You’ve got the party dress, a pair of party shoes, a cocktail ring, and even the perfect coat. But before you leave for the slew of soirees you’ll attend in the coming weeks, stock up on a few of these cool holiday hostess gift ideas to bring along with you. We promise you’ll definitely get invited back.

This Voluspa candle in a decadent champagne scent  looks cool, and at $9, costs less than bringing a bottle of the stuff–plus, it lasts long after the guests leave.

Juicy dessert Plates from Target

Forget baking cookies–bring along these fun dessert plates wrapped with a big festive ribbon and you’re set.

sur la table apron

Get her an apron to blend in with her black dress–sophisticated and elegant, it’s a far cry from June Cleaver’s floral one.


Lollia’s delicious-smelling bath salts come in packaging so sweet (with a bow, too), you don’t even have to wrap it.
