One of my favorite host/hostess gifts is a fresh centerpiece. This year, I put together beautiful centerpieces using fresh, vibrant red poinsettias from the garden center. To make them look extra special, I removed the foil wrap from the plants and placed them in eye-catching, black and white striped canvas totes I purchased at a craft store.
This arrangement is very simple and easy to put together, yet it's strikingly beautiful. I made these for myself as I am the holiday hostess this year, but any holiday host/hostess is sure to appreciate a centerpiece like this at their holiday gathering. After the holidays, they will have a chic storage tote.
Here are some of the other host/hostess gift ideas I came up with while shopping at Lowes:
The final gift suggestion I'd like to make is any combination of these items could be placed in an attractive container to create a generous host/hostess gift basket. A gift basket is ideal for the host/hostess that is hosting you overnight or even for a few days. I hope this list comes in handy as you dash out the door and stop off at Lowes on the way to your holiday party.
