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 

 

1. 

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)
$39 

2.

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. 

UGG
Ledy Cozy Sock (7 colors)
$25 

3.

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.

Verie
Holland Crew (3 colors)
$78 

4.

The cold season has never been warmer. It's their new grab-and-go. We're obsessed with this knit, understated pattern that's perfectly at home by a roaring fire, wandering an English wintery moor, or window shopping on a busy street. We'll be picking an extra one up for ourselves.

5.

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
$32 

6.

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." 

Verie
Everyday Cotton T-Shirt
$38

7.

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

$9 

For the Eternally Elegant
