17 Best Hostess Gifts Under $50

By Jenn Rose Smith

We’re always looking for really good hostess gifts to keep on hand during the holidays. You never know when you’ll get the impromptu invite to the in-laws or the boss’s home, and mom taught us better than to show up empty-handed. That said, the most elegant hostess gifts don’t have to be the most expensive ones. We’ve found plenty of useful, well-designed objects that make for thoughtful hostess gifts under $50. The good news is that those you don’t give away you can store for future birthday parties — or even better yet, keep them for yourself.
