Aug 31 2022 - 12:57pm

Arriving empty handed to a party is a no-no (unless your host insists, of course), but bringing a standard bottle of wine [1] can get tired, too. Ahead of the holiday-season gift-buying craziness, why not stock up on some standout gifts for those special hosts who are always throwing a party? You'll be grateful you stocked up sooner rather than later.

To spark some gifting inspiration, we've curated a guide to 20 perfect party gifts they'll love. There are options for every budget, and picks run the gamut from highly covetable candles [2] to thoughtful homewares [3] that are not only chic but super thoughtful, too. Shop our picks ahead, and we guarantee you'll get invited back again and again.

Opalhouse Patterned Tin Candle Gift Set

The Opalhouse Patterned Tin Candle Gift Set [4] ($10) comes packaged and ready to gift. We love how all three of the candles come in different floral-patterned tins that will infuse their space with good vibes.

16-Ounce Old Dutch Moscow Mule Mugs

They can tuck away this trusty set of 16-Ounce Old Dutch Moscow Mule Mugs [5] ($30, originally $91) for the next party if they don't want to use them right away — or do just that and whip up a mix of Moscow mules to serve to all their friends.

DAVIDsTEA Top Teas Sachet Tea Wheel

If they're a tea drinker, they'll lose it over the DAVIDsTEA Top Teas Sachet Tea Wheel [6] ($39), which includes a total of 36 tea sachets and 12 different flavors. There's a mix of traditional teas, relaxing herbal infusions, and fresh and fruity blends. They'll have so much fun trying the different kinds and choosing a favorite.

Coffee Mugs, Set of 4

The host in your life will receive so many compliments on the Coffee Mugs, Set of 4 [7] ($23). They look so much more expensive than they actually are, and they also come in gray, if you think that's more their style.

Blush Cocktail Shaker

How fun is the Blush Cocktail Shaker [8] ($25)? The set includes a shaker, jigger, strainer, and bar spoon, all in a playful oil-slick finish.

Canarels Decorative Bowl Set

The Canarels Decorative Bowl Set [9] ($23) looks luxe but costs less than $25 on Amazon. It comes with six bowls that are perfect for serving dips, salsas, candy — you name it.

Brightland Awake Extra Virgin Olive Oil

It's time you're introduced to Brightland Olive Oil, if you haven't been acquainted already. Not only will the brand's olive oils and vinegar look straight-up elegant on their counter, but they're also made in California, with no fillers or artificial preservatives. The host in your life will be thrilled to receive the Brightland Awake Extra Virgin Olive Oil [10] ($37); just don't forget to get one for yourself, too. For more info, check out our editor's review of Brightland Olive Oil [11].

Diptyque Feu de Bois Candle

Someone who's always hosting people definitely needs beautifully scented candles to set the vibe. The Diptyque Feu de Bois Candle [12] ($70) smells like the rich scent of a wood fire, which is perfect for a winter party. And it helps that the brand's candles double as chic decor.

Avaline The Essentials Wine Bundle

Avaline said it best: its products are "organically farmed wines full of natural goodness and free from unwanted and undisclosed extras." It's the brainchild of Cameron Diaz [13] and Katherine Power, and above all, it's delicious. The Essentials [14] ($72) is our top choice because it comes with a red, white, and rosé, so they can give 'em all a try and decide their favorite. Read our review of Avaline wine [15].

Vinglacé Wine Bottle Insulator

The Vinglacé Wine Bottle Insulator [16] ($90) keeps wine or bubbles chilled in style. The vacuum-insulated, stainless-steel canister comes in six different finishes, our favorite of which is this luxe copper.

Colored Wine Glass Set

The Stemless Colored Wine Glass Set [17] ($30) is breathtakingly pretty, so be warned: you'll want a set for yourself, too. If you know they have enough stemless glasses, they also come in a stemmed option [18] ($70).

Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Throw Blanket

The Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Throw Blanket [19] ($147) is hands down the coziest blanket money can buy, and if the host in your life doesn't have one already, they need one (though they probably wouldn't pass up a second). You can't go wrong with scooping up the cream color, but it comes in eight other hues as well. What's more, Joanna Gaines says it's one of her most beloved belongings [20], and she's so obsessed that she calls it her "adult baby blanket."

Picnic at Ascot Convertible 6-Piece Charcuterie Set

If they've been meaning to take their charcuterie-board game to the next level, the Picnic at Ascot Convertible 6-Piece Charcuterie Set [21] ($72) will get the job done. Crafted from bamboo, it comes with three cheese tools in a hidden drawer, a ceramic dipping bowl, and a spoon.

Chalkboard Cheese Markers, Set of 6

The Chalkboard Cheese Markers [22] ($10, originally $15) are the perfect accompaniment for their cheeseboard. The set comes with six signpost-shaped markers with rectangle chalkboards for labeling each one.

Nest New York Bamboo & Grapefruit Reed Diffuser Duo

The Nest New York Bamboo & Grapefruit Reed Diffuser Duo [23] ($78) comes with a set of two reed diffusers crafted with high-quality oils that release scent evenly into the air for approximately 90 days. A convenient bonus is that they come packaged in an elegant box that's perfect for gifting.

Sugarfina Sweet & Sparkling 2.0 3-Piece Candy Bento Box

The Sugarfina Sweet & Sparkling 2.0 3-Piece Candy Bento Box [24] ($30) will make their parties so much sweeter. This pretty-packaged set comes with Champagne Bears, Sparkle Pops, and Bubbly Bears, each of which comes in the brand's signature Lucite boxes.

Kin Euphorics Sleep/Social Duo

The Kin Euphorics Sleep/Social Duo [25] ($69) includes one bottle each of the brand's High Rhode and Dream Light, which are nonalcoholic, made-to-mix spirits featuring adaptogens, nootropics, and botanics. High Rhode is caffeinated and born for social settings, while Dream Light contains melatonin to help them sleep soundly when the party's over. Read our editor's review of Kin Euphorics [26].

Venus et Fleur Le Mini Round

The Venus et Fleur Le Mini Round [27] ($44) is a gift they'll cherish. Unlike a traditional bouquet, the brand's flowers last a year or longer, thanks to its patented preservation technology. Read our review of Venus et Fleur arrangements [28].

Shaker & Spoon Gift Set

Gifting a normal bottle of wine is cool, but a Shaker & Spoon Gift Set [29] ($59 and up) is an experience they won't forget. Each box is built around one spirit and comes with recipe cards and all of the ingredients they'll need to make 12 cocktails (four from each recipe). A note: it doesn't come with the alcohol; that needs to be purchased separately.

Aesop Reverence Aromatique Hand Wash

If they have yet to experience the Aesop Reverence Aromatique Hand Wash [30] ($40), it might just change their life. The formula includes finely milled pumice that gently exfoliates to leave their hands feeling super soft and smooth.
