Entertaining is in my blood. I come from a long line of women who know what it takes to throw a gathering that’s fit for a king and queen. And to say we have had some pretty epic parties throughout the years would be an understatement. Our family sure knows how to throw a party!

I learned everything I know about entertaining from watching my mom and grandma doing it hundreds of times throughout my childhood. As I got older, I started helping little by little. As the years went on, I would take on more responsibilities. 

I was probably in my early twenties when I was able, and confident enough, to fully take over. I started hosting events and holidays in my own home with the help and support of my mom and grandma. Although nerve-wracking at first, I finally found my groove and never looked back.

Now in my late 30’s, I can honestly say I’ve hosted more events than I can even count. Whether it be an elaborate Friendsgiving gathering or something simple like a Sunday Game Day BBQ, I’ve come to be able to hold my own in the world of entertaining. I love every second of it too, in case you were wondering!

When you entertain as much as I do, you find yourself looking for products that will make your life easier. And if they’re pretty too, that’s even better! Below you’ll find my list of gifts that will leave any entertainer you know swooning in happiness!

10 Gifts for the Person Who Loves to Entertain

Happy Everything! Serving Platters, Bowls, Plates

Basically anything from Happy Everything! is an entertainer’s dream. I was introduced to the company back in April when two of my best girlfriends bought my birthday present from their online store. To say I’ve been obsessed with their products ever since would be an understatement.

They have so many products to choose from, but they’re most known for creating beautiful bases and attachments to add to them. They have attachments for different seasons, holidays, and life moments. This allows you to keep the same base all year long and simply switch out the attachments for the occasion you’re trying to celebrate. Isn’t the concept amazing!?

Spoon Rest

Spoon rests might seem like an odd gift idea but let me explain before you think I’m a crazy person. Have you ever set up a buffet or family-style meal in your house before? I do this a ton, often with multiple crock pots involved. Of course, serving utensils are needed when placing these dishes out to share. The problem then becomes where do you place the serving pieces when they’re not being used. You can use a small plate or napkin but having some nice spoon rests would be a little classier.

Cake Stand

Cake stands are great gifts for entertainers. There is so much you can do with them besides displaying a cake. It can be used as decor as well as displaying all different types of food…not only cakes.

Food name cards and/or placement cards

I absolutely love labeling dishes, especially in a more laid back atmosphere when I set up a buffet-style meal and everyone is serving themselves. Having food labels allows the guests to know what they’re eating and keeps the hostess from constantly having to tell each and every guest what’s being served.

In terms of the placement cards, these would come in handy in a more formal atmosphere to show your guests where you’d like them to sit.
