The Wirecutter Host Gifts

Before you show up with another standard-issue bottle of prosecco, why not pick out something both crowd-pleasing and surprising? To find unexpected gifts that’ll delight your host or hostess, the Wirecutter polled their staffers and got a few hot tips from Danny Seo, the editor-in-chief of Naturally, Danny Seo.

Danny chose our Black Box as 'so good, it might be hard to give them away' gift!

"The chocolates in Recchiuti Confections’s Black Box were more luscious than any other candy we tasted during testing (a tough job). There’s never a bad time to give candy, but this sleek box is especially great for a host you don’t know well—it offers a luxurious sensory experience that’s almost guaranteed to please."
