Gift Guide: Hostess (Fun, Thoughtful Finds Under $30!)

Under $30 Gifts, Great for Hostess

You can easily bring flowers, or a bottle of wine, and be a successful party guest. I’m actually all for the wine, naturally, however why not spend roughly the same amount and give your hard-working hostess something to enjoy long after the party has ended? A majority of the gifts below are under $30 and are fun, whimsical and thoughtful ways to show your bff, mom or co-worker you care.

[TAGG TIP: If you are bringing flowers, try to bring them in a vase or instead go for a potted plant — I love an orchid. As gorgeous as flowers are to receive, nothing is harder than trying to find a vase, trim flowers and get them situated as you’re also trying to welcome a dozen guests at once.]

    I can vouch for the power of gold office supplies – I have a gold stapler and work and everyone flips out over it.

    Some very good ideas! I’m hunting around for a gift for my boyfriends mom – who is one of those ladies who seems like she already has EVERYTHING.

      What about an experience the three of you can do together? Maybe a concert or show? A wine tasting? A gift certificate to a restaurant she loves? A gorgeous frame with a photo of her with your boyfriend? brainstorming here. 🙂
