Hostess Gift Ideas: Slow Cooker Gift Basket Giveaway


With the holidays coming up, there will be lots of parties, get-togethers and dinners with friends. If you’re in need of a hostess gift, we have a few ideas that might be better than the traditional bottle of wine or potted plant.

Citrus Juicer and Bag of Fruit

Fill a small bag or basket with oranges, grapefruits and limes and gift it alongside this affordable FreshMix™ 2 Cup Citrus Juicer (66333). Your hostess will be able to make fresh juice cocktails or serve juice with breakfast the next day.

Optional: add on Mason Jar sipper cups, a glass carafe or colored paper straws.

Coffee Grinder and Whole Bean Artisan Coffee

A coffee grinder is small, affordable and versatile, making it the perfect item for your favorite host or hostess. The coffee can be served with dessert or your host can use it later for fresh grinds before work. (See our coffee tips here. Print a copy to go with the gift.)

Optional: if your host or hostess isn’t a coffee drinker, gift the grinder with whole spices. It works equally well as a spice grinder!

Single-Serve Blender and Smoothie Recipe Book

Single-serve blenders are very popular right now as people are on-the-go, but want a healthy breakfast. This great gift offers your hostess a way to make that happen. It’s also great for making sauces, mayonnaise and dressings.

Optional: include some smoothie ingredients so your hostess has breakfast ready to go the next morning.

3-Quart Slow Cooker and Soup Ingredients

We’ve mentioned how much we love slow cooker gift baskets before, and we had to show you again. (Don’t forget, it’s a whole month of slow cookers!) Soup is very easy to make in a slow cooker, so offer one for the hostess as a gift that keeps on giving. It will get tons of use and the modern leaf design will compliment every kitchen.

We are giving one of these wonderful hostess gifts away this week. The 3-Quart Slow Cooker is filled with great soup ingredients, a cookbook and more! Scroll down to enter and check back on Friday to see if you’re this week’s lucky winner!
