Host & Hostess Gift Ideas

Happy Thanksgiving! The food stuffed family holiday is traditionally gift free, but don't be fooled. It's the gateway holiday to the major rush of annual gift giving that 'tis the season. And while presents don't make a splash today, it is always appropriate to bring a host or hostess gift, and to keep these smaller gifts on hand for giving at parties throughout the season.

The matte silver compact-like design is made from nickel plated brass, so it never needs polishing but the lid's reflective surface makes the most of a single votive. $25 from Scandinavian Details.
