Gift Guide

The Best Gifts for Party Hosts

By: Lodge Cast Iron / October 26, 2022

Holiday party season is coming back in a very big way, and we couldn’t be more excited for the opportunity to visit with friends and family. While a gift for the hostess or host is never mandatory, it may just get you an extra helping of leftovers to take home—not to mention an invite for next year. Great host or hostess gifts show that you’re grateful to be included. At Lodge, we love to choose gifts that help our hosts with their future entertaining or cooking, always with a fun wink. Check out our best ways to say a big thank you for entertainers of all kinds. And full disclosure, we will be RSVPing a hearty “heck yeah” to all the parties this year.

Cookbook
The Lodge Cast Iron Cookbook

Get some of our most beloved recipes and tips, all wrapped up between the covers of the classic Lodge Cast Iron Cookbook. Whether your hosts love cast iron or are just getting started, this book offers simple recipes full of big flavor (and cast iron magic). And did we mention a whole chapter on cornbread?

Cast Iron Wedge Pan

We love to gift a wedge pan with a package of a beloved baking mix or handwritten recipe card. The wedge pan is versatile enough to make individual frittatas, scones, cornbread wedges, or brownies—which means it’s a great thank you gift for any host.

Nokona Leather Handle Holder

The Nokona leather handle holder is one of those products that Lodge employees love to recommend to friends: not only is the premium leather made to last for a lifetime of high-heat cooking, it’s also handcrafted in the United States by legendary Nokona ball glove makers.

Oyster Enameled Trivet

While this enameled trivet is great for year-round use, the snowflake shape makes it a particularly fun gift around the holidays. The trivet is made to last and helps protect tables and surfaces when your hosts are serving food directly from their favorite skillet or dutch oven.

Holly Dish Towel & Spatula

Holly Accessory Set

We are definitely the type of people who put out our holiday decorations a few months ahead of schedule, but with accessories like this dish towel and silicone spatula, can you blame us? The custom holly design is great for hosts that love to make merry.

Chef's Platter
Chef’s Platter Set

Nothing says “I appreciate your entertaining style” like an iconic piece of cast iron made for cooking and serving. The cast iron griddle top piece helps sear in big flavors in the kitchen, and the hardwood base helps transport sizzling food to the table, without damaging surfaces.

Fluted Cake Pan
