9 Unique Gifts for Party Hosts

Parties are all about the good times – laughter, memories, beverages and snacks of all sorts! But have you ever stopped to think about the silent heroes of all of the greatest parties you’ve ever gone to? That’s right, we’re talking about the party hosts!

Party hosts are the life’s blood of the party. Without them, there would literally be no party. So, when it comes to showing your appreciation, why stick with the same old flowers and wine that have been on repeat since…forever.

In this guide, we’ve created a list of some stellar unique gift ideas that your party host will love and use.

Choosing a Host(ess) Gift

Knowing what to buy someone can be ridiculously stressful, especially if you can’t just ask them.

When choosing a host(ess) gift, there are a few things you should consider:

  • Practicality: Will they be able to use this gift in their daily life?

  • Intent: Why are you choosing this gift?

  • Budget: Host(ess) gift budgets depend on you and the occasion. Choose items that fall within your budget and align them to the event (birthday, engagement, or just because).

BrüMate Leakproof Tumbler

Give the gift of leakproof with BrüMate’s NAV 22oz tumbler! This cupholder friendly tumbler is made for keeping hot and cold drinks at the perfect temperature, all party long.

Your party host can sip in confidence with the completely leakproof lid, and the tumbler is the perfect everyday companion for even after the party's over. For the best fit your host, choose from over 10 colors + prints or even customize it with BrüMate’s personalization!

Candle Set

The warmth and comfort of a candle just can’t be beat. Give your party host a gift that will help them relax – maybe enjoy a bubble bath after the party – without adding unnecessary clutter.

Before you buy anything, try your best to figure out what scents your host likes.

Cheese Knives

What’s a good party without a charcuterie board? If your party host is a lover of all things charcuterie (who isn’t, really), a cheese knife set is a perfect gift.

The perfect complement to any cheese board, cheese knives are a stylish and practical party host gift. With a wide variety of cheese knife sets available nowadays, you can choose the style and variety options that best suit your hosts preferences and your budget

BrüMate Insulated Cocktail Tumbler

After (honestly, even during) a party, your host will want to unwind. Enter: the BrüMate Rocks tumbler. This tumbler is triple-insulated and designed to keep your cocktail the perfect temp from the first sip to the last.

Keeping your drink of choice cold for up to 12 hours or hot for up to 3 hours, it’s got you covered. Even better? It's 100% leakproof so you can party on without ever missing a drop.


Does anyone else miss the good old days where chocolate was a customary gift? We sure do. Give your party host a decadent treat they can look forward to enjoying while unwinding from their party.

BrüMate Wine Canteen

Okay, we know we said “go beyond the typical wine gift”. But we are!

The BrüMate Winesulator holds a 25oz bottle of wine, keeping it cool and crisp longer than a recorked bottle. Plus, the BevGuard™ insulation will keep your party host’s wine at the perfect temperature for up to 24 hours. Whether you provide the wine or not, this gift is perfect for hosting, and makes the traditional bottle of wine more fashionable, durable, and portable than ever.

There is no rule against giving your host a gift they can use while hosting. It seems pretty logical if you ask us.

Personalized Charcuterie Board

If you are really feeling appreciative of your party host, a personalized charcuterie board is the perfect gift. This gift combines style and functionality. Your host can store the board aesthetically on their kitchen counter, with your personalization on display, then pull it out when it’s time for their next party.

BrüMate Leakproof Straw Tumbler

We recognize that not all party hosts want an alcohol-themed gift. The BrüMate Era Straw Tumbler is perfect for the hydration-conscious party host (or those that really should be). With a 30oz and 40oz option, this tumbler will help keep your party host hydrated and moving throughout the night, and every day thereafter.

The 100% leakproof tumbler is perfect for the frantic party host, prone to spilling or knocking their tumbler over. No party fouls, guaranteed!

Local Artisanal Goods

In the interest of sustainability and supporting small businesses, we have to encourage local artisanal goods. Locally sourced goodies are a great way to make your host feel appreciated by choosing a more unique gift and doubles as a great way to support your local community.

Give your party host a gift they can indulge in, with a variety of products to choose from, like artisanal cheeses, jams, and even chocolates!
