18 Gifts For That Annoyingly Perfect Hostess
We all have that one person in our life, they’re seemingly perfect, have their lives together, never a coffee stain on their ironed shirt, a house as sparkling and lively as their personalities. We hate to say it - but they’re annoyingly perfect and our constant inspiration - and they’re hosting this year. Their Thanksgiving get-together is one you want to show up for. Maybe you have absolutely zero idea what to get a hostess, maybe you forgot to bring a gift last year, or maybe it’s your first in-person Thanksgiving in a while and you miss shopping for others! Whatever the reason, whatever the event, we have the guide for picking that perfect gift for the glamorous (possibly to an annoying extent) hostess in your life:
For the Comfy Cozy Vibes
Chilly winter nights no more. You simply can't strike out with a throw blanket. If you have intel on your hostess's living room or cozy reading corner theme - you've got six colors to choose from courtesy of Crate & Barrel.
Crate & Barrel
Tepi 70"x 55" Grey Throw Blanket (6 colors)
You've never met a cozier sock. Plus, black goes with anything, so they can secretly wear these fluffy accessories under a long dress and boots, or tucked into jeans while out for an autumn meet cute. It's an easy choice for the always cold and the forever stylish.
Ledy Cozy Sock (7 colors)
It's what's known as 'lounge-business'; i.e., wearing a comfortable crew-neck with dress pants or a skirt and blazer and getting things done. Or maybe they're working from home. Either way, they've got an easy outfit.
Holland Crew (3 colors)
So they never run out of caffeine - what kind of friend/guest would you be if you let that happen? Regardless of relationship with the hostess, you will hit the jackpot by giving the gift of abundant caffeine this holiday season.
¡Tierra! Organic Ground Coffee 3 Pack
An everyday partner-in-crime. Say you don't know their personal style but aren't the type of gift giver to show up with another candle. In three winter-y colors, this unbelievably comfortable shirt pairs well with a "you'll thank me later."
Everyday Cotton T-Shirt
An author in waiting. Cooler weather means they'll be craving cafe ambience and pondering book ideas while the weather rages outside. If they don't have a leather journal obsession, they're about to.
Barnes & Noble
Recycled Black Leather Journal
For the Eternally Elegant
Move over, Diamonds. Pearls ain't just for your grandma anymore. With three available accents to join these freshwater pearls together, you can choose this classy yet colorful gift if you're really looking to make an impression.

Is this a classy affair? Or maybe you just want to make it one? Here's one of our favorite new perfumes that isn't overpowering and universally loved.

For when the party's over. Literally everyone can use these when the guests have gone home and the makeup comes off. They're environmentally friendly and come in a handy travel pouch.
Reusable Cotton Bamboo Makeup Rounds
Every day is self care Sunday. Encourage some R&R while gifting a consistently good skincare brand at a reasonable price.
Not your average cleanser. This pairs well with the Bamboo Makeup Rounds as a perfect self-care Sunday kit for your favorite hostess.
The Cleansing Foam
For the Dinner Party Dame
After the last bottle of wine is uncorked, it's time to spill the tea. If your hostess is as annoyingly perfect as you claim them to be, they'll go crazy for a matching set - as we all do.
Classic Cream & Sugar Set
There's always wine ready - is that not the mark of a perfect event? This cooler doubles as a vase for those non-party weekends.
Crate & Barrel
Hayes Black Marble Wine Cooler
