Show up with anyone of these amazing Christmas gifts for the hostess and it will guarantee a future invite.

1. A Great Wine Chiller

The festive season is fast approaching and that means it’s time to break out the bubbly or a bottle of wine. This stainless steel wine chiller from Nordstrom is the perfect solution for keeping adult beverages cool. It’s available in a variety of pastel shades (and white) – the vacuum technology is not only effective but the design is also eye-catching. Just unscrew the lid, insert the bottle and wait for the company to arrive.

2. Cake Stand

Looking for gifts for hostess who likes to bake cakes or share recipes on her personal blog? Afternoon tea or that special occasion is simply not complete without that special cake. Make sure that the cake she bakes is the center of attention with a stoneware cake stand from H&M. Variegated coloring, timeless and minimalist design and an asymmetric rim means that this beige stand will simply never go out of style. It’s 3 inches in height with a diameter of 10.5 inches making it suitable for just about any cake creation. If the hostess in your life is a baker, this will make an excellent gift.

It’s the season for entertaining – and for many people that means taking to the kitchen to produce delicious and nutritious meals for both family and friends.

They are made using only the best grade of silicon, meaning they are incredibly flexible and heat resistant up to 650 degrees. Magnets and loops mean that there are multiple hanging options.

Longer length means more forearm protection. Made with cotton outers and terry-cloth inners they are attractive and machine washable. Available in a variety of colors to match any kitchen decor. Pot holders have a hole in the back that allows a hand to be slipped inside for added convenience of use and extra control. One of my favorite Christmas gifts for the hostess!

For the hostess who will be serving great wine to guests, the Le Chateau Wine Decanter is a gift that will bring years of pleasure. This 750 ml decanter (perfect for a standard bottle) and wine aerator is hand-blown from lead-free crystal. The classic, yet modern design is timeless – it provides a stylish accessory for any wine lover. It’s gorgeous design makes it another one of my favorite hostess gifts.

Jo Malone London has produced a limited edition candle set that will not only fill the home with delightful fragrances – but also consists of candles that are among the most loved of Jo Malone’s creations. I’m a huge fan of Jo Malone fragrances so I definitely approve of this gift.

The set consists of the 7 oz ‘English Pear and Freesia Scented’ home candle which immediately evokes the gentle Autumn scent of the English countryside and the 7 oz ‘Lime Basil and Mandarin Scented’ home candle which is a refreshing citrus mix with subtle hints of white thyme and peppery basil.
