The best hostess gifts for  $5, $10, $15 and $20 with Pier 1 #Pier1_partner #Pier1Love

This post was sponsored by Pier 1. All gifting genius is my own.

It's party season! The invites are rolling in and you need gifts - and not just standard, boring gifts, but fun, unique and preferably not crazy pricey gifts for everyone from the preschool room mom to the hostess of your fave annual Christmas Cocktail Party. No time to stress over the details? Don't worry, I've partnered with Pier 1 Imports to source the best hostess gifts under $20 (and two are under $10). Stock up on a few and you'll be set for the entire season!

Under $5

It sounds simple, but you just can't go wrong with a festive dish towel. Wrap it up with a bright ribbon and, if you're super Pinterest-y, a sprig of fresh rosemary, and you're set to mingle. If you want to up your gift giving game, take the dishtowel and wrap it around a bottle of wine, tie it with a bow and prepare to be the most popular guest at the get-together. I like to stock up on a few bottles of inexpensive red wine to have on hand for this very purpose (or for when my kids are climbing the curtains during winter break).

How cute is this cherry red mini baking dish? It is truly a tiny version of the classic stoneware Dutch Oven and would be perfect for your friend, the domestic goddess. She'll use it to serve candied lemons in her cheese board, hold marshmallows for hot chocolate station or to warm a small brie. I myself would use it as decor but I totally have a friend in mind who will put this tiny beauty to good use (and will let me crash her party when she does!).

Under $15

File this under "Best Invention Ever" and also, "the perfect gift for the hostess of my Mom's Group holiday play date". A stainless steel wine chiller that ensures you never have a warm glass of white wine and also promises to make you popular among friends who don't have the kind of time it requires to chill wine is probably the best kind of gift you can give.

I love this marble coaster set for an office gift swap or as a gift for a co-worker because it truly looks (and feels) so much more pricey than it is. It also happens to have a masculine touch and would look just as gorgeous holding a pint glass as a wine glass.

Another under $20 (well, almost!) gift idea is to pair two hammered copper bar utensils together - no need to wrap, just tie with a ribbon, add a sweet note on a gift tag and hand off to your host or hostess as you walk in the door. The hammered bronze will go with any bar set and would be a stand out on a bar cart. I particularly love the ice scoop because I rarely see them on bar set up, so I know they'll be one of a kind!

And, if you're in need of a white elephant gift or just a little something with a touch of sparkle, I've got that covered, too! Who wouldn't love a wine bottle decked out in a sequin and faux fur Santa suit??

Many thanks to Pier 1 for making this possible!
