28 Easy DIY Hostess Gifts
Can you believe that Christmas is just 7 short weeks away? We all know that the next two months are going to fly by at lightning speed. Jenn and I strive to be as organized as possible to ensure that our holidays are meaningful, fun and carefree. Especially this year with the impending arrival of Baby Bee. You can start making some of our 28 easy DIY hostess gifts now for your next party invitation. They are all suitable for Thanksgiving and December holidays. Just click the link or the photo for details.
This year, holiday parties and gatherings will look a lot different than years past. There has been talk of outdoor party events (weather permitting), a socially-distanced wine tasting, Christmas Scavenger Hunt or Secret Santa.
For us, showing up to a party empty-handed is never an option. We want our hosts to know how much we appreciate the party and the trouble that they have gone through. Typically our hostess gifts are handmade and include a special note. In an effort to make your holiday season as carefree as possible we gathered together 28 ideas for easy DIY holiday hostess gifts.
To Make A Bottle of Wine Even More Special
At the top of our list is taking a bottle of wine to our party hosts. During the holiday season we put a little bit more effort into our gift presentation. Here are 3 easy DIY ideas to add more pizazz to your wine presentation.
Sweater Wine Bag
This is the perfect DIY project for using old sweaters. If you have any sweaters that are stained or streched out, think about repurposing them as a Sweater Wine Bag. We added tags and greenery to make the bag more festive. If you are presenting this at Thanksgiving, think about adding a leaf or feather.
Wine Bottle Stopper
Describing this project as “simple” is a giant understatement. We promise…you can easily do this wine bottle stopper!
Wine Bottle Charms
This is a great project because you can make the wine bottle charm to personally fit your hosts personality. These charms come in a variety of colors and categories…sports, hobbies, etc.
Here are several ideas for wine bottle charms.
Handmade Christmas Ornaments
This is another of our favorite easy DIY hostess gifts. Ornaments are a great way to commemorate the party or occasion. Think about adding a special tag with the party date included.

DIY Bottlebrush Christmas Tree Snow Globe Ornament
Easy DIY Embroidery Hoop Christmas Ornament
Stacked Wood Slice Christmas Tree Ornament

Better Not Pout Ornament
This ornament was created well before we ever thought about blogging. This was made from a scrap piece of wood, paint and stamp lettering.
Clay Tags for Gifts, Ornaments or Place Cards
These tags were made by hand with air dry clay.
Tags Made with Cornstarch and Baking Soda
We used cookie cutters to make these shaped tags. They can be cut in the shape of your choosing.
Everybody Loves Candlelight
And everyone looks beautiful in candlelight 🙂 We personally burn candles year-round. By making your own candles you can create the fragrance of your choice. Candles are another super simple and easy DIY gift idea.
Easy DIY Essential Orange Oil Candles
Spice Candle in a Copper Mug
Fortunately we found these copper mugs for a fabulous price. You can use any liquid-tight, heat compatible vessel for the hot liquid wax.
DIY Candle in a Vintage China Teacup
For Jenn’s wedding shower we collected vintage china teacups from thrift stores. They can typically be found for about $1.00 each – even less if you are lucky.
Gifts for Pampering
Who doesn’t love to be pampered? Our hostess has worked hard to throw a great party. She will appreciate this gift to use after the party is over.
Coconut Orange Sugar Scrub
We make this scrub every Fall. It is so fragrant and feels fabulous on dry skin. Your hostess will thank you 🙂
Warm and Cozy Heating Pads with Rice and Lavender
These sachets smell fabulous. We especially like tucking them into drawers and closets – especially the linen closet.
Gifts for the Nature Lover
The birds will thank you as the winter months approach and their food source becomes more scarce.
Etched Water Bottles for Plants
You can use any theme or words for these etched bottles.
Who Doesn’t Love Edible Treats?
Your hostess will appreciate these. They can be served the night of the party or saved to be eaten later.
DIY Christmas Cookie Bag for Friends and Neighbors
These peppery peanuts can be made weeks in advance and stored in Mason jars. You choose the size of the jars – big or small.
Ranch Flavored Oyster Crackers
The ranch oyster crackers can also be made in advance and stored in air-tight containers.
