






Get your wine loving friends something that sparkles!

Lunetta Sparkling Wines are a great gift at $11. Wine that sparkles is always a gift that will get used! Buy a few bottles to have on hand for gifts this season and always have an awesome gift ready to go!





This is a gift that is adorable and makes life better.

I am in love with this Home Sweet Hideaway Dish Towel Set for $18. These Printed tea towels are perfect for the entertainer on your list… or anyone that likes to bring a touch of the holidays into their kitchen.












Everyone could use a beautiful cheese board. 

The Soho Cheese Board and Server, is priced at only $15! This awesome black stoneware server is perfect for nuts and cheeses and looks beautiful with fresh fruit too! This is definitely something everyone will love and get lot's of use out of.

  1. I would love to receive so many of these gifts. Typically people just come to our house without gifts but I always bring gifts when I visit someone else’s house. Boo. Maybe I should forward this to them?!?

  2. Those are adorable measuring spoons! And that’s right, you can never go wrong with candy!!! I love the ideas, thanks for sharing!

  3. Oh I like that cheese board! I often have a hard time finding gifts for people, I think what if they already have something like this. These are very nice suggestions!

  4. The wine looks really good. I sometimes have a hard time finding things to buy my parents but eventually if you just listen and spend time with them you find out what they need.
