10 Little Hostess Gifts (for $25 or Less) to Bring to Easter
Easter isn’t a big gift-giving holiday (especially if you don’t have kids), but that doesn’t mean you’re totally off the hook. Sorry to be the bearers of bad news! By no means should you should show up empty-handed to the house of your third cousin. (Even if she’s technically twice removed!)
It’s good form to bring your host a token of your appreciation for putting in the effort and providing the digs for your celebration. It doesn’t have to be a huge gesture you’ve been planning for months, but something a little more thoughtful than a re-gifted bottle of wine or a bouquet of flowers will do the trick. Here are a few of our favorite picks of the season — for $25 or less!
1. Hearth and Hand Green Milk Glass Platter, $20 at Target
This faux jadeite platter from Joanna Gaines’ Target collection is vintage-inspired and effortlessly springy.
2. Floral Gardening Gloves, $25 at Williams Sonoma
No matter what the weather may feel like outside or what the calendar says, Easter officially signals the start of spring. Go all in on the theme and give your host these festive cotton gardening gloves. Spring has sprung!
3. Wooden Ring Dish, $18 at Etsy
This little hardwood trinket is both pretty and practical, offering a sweet spot to rest jewelry next to the sink so they don’t get all sudsy. The best thing to pair with this handmade spiraled dish? An offer to help wash the dishes.
4. Ceramic Succulent Planter Pots, $14 for four
Lots of people bring plants to their Easter celebration, but plants in adorable egg-shaped ceramic pots with tiny draining holes are even nicer. The quad comes with a removable saucer, which catches whatever water the succulents don’t suck up. (Note: Succulents not included. We think these would look cute with kitchen herb seedlings too!)
5. Peach Embossed Pie Plate, $19 at Wayfair
If you’re bringing dessert to your Easter celebration, consider making a pie so that you can gift your host with this pretty pastel pie dish.
6. Geometric Wooden Bottle Stopper, $22 each at Etsy
A bottle of wine is a go-to hostess gift, but take it up a notch with these custom-made reusable wooden bottle stoppers. The geometric designs are carved out of maple wood and are perfect for re-corking any bottles that didn’t get finished during Easter dinner.
7. Rosado Pot, from $8 at Anthropologie
Can’t stop, won’t stop with the egg-shaped plant vessels! These stoneware planters come in three sizes, so might we suggest picking the one that will fit your friend’s favorite flower?
8. Dipped Acacia Wood Salad Set, $10 at Target
Any host serving a crowd would appreciate an extra set of serving spoons. This salad tong set from Chrissy Teigen’s Cravings collection is stunning, to boot.
9. George & Viv Easter Gift Soap, $10 at Anthropologie
Fancy soap is always a good idea, but this bar is the BEST idea. Complete with bunny butts and a cute saying about the best part of the day’s festivities (chocolate), it’ll definitely have your host smiling.
10. Harney & Son’s Cherry Blossom Tea Sachets, $8 for 20 at World Market
Help your host unwind from a hectic day of entertaining with a soothing cup of tea inspired by the springtime blooms. Bonus points for this stunning canister, which is pretty enough to leave out on the countertop.
