Holiday Gift Guide: Hostess Gifts & Teleflora Giveaway

Tis the season for holiday parties, and you don’t want to show up empty handed. I usually go with a bottle of wine or bubbly with an ornament tied to it, but this year I wanted to step it up a notch. Check out lots of great ideas below – and head down to the bottom of this post to enter to win a festive holiday bouquet from Teleflora!

Hostess Gifts


  • Teleflora Celebrations by Radko Starry Ornament BouquetWho doesn’t love a fresh bouquet of flowers, especially around the holidays when your home is nicely decorated for the holidays? This bouquet is a perfect centerpiece, with red roses, carnations, holly and other florals, complete in a limited-edition ceramic Celebrations by Radko keepsake. Once the flowers have reached their prime, you can use it to hold Christmas cookies, flowers or other treats. I love Teleflora because each bouquet is hand-arranged and delivered by a local Teleflora florist.Scroll down to enter to win this bouquet for you or a loved one!{, $52.95}
  • Kohler Chocolates Holiday CaramelsChocolate is another hostess gift that you really can’t go wrong with. These caramels are covered in a creamy chocolate shell and are inspired by the nostalgic winter traditions, tastes and smells of Wisconsin. I love how they come in festive colors and are available in different quantities and price points too. {, $9.99 – $59.99}
  • Landmark Vineyards “For the Holiday Host” Gift SetNot only is this Pinot Noir the perfect red wine to relax with on a cold winter night, but this set truly is perfect for a hostess because it also comes with a gift-ready package of Wonderful Pistachios, which pairs perfectly with Landmark Vineyards’ 2012 Overlook Pinot Noir. This wine is crafted by hand-selecting grapes from the finest pinot noir vineyards in California and pairs beautifully with holiday meals. {}
  • B. Toffee Gift Wrapped CanistersThis toffee is delicious! And it comes in their signature B. toffee canister, nicely wrapped up with crinkle paper and a chocolate brown ribbon, making it easy-to-gift. It comes in both milk and dark chocolate, but if you can’t decide, just get both! {, $19.99}
  • JOCO CupThis is not your everyday travel mug – it’s made from strong borosilicate glass, so it’s both stylish and sturdy. It comes in lots of fun colors and different sizes, is microwave safe and BPA free, and the shape is modeled after standard disposable coffee cup sizes so it’s easy for you or a barista to brew right into it. Gift this with your favorite coffee or tea – or keep it for yourself and use it every day like I have been! {, $24.95 for 12 oz}
  • Sharper Image Kitchen Tablet StandThis is perfect for the hostess that loves to cook – especially if they are like me and get most of their recipes from Pinterest. When you’re in the middle of cooking, you don’t want to be touching your iPad over and over, so use this stand to make it much easier. Just put your tablet into the stand and use the self-standing stylus to navigate the touch screen. {, $49.99}

    The holiday caramels look too pretty to eat, and the flowers are absolutely perfect for a holiday hostess gift. Heck, I’d like those as a festive gift for my own home.

    This is a great idea! I think all of these would make amazing gifts, especially the chocolate caramels and nail polish!

    Such a great roundup of gift ideas. I love the mug, nothing says holidays like a cup of hot chocolate in your favourite mug 🙂

    I would definitely gift this to my mother-in-law. She understands that hubby and I are on a tight budget with me in grad school, and has forbidden me to spend any money on her for Christmas. I’d love to surprise her with a bouquet and not get in trouble! 🙂

    If I won, I would probably keep this for myself. I haven’t had fresh flowers in my house in a long time 🙂
