Hostess Gifts: DIY, Non-Edible Holiday Themed

A bottle of wine or some flowers are always nice to give when going to someone’s home — especially if you are in a rush and need to just pick up something on the way.  However, homemade gifts are always a sweet and thoughtful way to thank someone for opening up their home to you.  Below are some great examples of DIY, non-edible holiday themed hostess gifts that other bloggers have made that will hopefully inspire you.  Please note that some are meant to be hostess gifts, and some are projects that I think would make a wonderful hostess gift!  Click on the image or the link to be taken to their post for a tutorial.


Mrs and the Misc created these fun and whimsical Holiday Kitchen Towels that make a special hostess gift.


These Mason Jar Snow Globes by For The Love of The South are so fun to share regardless of what climate you live in!


Pillows A-La Mode created these very cute Mini-Pillow Ornaments that can brighten up any hostess’s day.


This gift by Cloches and Lavender combines some candy sweetness with a DIY Candy Cane Arrangement gift that your hostess will be able to keep.

    Thank you so much for the showing of my candy cane topiary. I am having a party on the 29th and everyone of the girls is going home with one. I have to get moving on making them.

    I love them all, Kenley! And thank you for the sweet shout out! I’ve been giving away my little ornaments like crazy to guests, hostesses, girlfriends, my writing group . . . 🙂

    I would love the towels, they’re so thoughtful (and unbreakable). I would hate the thought of dropping or breaking a gift, it would break my heart. You can’t break a towel : – ) and it would definitely get used!

      That is quite true — towels do not break! 🙂 And this particular one is so cute and perfect for the holidays! 🙂

    We received kitchen towels for Christmas a few years back, and we’re still using them year round!
