4 Must have Hostess and Neighbor Gifts to Have On Hand

This post about great hostess and neighbor gifts to have on hand was made possible through Hallmark. All opinions expressed are 100% my own. 

There is nothing worse than getting a last minute invite and not having anything to bring as a hostess gift. Better yet, a neighbor stops by with a Christmas gift and you just smile and thank them. I have a little closet of Hostess and Neighbor Gifts I keep just for these situations.

With the upcoming hustle and bustle of the holidays,  it is great to have a reserve of items to hand out or maybe you just want a little break and can indulge in some of the Hallmark Crafters & Co. collection. This line available at Hallmark features teas, soaps, candles, confections and more – perfect to have pre wrapped in a closet or to indulge a little on your own. 

4 Must Have Hostess and Neighbor Gifts to Have On Hand

You can never go wrong with new soap. Especially ones that have an amazing scent and are beautiful to look at. No gift packaging needed on these beauties.

Candles are great gifts all year round. I love how soy based candles burn. This large Ecalptyus Spa Candle will last for a long time and the scent is not overpowering. Put this candle in a cello bag or a simple paper satchel for a great last minute hostess gift. 

Here are a few teas I have wrapped in simple tissue and cello bag ready to go for a non holiday occasion.
