Hostess Gifts for the Holidays ($25 and Under!)

Some of the links below are affiliate links-thank you for supporting Southern & Style by using these links at no additional charge to you!
Can I just say I personally am looking very forward to all of the eating that is upon us in the next few weeks?
I know, I know 'tis the season to be thankful and to be giving-but while we're being thankful and giving...we also need to eat, am I right?
This is a post dedicated to giving back to those who we visit and call upon, all holiday season long; this applies to any family and friends you're going to be celebrating Thanksgiving with, as well as the many engagements and parties you might be attending during the Christmas season.

Growing up Southern (& really, anyone with good manners at all), you learn that you never go to someone's home empty-handed.
And while you certainly never have to spend a lot of money, it's always nice to leave them with a token of your appreciation.
I've included a bevy of gifts under the $25 mark, so you can make sure there's room in your budget for everyone you visit.
But if you don't have a hostess gift budget this holiday season, remember that homemade breads and desserts, bottles of wine, or even a handwritten note are plenty of thanks enough!

This beautiful cheeseboard can be personalized with a monogram, a family name, or simply left plain in it's pure, beautiful form.
These are perfect for tossing keys in, spare change, or as a ring dish.
For the fun-loving friend or family member in your life, this deck of cards will have the entire party entertained!
This is the perfect gift for those that love to be cozy-it comes with the strap to keep it contained for picnics or outdoor concerts as well.
There's something about a handmade mug that just warms your heart, you could include your favorite hot coco mix or some homemade marshmallows with this mug as well-if you're feeling extra generous.
For the Southerner in your life, this coffee table book is not only beautiful to display, but also includes many recipes, stories, and beautiful photographs.
This brand has so many cheeky tea towels at a great price point!
They're perfect for anyone in your life, just choose the saying to complete them (there are seasonal options as well)
For those building their bar-carts, this is the perfect gift to make sure bottles are popped all night long. The price is right on this one as well, so you still have room in the budget to attach it to a 6-pack of their favorite craft beer.
These dainty napkins come in under $20 for a pack of four & you can even take them to be embroidered for a special touch.
I love the look of this clutch almost as much as I love the price of it.
These are available in many states and come in under $10 making them a steal.
Pair with a bottle of your favorite wine and they make a complete gift that's easier than almost anything else on this list.
These candles are both amazing scents & I love the beautiful tins they come in-they're great for reusing for change or jewelry dishes.
This is also the time of year to stock up on these candles at this price because they make excellent gifts for birthdays, wedding showers, get-well gifts, teacher presents, housewarmings and more!

I hope this gift guide came at a good time for y'all, so y'all can purchase gifts for all holiday occasions!

Until next time. . .
