I honestly believe that college taught me some pretty bad party habits! I'm almost ashamed that I don't ever remember arriving to a college party with a host/hostess gift in hand. My oh my, how things have changed! I guess it just took all of my 20s to finally learn the golden rule of all parties: DO NOT SHOW UP EMPTY-HANDED. Check out our fun host/hostess gifts below that will give 'em pumpkin to talk about. 😉🎃
Gift Idea #1: Halloween Cupcakes
If you're broke and/or you love to bake, Halloween cupcakes are the perfect delicious host/hostess gift. Halloween is one of the crazy times of the year when diet cheating isn't just allowed, it's expected. Don't forget to start baking early so that you still have time to get all decked out in your costume.👻 Try Preppy Kitchen's Witch Cupcakes.
Gift Idea #2: Fall Wine
We can drink wine all year long but it really feels
right during autumn. Your host/hostess will love a
bottle of wine like this 2018 Jean Boisselier
Coteaux Bourguignons Rouge. This wine has
flavor notes of strawberry, raspberry, and black
pepper and originates from France. Yum!
$24 at Wine Insiders
Gift Idea #3: Hand-Blown Glass Pumpkin Candle
How cute are these glass candles? Give your guest this cute pumpkin spice candle to "spice" things up.😜 The smell is nothing short of fall. . . the kind of fall that involves pumpkin spice lattes. Then again, is there any other kind of fall? The candle is hand-blown and made in New York with ❤️.

Gift Idea #4: 3D Printed Pumpkin Spice Latte
Well, this might be the coolest thing EVER. These 3D printed pumpkin spice drops will make your host/hostess shriek with joy. And yes, we really think they will shriek. The box includes six delicious pumpkin-spiced drops that dissolve in milk or water. You had us at 3D. Who am I kidding? You had us at Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Gift Idea #5: Dark Humor Misfortune Cookies
If the host/hostess has a dark sense of humor, these misfortune cookies are bound to give them a few laughs. These cookies may be easy to eat but they are tough to swallow. Each biscuit includes a mercilessly funny message that is sure to send the host/hostess to a full-on cackle. After all, it is Halloween!
