Gift Guide: 25 Hostess Gifts

It’s time to kick off the holiday buying season with gift guides. I’ve put together rather a lot of them, which I hope will be helpful. The hyperlinked price will take you to the site where you can buy it. If you get sick of so many guides, let me know and I’ll cut back. Happy shopping!

Here are 25 hostess gifts, all under $50. I’ve split them into three categories: Glam Hostess Gifts, Rugged Hostess Gifts, and Preppy Hostess Gifts. You may be tempted to make a little purchase for yourself, or stock a few extra for any last minute invitations.

Get the Look: Crystal Ball Chandeliers

Following up on yesterday’s Montage: 20 Rooms with Crystal Ball Chandeliers, and simultaneously pushing my own living room light fixture quest forward, I scrounged around for crystal ball chandeliers and floral sputnik styles. While these all aren’t exactly uniform in style, I resisted the urge to include other types of globe-shaped pendants, like the pierced Oly pieces, or spikey corals, or capiz shell creations, or globules of hand blown glass, in the effort to (mostly) approximate a globe shape in crystal (or at least crystal detail).

The vintage Italian versions from 1st dibs (#11 and #21) are what I’d love to hang. #1, which is a contemporary version, is great looking too, though minus the patina. I discovered that Juliska makes light fixtures (who knew?) and I’m kinda smitten with the Serena & Lily (#5) in concept, though it skews too Moroccan for my own home. Check out #8; it’s quite beautiful, and interesting (and I wouldn’t have expected to find it at a department store). #7 is a popular pendant that gets the look across without being frouffy, and #15 is a bit more feminine, petite, and very inexpensive. Anyway, enough of my musing, have a look yourself and let me know your thoughts.
