Gift Guide: The Host/Couple

Here are my go-to gifts for the couple you shop for as one or the host of the holiday gathering! Everything from tableware and drinks, to snacks and decor! Some of these links are affiliate links which means I may make a percentage of the sale when you shop!

Hometown Hello

I am a big fan of customizable gifts and Hometown Hello has a great collection. Shop ornaments, coasters, mugs and more. The zip code ornament is a great gift for someone in a new home or the host of you holiday (I got it for my sister last year!) I use the ornaments as my stocking tags and they look so cute! I got my mom a “Momma Marie” mug and she loves it. This is the perfect gift for a couple or host of the party!

Hot Sauce and Crafting Classes

These are such cute couple gifts! They are virtual classes put on by Seattle cocktail Club and hosted by me and Anthony! Carla Marie is hosting Crafting and Cocktails with Jessica from Seattle Cocktail Club and you'll make a beautiful moss wall art! Anthony is hosting Hot Sauce Making with Syd of Ballyhoo Hot Sauce and you'll also learn how to elevate the food you're eating with hot sauce rather than drowning it in heat! We are both really excited to host these classes in January!

Art of sucre

Who doesn’t want cotton candy? This isn’t your carnival cotton candy…Art of Sucre is sophisticated cotton candy (but I still jam my whole hand into a bag) There are flavors like watermelon, sugar cookie, orange bourbon, and more. The coolest part of Art of Sucre are the Glitter Bombs...drop them into champagne for some fun. Get the glitter bombs and champagne as a gift for the host of the party

philoSophies Ornaments and Cards

A quality gift for a couple that just got married, your BFF, baby's first Christmas, the host of the party, and so much more! Shop an ornament the best fits the person on your list! If you want to send your gift directly to it's recipient, Joanna (the founder of philoSophie's) will handwrite your note to them on a matching card! The ornament comes boxed and bowed. Use code CARLAMARIE through the end of Cyber Monday for free shipping!

Laura Burkhart

If you’ve ever seen a picture of my headboard you’ve seen Laura Burkhart’s work! She is an unbelievably talented woodworker and during the holidays she makes wooden ornaments and tree-toppers! The top of my tree is a Laura Burkhart star and it’s so unique.

Wax Cabin Candle Co.

I have been a fan of Wax Cabin candles for years and this summer Anthony and I got to do a Carla Marie & Anthony collab! There are plenty of scents and designs to choose from but my faves are Cozy Cabin

Henri Co.

Wow the host of the party with handmade pottery and spoons! They are made near Seattle and I have a jewelry tray and a utensil older from Henri Co. and I love them!


Boxed wine but make it cool! I went to a wine tasting for this company and it was great! Each box holds four bottles of wine and stays fresh for up to six weeks. The box has a spout so you can fill up wine whenever you want. This makes the greatest gift for a host of the party! Use code carlamarie20 for 20% off!
