Party planner. Host with the mostest. Resident extrovert. Whatever you call them, every friend group needs one, and every family basically lives at their house come November. They’re the person with the best snacks, the coziest home, and the perfect party playlist. Above all else, they’re natural caregivers and love nothing more than having people over and making their loved ones happy.

In other words, they deserve an absolutely amazing holiday gift (bonus points if it speaks to their favorite activity: hosting). To kickoff your gift brainstorm, we tapped Havenly lead designer and fellow host Melissa Wagner for her list of on-point gifts for the entertainer. From cheese boards to game sets, any natural-born host will absolutely adore the below presents.

entertainer gift guide
  1. Gold Napkin Ring ($10): Because anything designed by Leanne Ford is an immediate yes from us. Elevate any place setting with these solid, simple, beautiful, and timeless statement rings. 
  2. CB2 Beaker Pitcher ($9): This oversized pitcher is perfect for every conceivable occasion: bloody marys for brunch, martinis for happy hour, red wine sangria for a fall dinner party or football tailgate. Plus, it’s only $9!
  3. Copper Bowl ($30): We’re big fans of form-meets-function, and this hammered copper bowl scores on both. Shiny and pretty enough to be on display, and can be used to dish up anything from candy to popcorn.
  4. CB2 Domenica Decanter ($40): This is not your typical decanter. Crafted from a deep blue crystalline glass, it’s small but beautiful and definitely not something your gift recipient already has. 
  5. Champagne Flute Set ($63): A modern twist on the classic champagne flute, this set of eight is perfect for hosting large groups who all love the bubbly.
  6. Lucite Poker Set ($140): This is a complete departure from your standard leather-wrapped poker set. It’s perfect for the contemporary party planner that loves hosting a game night. 
  7. Dessert Plates ($12): These beautiful hand painted dessert plates will make every celebration feel that much more special.
  8. Marble Bee Cocktail Picks ($40): Upgrade your host’s bar cart with these unique marble cocktail picks. Pair them with their favorite bottle of whiskey, gin, or vodka for a complete gift.
  9. Hand-Carved Paulownia Wood Bowl ($26): This versatile bowl is perfect for passing sliced sourdough at dinner, or housing bright clementine oranges as part of a centerpiece.
  10. Cake Stand ($69): Sweet scallops add delicate detail to this serving platter designed by Monique Lhuillier. While it’s classified as a cake stand, it’s perfect for scones, tarts, muffins, quiches — the list goes on.
  11. Colorful Serving Tray ($48): Gift a playful pop of pattern and color for their tablescapes. This beauty can also help them with that all important cocktail service as guests mix and mingle.
  12. Cocktail Smoking Cloche ($240): Any self-taught mixologist with a flair for funky cocktails will appreciate this theatrical smoking cloche.

And of course, you can never go wrong with gifting design magic. Give them a gift card for a Havenly design package, and invite them to a fun and personalized online experience as they enjoy a room glow-up.
