5 Genius Gifts for the Host(ess) Who Has It All
We all know and love one—the host or hostess with the mostest, who year after year outdoes themselves throwing the best holiday bash you’ve ever been to. What you don’t love is deciding on the perfect holiday gift for them. The last thing they need is another serving platter, kitschy decoration or personalized ornament.
So, to find something as special as they are, we sought the advice of Veronica Bay, the General Manager of Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams at King of Prussia and gift giver extraordinaire to share the most thoughtful items, they’re bound to love.
Here are her top ideas, guaranteed to make you the favorite gift giver of the season.
Sleek Barware Set
Fix your favorite mixologist a festive and functional present by gifting a mix-and-match barware set. “Grab a pair of the Mid-century-inspired Bacall Old Fashioned Glasses and pair them with the Hammered Cocktail Shaker for a truly unique gift,” says Bay. The modern design and metallic accents are classic and complement each other without being too matchy-matchy. Looking for something even more out-of-the-ordinary? “The Party Basin is another great gift that’s both stylish and useful.”
Chic Coffee Table Book
“Coffee tables books based around a person’s tastes are bound to impress,” says Bay. “Whether they’re a fashion aficionado, or enjoy iconic photography, we have something for everyone.” Her favorite this holiday season? “The Dior book is stunning!”
Cozy and Colorful Pillows & Throws
After a long day of cleaning, cooking and catching up with guests, give them something they can unwind by the fire with—cozy pillows and throws. “I really love the multi-velvet stripe pillows and wool sheepskin throw in Caspian,” says Bay. “They add comfort to a space without skimping on style.” The lush jewel tones and textiles add a wow-factor without overwhelming the room’s existing décor.
Offer them a gift they can share with guests—like artwork. The iconic Black Sheep sculpture is an unforgettable conversation piece they’re bound to be wowed by. “This is by far the most unique item in our collection,” says Bay. “It’s destined to make a statement in any home.”
A beautiful frame is simple yet meaningful choice. “Frames are always a solid go-to,” says Bay. “They preserve memories of happy times together—what’s better than that?” Bonus points if you include a heartfelt photo or note.
