Housewarming and Hostess Gift Ideas



ON TARA: DRESS Free People| HAT Brixton | BAG Topshop


Happy Sunday! guys! Today I am excited to share a highly requested gift idea post, hostess and housewarming gifts! I loving finding unique, personal gifts for both types and Nordstrom is always my first spot to search! I have numerous friends buying new homes and the summer soirees are beginning, so I am stocking up on gifts to have on hand!

Dessert Plates

When it comes to gifts, the sweeter the better and in this case it is literal haha. I love gifting a dessert plate with my favorite homemade treat. I always include the recipe taped below the plate too just in case the hostess loves the treat as much as I do! I came across this adorable flamingo plate at Nordstrom and fell in love! This particular plate comes in four prints too! I linked a couple more favorites below.


Candles are NO fail hostess/housewarming gifts. I fell in love with the colorful prints on these candles from nordstrom. The one I ended up choosing, even though I wanted them all personally, was the Coconut Mango. It smells edible and looks beautiful sitting in an entry way or coffee table too. I have so many favorite candles that would make great gifts, so I linked them all below too!

Cheese Board

One of my favorite snacks is cheese and meat, especially on a Friday night with my sisters and mom. I have been searching for the perfect summer cheese board to gift and found it at Nordstrom! I adore the floral print and the quality is incredible for the price point. If you want to add a little personal touch, include a gift card to a local specialty grocery store so the hostess can purchase some gourmet cheeses.

Coffee Cup

Ok, ok, I purchased one of these for myself, it was too cute not to! I love gifting coffee cups with a gift card placed inside. This particular one is from the Anthropolige line available at Nordstrom. I love the floral letters and any girl would love to sip her morning coffee in this cutie!

*I also picked up this adorable water bottle that comes with a coffee/tea diffuser but it unfortunately sold out! I will keep my eye out for a restock for you guys! 

Of course, you will need a fabulous outfit to wear to these summer soirees and house warming parties and this gorgeous summer yellow dress by Free People is a new favorite. The color is stunning and I love the loose effortless silhouette. I grabbed THIS embroidered bag and not only is the price point amazing, it is the perfect summer bag. You can wear it as a cross body or clutch. Olivia has on the cutest ruffle trim dress from Nordstrom and as soon as she put it on, I ordered all three colors.


Don’t forget that Nordstrom also have gift wrapping services! I love purchasing the gift wrapping sets to have on hand when I am ready to bring a gift along to a party!


*Thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring todays post. All opinions are my own.
