5 NYC Inspired Hostess Gifts + Giveaway
This contest has officially ended. A huge New York thank you to all who participated, and congrats to our winner, A.V.! Stay tuned for more exciting UsedYorkCity.com giveaways!
With the fast approaching holiday season comes a slew of dinners and parties. Be prepared on the fly with our guide to 5 NYC inspired hostess gifts. Bonus: They won’t set you back more than $25 a pop.
1. Bodega Flowers
Quick, easy, and seasonal, a beautiful bushel can be picked up at your corner bodega for $10.00 or less. You’ll quickly get bumped up from dinner guest to VIP.
2. NYC Map Playing Cards
Who doesn’t love a great game of poker after a few bottles of wine? Don’t make your hostess go scrambling in the junk drawer for cards, delight her with a new set that pays homage to the city she loves so much. We’re fans of this set by Muji ($12.50), which can be placed together just so to create a map of the Big Apple.
3. The Morning-After Breakfast
The last thing your hostess wants to be thinking about after entertaining a room full of New Yorkers for the evening is the next morning. Make her smile by stopping by your favorite bakery and picking up an assortment of croissants, scones, and muffins to help her recover from the festivities.
4. The Home T
A dinner party hostess no doubt takes great pride in her home, and sharing it with others. Celebrate this pride by gifting her a NY Home T-shirt ($25.00). Read on to find out how you can get your’s for FREE!
What better way to tell your hostess thank you than by giving her a roundtrip Metrocard ($4.50) with a note attached saying, “Next time, dinner is on me.”
