Plants and Flowers That Make the Best Hostess Gifts

Posted on November 28, 2020 by Andrea Forsberg

What Is the Best Gift for a Holiday Host/ Hostess?

This is the time of year for social events and family gatherings. Trying to find the appropriate gift to convey your gratitude that you aren’t doing all the cooking and cleaning can be a bit of a challenge. What kind of wine do they like? Do they want a candle that smells like “s’mores roasting on a fire in the woods of Nantucket” or hand towels with beach Santa? Make it easy on yourself this year, and give the perfect gift—flowers. Everyone appreciates the beauty of a fresh bouquet or a plant they can enjoy for years.


Why Choose Plants or Flowers?


Flowers and plants are perfect gifts that can be enjoyed the moment they are received. A gift of fresh flowers in a beautiful vase or a potted plant requires no work on the part of an already frazzled hostess.


A bouquet of seasonal flowers is always a welcomed addition to the holiday décor. Consider a bouquet of something unexpected, like sunflowers, to add a bit of sunshine to your Friendsgiving gathering. These beautiful flowers can help you hold onto that warm end-of-summer feeling for just a bit longer.


A plant is a long-lasting gift that will remind the recipient of the occasion and the giver for years to come. The right plant can add enough color to see you through until spring. All plants improve living spaces by eliminating pollutants in the air. They are also great for stress reduction and are known to boost your mood and enhance your creativity. What a great gift!


Things to Keep in Mind When Choosing Your Plant or Flower


When deciding on a plant or flower as a hostess gift, there are a few things you will want to consider. Does the recipient have any pets? If you don’t know, your best bet is to choose plants that will not be toxic to animals. Also, consider flowers that are not known to cause allergies or play it safe with a house plant. If you can, keep in mind the home’s décor or purchase a seasonal arrangement if it’s a holiday celebration.
