12 Days of Jackson Hole Christmas: Treats for the Hostess with the Most-est

Part of what makes the holidays so festive is the warmth of catching up with friends and family. But party after party can make finding the right hostess gift exhausting. So spare yourself and let us do the work for you.

Everyone brings a bottle of wine, so mix it up! Bring a marble wine cooler by RSVP. You can pick one up at one of Belle Cose’s five high-end home décor shops in the valley.

And when the wine is so good you have to save some for later, make sure your host has a festive and memorable wine stopper. Located in Gaslight Alley, MADE is known for their handmade usable items from over 360 artists from across Wyoming and the USA. Their Bucking Bronco Wine Stopper is oh so Wyoming.

Everyone wants their home smelling delicious when guests arrive. The Hot Springs candle by Keap will remind your host of soaking in Granite Hot Springs on a freezing cold day. Sold at Twenty Two Home .

Instead of just brining flowers, brings flowers IN a beautiful vase. Owned by the artist, Susan Flemming, WorkShop carries her jewelry as well as other handmade items including wall art, children’s goods. This pottery is made by Cynthia Vardhan Ceramics. See an example at the top of this page.

Because Pendelton never goes out of style pop into their store on Town Square for one of their hand towels. And you might even be able to snag a special edition Total Solar Eclipse blanket for yourself.

Known for their artistic, finely crafted, artistic wood-handled knives, New West KnifeWorks has a pair of shears that will make unwrapping holiday presents easy. And they’re no joke—they can de-stem vegetables and herbs, crack open crabs, trim dough while baking, gut fish, and more. Oh and the Klein Cutlery Break-Apart Kitchen Shears are on sale.

After Christmas comes thanking those who gave you gifts. Known for some of the best cards in town buy the Boris Notecard stationary set at Paper and Grace.

Any good hostess will cull their favorite music to create the perfect playlist for their party. For the true music-lover consider making a donation in their honor to 89.1 FM KHOL. It’s our commercial free community radio station that relies on its listeners to stay on air.
