Best Gift Guide for the Holiday Host/Hostess, Under $30!

Best Gift Guide for the Holiday Host/Hostess, Under $30!

It’s that time of year! Tis’ the season for holiday parties and get togethers, all of which require some sort of a gift for the host/hostess.

Host/hostess gifts are often times purchased last minute, which is completely understandable during all the holiday madness. But this year, why not plan ahead and purchase something truly special (and useful!) for your favorite party thrower?! We all love to receive wine and champagne, but this year, let’s get a little more creative and impress THEM with your gift giving skills. I know they would appreciate it!

Here are a few of our favorite items from our shop (Foraged Home) that are sure to please your host/hostess, or any of your friends! Better yet, they are all UNDER $30! We’ve put together some of our favorite combos, as well as single products, to fit any budget that you have for your host/hostess gift this year.

holiday hostess gift guide foraged home ceramic soap dish and handcrafted soap

We all need soap, but sometimes we forget how nice it is to actually use GOOD soap. Full of wholesome, organic ingredients (and some exfoliate on top!) treat your host/hostess to the simple luxury of handcrafted soap. The ceramic soap dish is also a perfect addition to their kitchen, laundry room or bathroom…let them decide!


holiday hostess gift guide under $30 for home decor

It’s no secret we love a good hand towel. These beauties are 100% linen and handcrafted in Korea. Simple and timeless design in classic colors, what more could they want?


holiday gift guide for hostess under 30 ceramic grey vase

These ceramic dark grey vases come in two sizes, both under $30. Grab one of these beauties and stop by your closest Trader Joe’s on your way to the party for a small bundle of greenery. Pop the greenery inside the vase and viola! Your host/hostess will not only love it, they will thank you! For under $30, you made them a centerpiece to decorate their party and gifted them a beautiful vase. Win, win!


holiday gift guide under $30 for hostess gifts

We are a huge fan of cheese over here (who isn’t?!), and any host/hostess know that a good charcuterie board goes fast! Arrive in style to your party with this sleek marble slab and a small extra block of your favorite cheese tied to the top with twine (we love an aged 7 year cheddar!). Your host/hostess will appreciate the back up, but let’s be honest if it was me, I would probably just save it all for myself! :)


silver and gold glass ornament for holiday hostess gift

Silver and gold, silver and goooold. We all know the song, so how perfect would these silver and gold ornaments be? Grab one of each size for your hostess, or just one, either way they would be a special addition to their tree this year. For less than $5 for the small, and $10 for the medium, you truly can’t go wrong because of how classic they are. Grab a couple for yourself too!


simple timeless hostess gifts for holiday season under $30

To us, there’s nothing more cozy than candle light during the cold, winter months. Add some cast iron and beeswax to the mix and it gets even better! Our handmade beeswax taper candle set of 2 and iron taper candle holder combo is a classic. Together they can complete any tablescape or mantle for under $30, but can also be given separately.


If none of these items strikes your fancy, we highly suggest you check out our full shop here. So many of our items fall under the $30 price tag and would be perfect gifts for your host or hostess. Thanks for reading and let us know which items you ended up going with!
