From Animal-Adorned Cocktail Accents to Minimalist Nordic Cookbooks

By: Rebecca Byers - Dec 22, 2015
When thinking of ideas for hostess gifts, there are lots of options that venture from the conventional bottle of wine. Niche cookbooks, artisan cocktail syrups and thoughtful glassware all make for excellent alternative hostess gift options.

A set of classic copper mint julep cups are a timeless addition to any bar ware collection and is a particularly great option for bourbon lovers. Another creative gift option for bourbon fans is a globe-shaped spirits decanter from Bourbon and Boots.

If you are looking to give a hostess gift that doesn't relate to alcohol, a vegetable-shaped herb infuser, an artistic pair of salt and pepper shakers or a set of wooden birthday candles also make fun and unique options.
