Hosting parties is a lot of work, so we always like to bring a token of our appreciation for whoever is throwing the party in question — and what better place to start than with the best Costco hostess gifts? Hey, someone else hosting means that not only do we not have to cook but that we also don’t have to deal with the dreaded post-party cleanup. So, the least we can do is bring a nice bottle of wine or some decadent chocolates to help the party thrower relax after it’s all said and done.
We like to bring edible gifts and cute gifts that can be used in the home or while entertaining. Cookies, chocolates, nuts, and serving ware all fit the bill. We also like things that are packaged in a gift box or tin so that the hostess doesn’t feel obligated to share with the party guests — something that can happen if you simply bring a bottle of wine to the party. But if that’s the vibe of the gathering feel free to let the vino flow. Perhaps just bring an extra bottle for the host to hide away for later. And if you don’t have a Costco membership yet, the holiday season is the perfect time to get one — you can get yours here.
If you don’t already have a go-to hostess gift you like to bring to parties, take a look at the selection below — you just might find a favorite (or a few) that you’ll want to keep for yourself to help you wind down during the holiday chaos. Ahead, check out the best Costco hostess gifts that are guaranteed to delight.
