Gifts for the Host or Hostess
Showing up empty-handed to a holiday party (or any party for that matter) is a big no-no. So don’t be that guy. Iron Accents has plenty of quick ship gifts for the host or hostess of your holiday party that are sure to make them glad they invited you!
Chances are the person you’re shopping for loves to entertain, so how about getting them something they will get plenty of use out of? For instance, our set of 4 Forged Iced Tea Spoons ($26.00) are a wonderful gift that is sure to set the ton for a simple, yet elegant evening of entertaining. These spoons are made from high quality stainless steel and are great for serving with any tall iced drink. Our Love Letter Dishes ($32.00) are also a huge hit with any host. They can fill these lovely dishes with fruit, candy, or whatever they to create a spectacular centerpiece. If you want to make your own word or make it more personal for the host, then check out our Ceramic Letter Dishes ($8.50 each). Some of our other favorite gifts for the host or hostess include our Vine Candleholder ($44.00), which is also perfect for the wine lover in your life, our Forged Cheese Planes ($12.00) to ensure your host has a great display full of thin, even slices of cheese, our set of 6 Castilian Old Fashioned Glasses ($64.00) with its gorgeous hammered glass that is sure to delight the host and guests alike, and our 6 inch Hammered Glass Candle Holder ($18.95), which is a simple gift that’s perfect for that hard-to-buy-for host.
Gifts for the Man’s Man
If you’re a woman, the “man’s man” might be the most difficult type of person to buy for. So whether it’s your husband, your dad, your brother, or your boss, a safe bet is always something that will fit comfortably in their “man cave”. In fact, we’ve discovered the following items are favorites of the men in our life and are confident the same will be true for you.
Our Cast Iron Jack ($18.00) can be used as a paper weight or a door stop and is sure to create nostalgic memories of those childhood sidewalk games. We recommend this gift for your boss or husband, as it will fit seamlessly in a man cave or work office. Another great item that can be used as a paper weight or a door stop is our F Bomb Paper Weight ($42.00), handmade by a talented local artist from reclaimed materials. This is sure to get some laughs, but we recommend giving it to your husband or brother, unless you have a boss with a great sense of humor. How about these Blackboard Tent Signs ($4.50)? What a great way to leave little messages for your husband around the house! And he can also use this to leave himself little reminders. Maybe he would like these cool Cast Iron Tree Branch Hooks *$12.00) to hang his hat, gloves, or scarf when he comes straight home and into his man cave (also great for the office).
Even the man cave needs some TLC and wall decor is a great way to bring a personal touch to any space. Our collection of Tobacco Lath Art boasts sometimes inspiring, sometimes hilarious phrases. Consider the “What the Hell” Tobacco Lath Art ($44.00) or the “Dog Beers” Wooden Box Sign ($8.50) from Primitives by Kathy.
Gifts for the Green Thumb
For people with a green thumb and a love of the outdoors, wintertime can be a bit depressing. Why not give them a gift that will get them excited for springtime and inspire them to plan their garden for the new year. The Herb Stakes ($7.95) are always a huge hit with gardeners. They are adorable and functional as they provide a great way to identify home-grown herbs, flowers or vegetables. A gardener can never have too many pots or planters, which is why these Long Tom Plant Pots ($8.00) are another great option. Handmade of natural clay minerals that has been wheel-thrown, these pots will change with time as a variety of patinas come and go as plants are planted and watered. Since most gardeners are also bird lovers, our Two-in-One Bird Bath/Feeder ($52.00) will bring your green-thumbed loved one endless amounts of joy. It’s perfect for watching birds enjoy water and seed from the same dish while relaxing on your patio on a summer morning. If the gardener in your life loves decorative garden accents, then they will love any one of our architectural inspired lanterns. Consider placing tea lights inside our Manchester Lantern to capture the timeless beauty of old world Europe in a stunning display. It’s a perfect gift for the garden lover in your life.
If you want to help cheer them up immediately instead of waiting for spring to roll around, how about giving this Aged Metal Wall Planter ($24.00)? They can hang it indoors and house an indoor plant for a lovely splash of color in any room. Our Iron Knot Wall Vase ($24.95) is another great option. Gracefully constructed from wrought iron for a simplistic yet stunning appearance, the flared cone vase beautifully holds a bouquet of fresh cut flowers and looks wonderful placed anywhere.
