Flowers, chocolate, and wine are always appropriate hostess gifts.
But this time of year, I feel the pressure to find a unique and festive present for each of our holiday hosts.
Instead of putting unnecessary stress on myself, I've spent some time coming up with a no-fail gift basket that works for every occasion.

This gift basket was inspired by my love for Mrs. Meyer's holiday scents. No one — and I mean no one — can resist the smell of peppermint, orange clove, and Iowa pine this time of year.

A Festive (And Stress-Free) Holiday Hostess Gift

Right now, you can grab a free set of Mrs. Meyer's holiday hand soap + dish soap + multi-surface spray + seasonal kitchen towel with your first order of $20 from Grove Collaborative. (The hardest part is resisting the urge to keep it for yourself!) (If you’re an existing customer, you’ll get a free set of Grove walnut scrubber sponges.)

Then keep reading to see how to wrap a festive and environmentally-friendly gift basket:

  1. Instead of a traditional gift basket, I chose a cleaning caddy to stick with the household theme. You can use anyone you like, but I’m especially fond of Grove Collaborative’s white enamel caddy. So useful and pretty!
  2. Skip the tissue paper and line the caddy with this gorgeous seasonal towel. It’s super thick and absorbent — perfect for drying dishes and mopping up spills while preparing a big meal.
  3. Place the tallest item, the multi-surface spray, in the middle. Your host or hostess will appreciate this endlessly useful spray for cleaning countertops, backsplashes, and appliances after guests go home.
  4. Arrange the smaller items beside the multi-surface spray. Mrs. Meyer's hand soap and dish soap are necessities in my kitchen, and guests always rave about the cheerful scents. I chose Iowa pine for this gift basket because it reminds me of a fresh-cut Christmas tree!
  5. I like to forgo traditional "fillers" like cellophane or shredded paper in favor of something more festive and eco-friendly. In keeping with the Iowa Pine scent, I gathered a few pinecones from our yard and tucked them into the gaps. If you chose the Peppermint scent, you could use candy canes and individually wrapped chocolates instead. And how fresh would some juicy oranges and fragrant cinnamon sticks look peeking out among the orange clove kit?
