When the typical host/hostess gift doesn't fit into your gift-giving style, why not try something a little different? These gifts are a fun and unique way to say "thank you" and make your host feel appreciated and special; they deserve it!1. Rustic Wood Flowers, $12-$30
I just adore these beautiful wood flowers by Etsy seller uncommon. They can be used as decor in the home year round!
2. Homemade Fortune Cookies, minimal cost
This recipe's cook time is just six minutes and the cookies can carry their own custom message. Make a few dozen to share with the other guests. Wrap in a tea towel and place in a basket for a great presentation and additional gifts for the host!
3. Dala Horse, from $13 to $1595
Spread happiness with a traditional Scandinavian Dala Horse or "Happy Horse." Etsy is a great resource for many different types of Dala horses. You can also buy them at hemslojd.com, a US based Scandinavian retailer.
4. Homemade Granola, approx. $5/jar
The best part about this gift is that you can make it in large batches at a relatively inexpensive cost. Check out this recipe for Homemade Olive Oil Granola from Apartment Therapy's sister, The Kitchn
5. Indian Spice Kit, $24
For the chef that loves to cook outside the box and wants to expand their cooking repertoire. At only $24, this kit makes a lovely and unique gift.
