1. Exceptional Candles

Candles are always a safe bet, but why settle for ordinary ones? DW candles come in a variety of unique fragrances, from mashed mac and cheese to beach-themed coffee bean. They even have scents like leather and barbershop. With so many distinctive options, you're sure to find something that suits every taste. Personalize your gift by choosing a fragrance that resonates with your host.

2. Personalized Items

A personal touch can make your gift even more special. Consider monogrammed items, like cocktail napkins. These can be conservative and elegant or playful and fun, depending on your host's style. Monogramming items like napkins, cocktail napkins, or even personalized picks can be a delightful surprise for the recipient.

3. Decorator's Delight

With the holiday season in full swing, many households are busy decorating their homes. I suggest creating a gift basket that includes a bottle of bubbly for the adults and a bottle of cider for the kids. Complement these beverages with classic holiday movies, but consider going beyond the usual suspects. Think of movies like "Christmas in Connecticut" and "Holiday Inn" for a refreshing change. For a touch of nostalgia, you can even include timeless classics from vintage TV shows.

4. Edible and Decorative Treats

Instead of traditional box candies, why not bring something both edible and decorative? I recommend a solid chocolate turkey. This unique gift is not only a delightful decorative piece but also a delicious treat. Once the holidays are over, you can break the chocolate turkey with a mallet or hammer and use it in various recipes, like chocolate chip cookies, pancakes, muffins, and more. It's a gift that keeps on giving.


When visiting friends and family during the holiday season, don't forget to express your gratitude to your hosts with a thoughtful gift. Unique and creative gifts like fragrant candles, personalized items, decorative holiday baskets, and edible treats can make your gesture extra special. Consider your host's preferences and choose a gift that reflects their personality and style. With these ideas in mind, you'll surely spread holiday cheer and warmth to your loved ones this season.
