Are you looking for great hostess gifts for the fall season? It’s always nice to thank those that do something nice for us. Cozy sweaters, beautiful leaves, football, and pumpkins everywhere—there are lots of reasons to love fall! The season brings with it so many fun reasons to gather such as fall festivals, bonfires and Thanksgiving celebrations (just to name a few).
Great Hostess Gifts for the Fall Season
These gatherings are a great opportunity to show your appreciation with a meaningful, inspirational hostess gift. To take the guesswork and stress out of finding the perfect gift, I’m sharing a list of ideas that are sure to bless your hostess. I hope you’ll find the perfect gift!
Homemade hostess gifts
Of course, you don’t need to head to the store to find a great hostess gift. If you’re crafty or you love to cook, there are many homemade hostess gifts you can give. Why not try my Flaxseed Soap or give a jar of homemade apple cinnamon jam. Or, why not bring a jar of these delicious savory spiced pecans.
Inexpensive hostess gifts
Spiced Pumpkin, Apple Cinnamon, Chai—it’s spiced tea season! Fill a mug with tea sachets, tie a ribbon around the handle and voila! You could hand it to her as you are leaving and invite her to spend a little quiet time sipping tea before jumping on all the clean-up.
Hostess gift idea for an overnight stay
Hosting can be a lot of work. Why not lighten your hostess’ load by offering to bring dessert? Bake a fall-inspired treat (or pick one up at the store) and present it to her on this beautiful wooden plate or this cute fall plate. Then, right before you leave, place a thank-you card on it. Can you imagine the look on her face when she starts to clean up and realizes you brought more than just dessert?
Luxury hostess gifts for the fall season
These beautiful carafes are so versatile. Fill them with pretty fall flowers, bath salts, coffee beans, a fall soup mix, or individually wrapped chocolates in pretty fall colors—the possibilities are endless!
What is a good gift for a hostess?
Send her a beautiful arrangement of fall flowers the morning before the get-together. That way, she will be able to use them as decoration for the event. Or, if you want to leave a lasting impression of your gratefulness, leave a piece of wall décor behind such as this “Thankful” Wall Art piece or maybe you just know that she would love this “Give Thanks” piece for her front door. Check out this fall décor selection to find the perfect piece for your hostess.
Relaxing hostess gifts for the fall season
An adult coloring book makes a great gift this time of year— the days are getting shorter, the weather is getting colder, and people are spending more time indoors. With Christmas right around the corner, consider giving your hostess the Max Lucado ‘Because of Bethlehem’ book. The Christmas season can be very busy—slowing down with a coloring book that helps her keep her focus on Jesus during this hectic time of year will be a very welcome gift.
Hostess gift etiquette
So, when should you and when should you not bring a hostess gift? If you’ve been invited to a party or to spend time at someone’s home, it’s customary to bring a gift to thank them. This is especially true if it is the first time you’re visiting their home. Now, if it’s someone you visit every weekend, of course, it’s not necessary to bring them a gift. But, you could still bring fresh flowers from your garden or a loaf of bread you baked.
One of the most important things to remember is to be discreet. Not everyone will bring a gift and you don’t want to make anyone feel bad. Simply say something like “Thank you so much for inviting us.” and hand them the gift. They can open it at a later time when the guests have gone home for the evening.
