    1. A marble pastry board that can be used to prep heavenly, carb-filled wonders that Anna Olson would be proud of. Plus, it can totally double as a cheese board for their dinner parties.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    This one has non-slip rubber feet on bottom to protect their tables and countertops.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $35.18+. Also available in green and black marble finishes.

    2. A wine aerating pouring spout that can make your $10 bottle of wine taste like a $50 dollar bottle of wine. Naturally, you should be giving this gift with a bottle of pinot noir or chardonnay, but that goes without saying.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    It's compatible with most bottles and makes pouring easy, so their guests won't accidentally spill red wine all over their new furniture.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $11.95.

    3. A set of gold-plated cheese knives that'll make even the cheapest cheeses feel like little luxuries.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Get a set of three knives from Amazon Canada for $23.52.

    4. A set of retro terrarium vases that can be filled with mini floral arrangements or used to propagate new plants.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    It comes disassembled, so you'll probably want to put it together and add a few plants before gifting it to your hostess.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $23.99. Also available in single and double-vase styles.

    5. A set of stainless steel whiskey stones that will keep their drinks icy cold, but won't water them down. We're not saying you should pair it with a bottle of whiskey (but you should probably pair it with a bottle of whiskey).

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    This set comes with eight steel liquid-filled ice cubes, a freezing tray, and tongs, so you won't need to purchase any extra accessories.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $21.80.

    6. A set of terracotta pinch bowls so that they can serve up dips and condiments in style. If you want the host to think of you as a true artiste, you can totally lie and tell them that you crafted them yourself in pottery class.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Get a set of six bowls from Amazon Canada for $18.38.

    7. A pack of Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel Seasoning so that they can create some killer dishes for their next brunch extravaganza. This pack comes with two, so I recommend taking one for yourself (trust me, you want it).

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Get a two-pack on Amazon Canada for $22.24.

    8. A bamboo pizza peel that can also be used as a charcuterie board. Honestly, if anyone hosting me actually owns one of these, I automatically assume their family has a charming little pizzeria in Naples.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Bamboo has natural antibacterial properties and is stronger than maple, but won't dull knives.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $26.22.

    9. A gold corkscrew, because you won't be bringing your hostess anything with a twist off cap and a regular, old corkscrew just won't do.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    This one has a serrated foil cutter for champagne and can be used a bottle opener, too.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $33.71. It also comes in four other colours.

    10. A set of metallic placemats that look a lot more expensive than they actually are.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Get a set of four on Amazon Canada for $13.58+. Available in four colours and two styles.

    11. A bottle of hot honey so that they can wow their future guests with their condiment selection (this will be the fan favourite, I'm calling it now).

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $22.91.

    Check out BuzzFeed's full review of Mike's Hot Honey.

    12. A porcelain sake set, because what kind of hostess doesn't dedicate a portion of the evening to drinking Japanese rice wine? Not yours (at least not anymore).

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    This set comes with one bottle and four cups.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.95.

    13. A mini fondue pot because if the thought of bubbling cheese and chocolate doesn't woo your hostess, I seriously don't know what will.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    This one is heated by a candle, so you won't need any lighter fluid of electric cords. It's also microwave-safe if you want to speed up the melting process. The set comes with a ceramic pot, a base, two fondue forks, and one tea light.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $23.11+. Available in two styles and six colour combinations.

    14. A set of patterned ceramic coasters so that none of their future guests get chastised for leaving rings on their West Elm coffee table, or whatever. It's never happened to me before, I swear.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Get a set of four with a holder on Amazon Canada for $16.99+. Available in four patterns.

    15. A set of olive oil and vinegar dispensers that look much fancier than the bottles they usually come in (especially if you just get 'em at the grocery store). If you really want to impress your hostess, christen them with some home-infused oils for their maiden voyage.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    This set comes with two cruet bottles with no-drip tops and a stainless steel rack.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $34.35+. Also available with white spouts.

    16. A knitted throw blanket that's just as stylish as it is cozy. Remember, anyone who says they don't need more throw blankets is lying. C'mon, we live in Canada. It gets cold.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $28.99. Available in 16 colours.

    17. A set of soy scented candles that will full their new home with calming, welcoming smells.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    This set includes rose, lavender, lemon, and Mediterranean fig scents.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $23.78 for a set of four.

    18. A box of conversation starters that'll get you through any awkward silence. Definitely a good distraction for when people start discussing politics. You know, so you don't have to remove all sharp objects from the vicinity.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    The set comes with 135 thought-provoking questions.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $30.

    19. An adjustable chef apron so your host can cook and eat in the same outfit without fear of covering it in marinara sauce (or ranch, I'm not here to judge).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $16.41+. Available in eight colours.

    20. A honey pot with a wooden dipper because what says you have your life together more than transferring your bottled products into another vessel.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    It's microwave- and oven-safe, so they'll be able to heat up their honey, too.

    Get it on Amazon for $18.81.

    21. A sampler set of gourmet teas that comes pre-wrapped so you don't have to mess around with ribbons and bows.

    From fruity and floral to sweet and spicy, this gift box has it all.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $29.95.

    23. A baguette miter so they can create uniform canapés. It may seem a little extra, but you don't know joy until you've perfectly sliced a baguette.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    This one's made of acacia wood and has a steel grommet that makes it easy to hang in the kitchen.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $39.99.
