Show up with pretty bowls, dazzling drink accessories, or a flawless snack assortment, and you’ll be everyone’s favorite guest. We found 10 small hostess gifts guaranteed to go over big.


She won’t have to go pro to turn a grocery story bouquet into an expert arrangement when you gift her a flower-arranging gift set with garden trug, floral scissors, and how-to book. Available at Shed, $115.


Michael Michaud’s delicate herb napkin rings make linens the star of the table. Available at Best American Arts, $54.


More than just a pretty piece, this Indego Africa ivory and ebony bowl is carved and woven by female artisans of the Abaharanira-majyambere Cooperative. Available at Mae Ree, $85.


For she who pairs good food with pretty plating: Athena Calderone‘s mouthwatering debut cookbook. Available at Amazon, $20.


Think of a white and gold serving utensil as jewelry for a pie or salad. Available at ABC Carpet & Home, $40-$45.


The best gifts are functional and beautiful, like this gray glass mixing bowl set. Available at Food52, $65.


With cheese, chocolate, salami, jam, and more, the American All-Stars gift box is a delightful nosh by way of Boulder, Colorado. Just add wine. Available at Cured, $88.


The hostess with a seriously playful streak will appreciate the whimsy of a pair of brass pineapple shot glasses. Available at Haven’s Kitchen, $38.


She’ll go bananas for Rae Dunn’s fruit plates. Available at In the Farm Kitchen Shop, $44.


Like a badass jacket for a casserole, a suede pot holder probably isn’t something he’d buy for himself — but it’s definitely something he’ll love. Available at March SF, $35.
