9 Delectable Frugalista gifts for the Host/Hostess

Sometimes you intend a host/hostess gift as a share gift for the evening.

Other times it’s solely for the party givers. All of these delectable Frugalista Gifts for the host/hostess work either way.


Frugalista Gifts for the buffet host/hostess

Your Host/Hostess love cheese? They’ll love you for this. An intro to the Di Bruno Spanish Cheese Sampler. 3 distinctly flavorful (and bold!) cheeses. All made in Spain from lovely ingredients like sheep milk, wild grasses and herbs, tangy citrus, dark berries and peppery red wine. You’ll understand if the Host/Hostess doesn’t offer to open up these treats for the occasion, right? Who moved my cheese indeed.

The Host/Hostess just might share the boneless Jamón Serrano Ham End Piece. It’s ready to slice and serve. And the “carcass” works great in soups and stews.

$38 (1.5 Pounds)

Mini Paella Kit – Tiendo

Frugalista gifts for the Host/Hostess who makes all meals an event

For the gift that works well for enjoyment by the Host/Hostess’s alone: Mini Paella Kit in Gift Basket.

The kit includes a recipe along with the perfect paella ingredients (including select grade Saffron and smoked paprika).  And a steel paella pan they’ll use again and again. Complete in a pretty woven basket. All they add is the meat and veggies. Serves 2 People


Everyone could use a little Truffle Honey or Black Truffle Oil, right?  Or they’d probably like to try it. It’s almost as

good as having the actual truffles. Either of these will enhance eggs to pasta to roasts, especially the concentrated oil.

4.23 oz (Honey) $19  

Truffle Oil – Gourmet Attitude

3.38 oz (Oil) $20    8.45 oz $37 


Chutney Collection – Stonewall Kitchen

Frugalista Gifts for the Host/Hostess with an insatiable sweet tooth

Your recipient can enjoy this Chutney Collection at presentation and/or later. Collection includes our Old Farmhouse Chutney, Apple Cranberry Chutney, Mango Chutney and Major Grey’s Chutney. Works well with roast chicken or pork. Or, even cheese and crackers. The Host/Hostess will find good, flavorful uses for all four jars.



You’ll likely insist the Host/Hostess save the Peaceful Promise Gift Basket for later. It will give them time to appreciate the contents. Not only for the quality, but the back story. Palestinian and Arab farmers in Galilee worked together to produce this gem. The reusable grass basket contains Palestinian couscous, dates, and almonds from Palestinian farmers; and Arab organic olive oil and za’atar spice mix.

Your Host/Hostess probably never considered pairing stout ale and dark chocolate. Beer Candy did. In their Stout Caramel covered in Dark Chocolate. Flavoring the caramel with the rich, dark ale. Accentuating the roasty notes of the Stout with the chocolate.

6 oz. $19 12 PCS         2 OZ   $8 4 PCS

Frugalista Gifts for the host/hostess with flavor


Vadouvan curry spices – Le-Sanctuaire

This unique blend of aromatics and curry spices, called Vadouvan, originated in Southern India. A region originally influenced by the French over 300 years ago and still reflected in their cuisine. Vadouvan mainly contains onion, garlic and shallots in a special curry blend. The special blend makes it quite intense. Sanctuaire makes each blend fresh each order. It requires extra order time. 




Someone likes anchovies. If it’s your host/hostess recipient, give them something memorably delicious. These Flat Fillets of Anchovies in Pure Olive Oil come in traditional Glass Storage Jars with airtight bail & seal closures to hermetically seal out air and moisture. Bonus: Recipients have a great storage jar afterwards. Product originates in Italy.

$30- 20 oz


One, or more, of these Frugalista Gifts will likely fit your Host/Hostess recipient. However, I hope these suggestions also get your mind percolating about other, or similar , perfect ideas. Note also that each listed retailer offers lots of wonderful choices. If these Frugalista Gifts don’t quite work, check out the retailers. Seek. Peruse. Find. Delight the host/hostess.


Happy Frugalista shopping!
