How to choose the best gift for your party host

by Daniel Leeder 10/12/2023

Whether you’re going to a formal dinner party or a casual backyard BBQ, it’s a good idea to bring a gift for the host. While not required, a gift shows the host your appreciation for their time and energy. However, it’s not always so easy to know what to bring.

Here are some quick tips for party host gift ideas:

Thoughtful gift ideas

Even with these tried-and-true gift options, it’s crucial to consider whether they are the right choice for your particular party host. For example, if you know the hosts have pets or young children, flowers can be more of a hazard than you intend. When gifting candy or cookies, note any dietary limitations or allergens you might not be aware of. A thoughtful gift goes a long way, regardless of the price tag.

Classic gift ideas

Dinner parties come in all forms, but your host will appreciate an appropriate gift. Some classic gift ideas include flower bouquets and boxes of candy or cookies. If you bring a gift of food or drink, make sure it’s packaged to last - unless it’s a potluck party, don’t expect the gift to be served right then and there.

Holiday party gifts

For holiday parties, it helps to stay with the overall theme of the holiday season. Seasonal treats and beverages are good options, as are small holiday-related trinkets or decor. Some other ideas include decorative and useful items like coasters, tea towels and serving platters.

House-warming party gifts

House-warming parties provide an opportunity to indulge your inner interior designer. For example, consider decorative dishes or bath towels, artisan candles, coffee table books or even a small piece of modern art. Other great gift ideas for house-warming include more practical items for the host’s home, such as gardening tools or kitchen accessories.

Choosing the right gift might seem like a difficult task, but it doesn’t have to be. Keep these tips and ideas in mind the next time you’re searching for the perfect gift to bring to a party.
