The best hostess gifts, in my opinion, are those that the recipient can truly enjoy! Not put the hostess gift in a cupboard and forget about it.


Wine is one of the best hostess gifts ever! I love bringing wine over to parties. It’s simple, easy, and typically a welcome addition. I ordered one of these boxes from Winc, and the wines inside came naked! No foil around the top.

You can head down to the bakery and pick one up in your own cloth bag to keep it zero waste, or you can always bake some yourself. Either way, it’s one of the best last-minute hostess gift ideas because you can truly wait until the day of the party.

Olive oil is a great addition to a loaf of bread or a great stand-alone hostess gift. I especially enjoy bringing locally infused olive oil. Amphora Nueva is one of my favorite shops in the bay. They have some of the tastiest infused oils.

Super easy last minute hostess gift idea! I love bringing plants to housewarming parties. Nothing says welcome home like a plant, baby! If you buy plants from a local nursery, you can turn the plastic pots back in!
