Your mother was right: Showing up empty-handed to Thanksgiving dinner is entirely unacceptable. And yet, the expected flower arrangement can leave something to be desired. This year, why not spring for the kind of thoughtful gift your hostess never knew she needed—and soon won’t be able to live without?

We can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t swoon after opening Diptyque’s larger-than-life candle or Susanne Kaufmann’s 24-day herbal advent calendar, filled with small luxuries like a calming whey bath, rose oil, and anti-aging tea. Akarina’s next-level plant-grow light packs enough power to turn any small-space dweller into a green thumb in no time—giving her the tools to grow greens or flowers without any sunlight.

For the host who has everything, on the other hand, Ex Nihilo’s personalized perfume experience—redeemable at Bergdorf Goodman, where a skilled scent expert will walk her through the creation of her own custom signature fragrance—can’t be beat.

From Frédéric Malle’s linen spray (you’re going to want to pick up a second for yourself) to Wary Meyers’s charming graphic striped soaps, here are 10 hostess gifts that will make a lasting impression.
