Awesome Gifts for Any Hostess

I may not be qualified to do this, but I’m going for it anyway. I declare today, April 3rd, to be International Hostess Appreciation Day. I mean, there are days for cows and grilled cheese sandwiches (which is coming up, by the way), so why not celebrate the people who bend over backwards to ensure we have a good time at their parties? And what better way to show our checklist-loving and detail-oriented friends that we appreciate them than to bring a fabulous gift with us to their next get together? Below are some fun and quirky gift ideas that are sure to satisfy even the pickiest of hostesses.

Asmadi Games’ “We Didn’t Playtest This at All” | $9.63 |

By now, we’ve all heard of Cards Against Humanity. Now, you can bring the same level of chaos to the party with this fun and simple board game from Asmadi Games. Oh, and when you’ve played this one out too, you can rest assured knowing that  they’ve made a game as well. Hello, hours of fun.


Southern Belle Candle Co.’s ”Mint Julep,” “Georgia Peach” and “Pecan Pie” candles. | $22.00 | Buy

No hostess can deny herself a good candle, even if she tries. These fragrant candles are made with pure soybean wax and their gorgeous design and aromas will set the perfect ambiance for any gathering. Did I mention our readers receive 20 percent off with the code LEMON20?



ModCloth’s “Frozen Fruits” apron  | $34.99 | Buy

Cooking for others can be nerve-racking! Give your hostess a nod of approval with this retro-inspired apron found on ModCloth. It makes for the perfect gift for any girl who loves herself a good recipe.


Lonely Planet’s The Big Trip | $19.99 | Buy

For ladies with a serious case of wanderlust, this is the way to go. Full of endless ideas for overseas adventures, The Big Trip is a traveler’s guide to trip planning. Of course, it’s far too large to take traveling, so it can double as an awesome coffee table book.


Out of Print’s “Marks the Plot” coaster set | $24.99 | Buy

“Marks the Plot” is not your ordinary set of coasters. Buying a set of these will not only keep the water stains off of the table, but also it’ll help a great cause! With each set that is purchased, a book is donated to a community in need—a win-win situation.
