We're in the midst of the holiday season, and we're guessing that you are also seeing your schedules fill up with a variety of seasonal engagements. From a friend's dinner party to a night of holiday crafting, we love the extra time we get to spend with our nearest and dearest. The one rule we always follow when it comes to attending a soiree is never showing up empty handed. While we love baking an extra dessert or bringing along a bottle of wine, sometimes the hostess that goes above and beyond deserves something even more special. Here are a few of the hostess gifts we'll be toting this season! 

For the hostess that goes above and beyond in her meal preparations, we adore this cookbook holder. Simply choose a old favorite or new recipe, place your cookbook on the holder, and easily prepare your dish! From a sweet holiday treat to a savory batch of garlic mashed potatoes or roasted chicken, your hostess will be able to whip anything up with ease! 

The hostess with an appreciation for antiques and all things vintage will beam when opening a box containing Letters of Note. The book contains a collection of over 125 letters from noteable figures from history including Emily Dickinson and Albert Einstein. In addition, the book is filled with gorgeous portraits, artwork, and will have any vintage-lover swooning. 

Many places are covered in a blanket of snow, but your hostess can still add a floral touch to her space with a gorgeous Rifle Paper Co. botanical print. Hand painted in stunning color, we love this print for adding a pop of color to any nook or desktop, and it's the perfect way to brighten up a winter day. 

A sweet scalloped stand is perfect and versatile way to add a special touch to any room! The fashion-loving hostess can easily use it to display her most treasured pieces of jewelry while the hostess with an undeniably rustic aesthetic can use it to host a myriad of candles. Our favorite use? We love this stand as a way to show off a tasty collection of hors d'oeuvres or display a perfectly frosted cake. 

If the hostess your celebrating with is well versed in travel and loves to spend a weekend jetsetting to somewhere new, a collection of travel-inspired coasters by Rifle Paper Co. are certain to impress! This collection of coasters featuring exotic and metropolitan destinations is not only a thoughtful present, but is something that guests can enjoy as well as they sip on a seasonal cocktail or glass of eggnog! 

May your parties be both merry and bright this season! For more gift ideas, stop by our gift guide to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list.
