Get Ready for Holiday Gatherings with Hostess Gift Ideas!

When looking for alternative hostess gifts, most of us default to a bottle of wine - which is totally fine an appropriate! - but we want to set you up with creative ideas that we can help you with as you fill your social calendar this holiday season! 

Hostess Gift Idea #1: 

Decorative Dish Towels! We have a wonderful selection of tea towels that you can select from, with a variety of themes. (Shop Dish Towels here) Our Christmas designs are delightfully sweet, plus find animal themed, patterned, solid colours and more. Depending upon your budget, you can either take that bottle of wine you were planning to bring, and wrap it in a dish towel. If you are looking to invest a bit more with this gift idea, then purchase four towels - matching or similar themed, whichever you choose - roll each towel and tie with a ribbon, and place standing up in a small gift box (without a lid). 

Hostess Gift Idea #2:

Drink Markers! We have a selection of drink markers that you choose from, which the hostess may have overlooked getting and greatly appreciate your thoughtfulness! If you think it will be a larger gathering, you may want to pick up a few packs! 

Hostess Gift Idea #3:

Recipe Book! One of our faves is The Essential Cocktail Book by Megan Krigbaum (Shop it here) Want a recipe book about cooking and baking? Browse our other cook books online or come shop in store for our wide selection of recipe books!

Hostess Gift Idea #4:

Sweet or Savoury Jams, Chutneys and more! Did you know that we carry a selection of grocery items as well? From Saltspring Kitchen Co. (Shop online here) to tasty non-alcoholic bevvies and other treats (Shop them here) - including adult flavoured popcorn - you will find the perfect gift to bring with you!

With Heart of the Home, you can shop on our website and select for shipping or curbside pickup that you can select when you are checking out! You can also come visit us in person at our brick & mortar store located in the 124 Street shopping area at the Shops of High Street - 12539 102 Avenue, Edmonton. Come enjoy your holiday shopping with our friendly and helpful staff!
