If your gift-buying inspiration has run dry in the run-up the holidays, we have good news for you. From personalized gifts for him to spectacular ideas for gifts for her, we’ve got you covered!

The best presents for New Year’s Eve party hosts

There’s no excuse to turn up empty-handed this year!
We all know that hosting a party can be stressful, so what better way to make all the effort worthwhile than treating your friends or family members to a perfect New Year’s gift? If you’re attending a party this New Year, and you’re on the hunt for personalized gifts or present ideas that will blow your hosts away, here are some ideas to inspire you.

Gifts for him

What to buy for the host with the most!
If you’re catering for a male host, there’s a raft of incredible gift ideas out there. Adding a personal touch is a fantastic way to win major brownie points and really underline the thought that has gone into selecting the perfect present. The best way to excel when buying New Year gifts is to focus your search on the recipient’s interests and passions. For foodies and those enjoy a drink or two, you can’t go wrong with a gift like the Make Your Own Hot Sauce Kit by World Zing or a personalized cheese board like this one from Dust and Things. 

If you’ve got a sports fan in your midst, nothing will top a customized chest full of merch from FanChest or a pair of tickets for a match or game. For the well-groomed host that likes to travel, why not go for a personalized vanity case?


Gifts for the hostess

Luscious purchases for the ladies of the manor
If you’re on the hunt for gorgeous gifts for her, follow the same path and concentrate on her hobbies and passions. Does she live for fashion? Is she a fan of indulgent spa treatments? Is she always the first person to pop the cork on a bottle of Prosecco or Champagne? For the wannabe mixologist or the hostess who likes to party, the Global Cocktail Holiday Mixer Set is an exquisite choice that will definitely get the party started. For the house-proud hostess, nothing beats some new decorative accessories. In addition to popular choices like scented candles and vases, why not explore the option of something a little more quirky and unique and plump for a Cocod’or black reed floral bouquet diffuser

New Year’s Eve Presents: What to bring to the party

If you’re looking for a gift that will go down a storm at the party, rather than something that will delight the owners weeks or months afterwards, we’ve got some excellent ideas. Firstly, every party needs cocktails, and there’s a huge range of sets on offer. If you choose a gift like Cocktail Kingdom’s Essential Cocktail Set, you can impress with your skills, create delicious drinks for the masses and provide your hosts with presents they can use time and time again. Another key ingredient for a night to remember is music. While you could go for something personal and cute like a playlist or a mixtape that brings back happy memories from school or college, why not crank up the energy levels and get everyone on the dancefloor with a karaoke machine? For those who have volunteered to help with decorating the room and creating the right vibe, it’s also a good idea to stock up on balloons, confetti and other decorative touches.

Resolution-inspired gifts

For those keen on detoxing and recharging those batteries
After the indulgence of the holidays and the frenetic fun of New Year’s Eve, many of us vow to embrace healthier living or learn a new skill in a bid to enhance our health and wellbeing. While resolutions aren’t for everyone, they can provide useful inspiration for gifts, especially for couples that have got everything. 

When January arrives and the thrills and spills of the festive period fade into a distant memory, you can help your friends kickstart the New Year in style with a resolution-themed gift. Health and wellness is always a safe bet at this time of year when people tend to feel tired and a little flat after the exertions of Christmas and New Year. This is also a great avenue to pursue if you’ve heard your hosts talking about getting back to the gym or ditching the takeouts in favor of rustling up culinary masterpieces at home. If you’re going down this route, there’s a vast array of presents out there. From yoga mats and soothing spa gifts to juicers, innovative kitchen gadgets and even gym memberships, you’ll be spoiled for choice. For those who enjoy fitness, as well as well-deserved rest and relaxation, the Theragun is a fantastic gift idea. Cool, on-trend gym wear is another fabulous option, especially for fashion-conscious friends. Take a look at these outfits from Alo Yoga for inspiration. 

If you’re struggling for ideas after browsing this list of personalized gifts for him and ideas for her, you could always skip the shops and treat your hosts to a thank you dinner in the New Year. You could choose a venue, host a dinner party at your house or buy them a voucher for their favorite haunt. 

New Year’s Eve might not seem like the obvious opportunity to go all-out with gifts, but it’s always good to spoil your hosts and ensure they know how grateful you are for the invite. Whether you’re buying a New Year’s gift for your girlfriend or boyfriend, you’re visiting old friends, or you’re hanging out with family members, take these tips on board and get ready to help your hosts celebrate in style!
