18 Host Gifts That Look Straight Out Of 'Big Little Lies'

Home

Stylish picks for the equally stylish entertainer

'Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, that's a full month in which we'll be providing gift ideas for everyone on your list with our Unwrapped holiday gift guides. So make your holiday shopping a breeze this season, and let us help you find gifts for all the people in your life.

Do you have a host extraordinaire on your holiday list? You know, that friend with impeccable taste, whose house exudes Big Little Lies decor energy and throws some of the chicest dinner parties and gatherings around. The one you can't gift just any bottle of wine. It's with these discerning people — who also obsessively watch the HBO drama revolving around the secret lives of five Monterey moms — in mind that we've assembled the best host gifts to give the cooks, entertainers, and decor-lovers in your circle.


Ahead, 18 gifts — ranging from surreal prints featuring bored housewives with secrets of their own to cheeky decor and stylishly packaged food — that will guarantee you'll get an invite back again.

Nothing Fancy: Unfussy Food for Having People Over, $19.50, available at Amazon.

Our favorite cookbook of 2019 for its no-fuss approach to hosting, Alison Roman's Nothing Fancy will have your recipient wanting to throw even more dinner parties next year.

Anissa Kermiche, Popotin ceramic vase, $70, available at MatchesFashion.

Butt vases took over Instagram's feeds this summer. This one from jewelry designer Anissa Kermiche is one of our favorites.

Janet Hill Studio, The Etiquette of Blackmail art print, $25, available at Etsy.

Canadian painter Janet Hill creates dreamy prints that feature women in settings ranging from mundane — in a bathtub, in bed, etc. — to exotic — atop a camel, in India, etc. The title of this print alone is worth purchasing for the person who lives for Big Little Lies-level drama.

H&M x Jonathan Adler, jacquard-knit wool throw, $199, available at H&M.

Most pieces from the collaboration between fast-fashion giant H&M and home goods designer Jonathan Adler sold out almost immediately. This quirky throw is not only available, but is made of 100 percent wool and will keep its wearer cozy at home for the rest of winter.

Great Jones, Holy sheet, $25, available at Great Jones.

From Great Jones, the makers of this year's most Instagrammable cast-iron Dutch ovens, comes the cookware brand's newest product: a sheet pan, made using a nonstick ceramic coating that won't leave a mess behind.

Sagebrook Home, Set Of 2 Marble Bookends, $39.99, available at T.J.Maxx.

For the person who read Liane Moriarty's books before the HBO series was even announced.

Ansel & Ivy, Rosso Peperomia, $42, available at Ansel & Ivy.

For the millennial obsessed with houseplants in your life.

Pineapple Collaborative x Kathryn Tomajan, The Olive Oil, $28, available at Pineapple Collaborative.

The chicest olive oil your recipient will see this holiday season from Pineapple Collaborative, a community that brings together women who love food and hosts events in various cities.

Chronicle Books, Gin Lovers Playing Cards, $15, available at Goop.

Even if your host doesn't like gin, these illustrated cards by painter and tattoo artist Jean André, featuring 40 different kinds from around the globe, will delight their design eye.

Monkey 47, Distiller's Cut, SRP $80, visit Monkey 47 for more information.

On the other hand, if they are into gin, include this limited-edition bottle from Monkey 47 — a favorite gin brand among connoisseurs — featuring a 48th botanical, myristicae arillus, and available in the United States for the first time ever.

The Citizenry, brass incense set, $75, available at The Citizenry.

You can't go wrong with any of The Citizenry's artisan home goods, but we're partial to this stunning brass incense set handcrafted by a fourth-generation workshop in Japan.

Compartes, vegan organic paleo chocolate bar in Strawberry Pitaya Acai, $9.95, available at Compartes.

A stocking stuffer for the superfood-obsessed host.

Fancy AF Cocktails: Drink Recipes from a Couple of Professional Drinkers, $15.40, available at Amazon.

For the host whose vibe is more Real Housewives than Big Little Lies, this cocktail book features clever, hilarious recipes from Vanderpump Rules cast members Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval.

Murray's, Cheeses of the World Sampler, $49, available at Murray's.

If you live in New York, you're lucky enough to have access to the cheese haven that's Murray's. Whether that's the case with your recipient or not, ship them a holiday set from the shop.

Farmgirl Flowers, The Market Box, $69, available at Farmgirl Flowers.

There's nothing a true host loves more than fresh flowers. Buy them a subscription — ranging from one to three deliveries a month — to Farmgirl Flowers' Market Box filled with seasonal stems.

David Yurman, Cable classic candle with berries and rose scent, $95, available at David Yurman.

If your host doesn't leave the house without their cable bracelet, they will love David Yurman's new holiday candles featuring the iconic jewelry design.

If your giftee always has a stash of Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc in their fridge in case of a last-minute get-together, surprise them with the winery's 2019 vintage in celebration of the the 35th anniversary of the release that made New Zealand wine popular Stateside.

OKA, small tortoiseshell candle holders, $25, available at OKA.

Candle holders pretty enough to also use as glasses.
