100 Gifts for the Hostess

From Magnetic Bottle Openers to Comically Candid Coasters

— December 18, 2014 — Lifestyle
Buying a gift for the hostess in your life is a little like giving back; a big "Thank You" for hosting every dinner party, birthday celebration and get-together in her apartment (which has pretty much become your second home).

Of course, the hostess loves to entertain, and she's good at it. So why not help her out by getting her a gift she can put to good use? There are a ton of inventive products that are perfect for putting together a function, from hand-etched barware to Parisian dessert toppers, cocktail pop-up menus and silly smile coasters.

And, if she gets excited enough about her gift, perhaps she'll decide to throw a spontaneous party -- of which you'll be the guest of honor! Everybody wins.
