28 Gifts for Party Hosts

From Cord-Free Portable Speakers to Undead Serving Bowls

— November 5, 2013 — Art & Design
As the holidays get closer, chances are your schedule is starting to book up with parties and events to attend, and as proper etiquette, it's important to bring gifts for party hosts as a thanks for throwing an amazing party.

If you have a friend who's known for hosting events where the alcohol keeps flowing to keep everyone happy, getting them a set of shot glasses for guests to use will definitely come in handy. Likewise, to create a quirky and fun atmosphere, setting up string lights that resemble margarita party glasses will definitely keep with the theme.

For your friends who love music, getting them portable speakers they can use in any room will ensure there's never any awkward silences. Finally, for the intimate get-togethers with close friends, getting the host a set of coasters will benefit them throughout the year.
