Halloween parties are coming up just around the corner and I don’t want you arriving empty-handed. I’m a big believer in always coming to someone’s home with something in hand.
It can even be as simple as a bottle of wine. But with a festive holiday like Halloween, why not lean into the spooky factor and bring something that represents the season and the holiday?
Halloween Hostess Gift Ideas
When heading to an upcoming Halloween party this month, be sure to think of one of these fun gifts to give. They’re unique, and perfect for the season, and any host would be happy to receive them!
They’re all a fun and easy twist on great hostess gifts but with a nod to the holiday. Celebrating Halloween doesn’t have to be just for the kids with trick or treating and silly costumes.
So if you get invited to a sophisticated, or even a laid back get together of chili and handing out candy, here’s what to bring to the Halloween party hostess!
Halloween Gingerbread House
When I saw this I thought it was SO adorable. What a fun gift to give to a family when you come over. Gingerbread houses are a fun tradition, but doing one for Halloween is ideal for those who love the spooky holiday!
Festive Wine Bottles
I thought this wine bottle from World Market was too adorable not to share. The vampire cape makes it feel very on brand for the holiday. You can also just scoop up any of your favorite wine bottles that have a spooky label. There’s definitely a wide variety out there!
Candy Corn Blondies
Who doesn’t love a delicious dessert as a hostess gift? Candy corn blondies are a fun take on this delicious dessert. Either make them yourself or pick up this batch at Williams-Sonoma
Spooky Candy Dish
How adorable is this fun candy dish? It’s such a fun little piece to add to someone’s home. Bring over your favorite gourmet candy to add to it as a special treat!
Spooky Halloween Candy Apples
My family gets these every year for Christmas and they are INSANELY good. The Halloween version are adorable. If you’re bringing them as a gif, they’re really easy to cut up and display for dessert. I love bringing over a dessert as a hostess gift idea so this one fits the bill!
A Pumpkin Inspired Serving Piece
Bringing over either your dessert on one of these or just as a gift alone, these make for a great gift for the season. They can also be used going into Thanksgiving which makes them something useful the hostess can use in the future.
Seasonal Treats & Beverages
I was at Trader Joe’s the other day and they had TONS of great seasonal treats and beverages to choose from. From pre-made items, to box mixes and so on. I picked up this pumpkin spice ginger beer which is great for mixing cocktails with. Add a nice napkin to the bottle and you’ve got a simple and easy gift that guests can enjoy right then and there.
Who doesn’t love a great candle come fall? Anything that smells like fall from cinnamon, pumpkin spice, or frasier fir come Christmas, I am here for it! This gorgeous candle is the perfect hostess gift that can be enjoyed all season long.
