Favourite Hostess Gifts under $20.

Lots of holiday parties, lots of fun, lots of hostess gifts. 

Here's the deal, if we're going to be having wine at a party, we usually take a bottle no matter what. My friends do the same. So in addition, we also give a little hostess gift. It's nice to give the hostess something for all her hard work, prepping the house and a meal for you. Usually less than $20 though we spend more if we are over night guests. 

Wine pens are awesome. If you don't have one, now's the time to make that purchase for your next party or for a hostess who serves wine (ie most people on the planet)

Candles- one of my go-tos; these are my new faves from voluspa. 

Handmade or artisanal items- decadent handmade soaps or body butters from an artisal or farmer's market is always a lovely treat that someone doesn't usually purchase for themselves.

Nailpolish- One of my friends once attached a nailpolish to a bottle of wine and I thought it was the cutest gift ever.

Family treats: Tins of popcorn, bottles of  gourmet hot chocolate,chutneys,  caramel sauces-- such fun gifts for the whole family. 

Festive holiday napkins are so fun for the hostess to use during the season. 

Home made treats like jams, cookies or a banana bread for the next morning are wonderful treats.
Ring tray- this one is less than $10 

Monogrammed mugs- such a pretty mug that I think I've brought for my entire family and multiple ones for myself. This one is also so pretty.

What are your favourite hostess gifts to give? Or get? :-)
