Can you believe it’s already November? I can’t get over how fast this year has flown by! Before you know it, it’s going to be a new year! One of my favorite things about this time of year is all of the opportunities to get together with family, friends, and neighbors. Hosting a party is a lot of work, and I usually like to bring them a little something to say “thank you”. While you can’t go wrong bringing a bottle of wine, sometimes it’s nice to bring something a little different. I’ve got you covered with 10 great hostess gifts all under $10. Order a few now, and you’ll be all set for the upcoming party season!

1. Dessert Plate
One of my favorite things to bring to a party is dessert! These holiday plates (similar) are so festive, and you won’t have to worry about getting your plate back. It’s also a great way to bring over your store bought desserts.
2. Cheese Labels
Whenever I’m hosting a get-together, we always have several different types of cheese set out as an appetizer. What host wouldn’t love getting these cheese labels at their party? And, they’ll probably put them to use right away!
3. Cheese Tools
We’re big cheeseheads around here. No, really! My husband grew up in Wisconsin and is a huge Packers fan. He’s even got my boys brainwashed. But, football aside, we always have lots of cheese when we have friends over, and these cheese tools would be awesome for entertaining. I’d like to apologize now for this post being so cheesy. Da duh dum! Ok, I’m done now.
4. Dip Bowl
I love this little reindeer bowl and spreader (Sorry, the reindeer bowl is no longer available, but I’ve found another cute option)! It’s perfect for anyone that likes to entertain at the holidays.
5. Wine Bottle Stopper
Wine and holiday parties kind of go hand in hand, and a snowflake stopper will be a fun way to celebrate all the way through New Year’s Eve.

This little carafe doubles as an awesome vase. Pick up some flowers beforehand, do a quick arranging, and you’re all set. You may also want to check out this easy way to arrange grocery store bouquets to have it looking like you picked them up at a florist.
7. Festive Wine Glasses
These wine glasses (unfortunately, these aren’t available any longer, but I’ve found something almost identical) are such a great deal, and they’re on sale right now if you order them online. They are a great thing to keep on hand for when you need an unexpected gift this holiday season.
8. Drink Coasters
Marble and copper. Do I need to say anything more about these chic drink coasters?
9. Wine Bottle Coaster
I have a few different wine bottle coasters, and I love them for keeping drips off my surfaces.
10. Bottle Opener
This feather bottle opener makes me want to grab a beer right now just so I can use it. Ok, maybe that also has something to do with my husband being out of town for the last 4 days, and I’ve been alone with the kids, but even if that weren’t the case, I would love to use this opener.
Now is the perfect time to pick up a few hostess gifts so that you don’t have to worry about it later when you’re in a rush. They’re great for all your holiday parties and family get-togethers, but they also work for neighbor gifts or whenever you’re in need of a sudden present.
I try to keep the presentation simple for hostess gifts, and instead of wrapping them, I really love how they look with just a bright ribbon tied around them and a sprig of rosemary or a pine cutting. I especially love to loop the rosemary around so that it looks like a mini wreath and tie it on with the ribbon. It’s just an added touch that makes the gift feel a little more special. If you’re already planning to bring a beverage, you can also tie bottle stoppers or openers around a bottle of wine or beer.
So, are you the one doing the hosting this year or do you get to just hang out and enjoy the fun? What is one of your favorite hostess gifts that you’ve given or received?
