The holiday season is fast approaching, and holiday season means party season. A hostess gift is always a nice way to show how much you appreciate being invited to the party. As with so many things, it’s the thought that counts, and you don’t have to spend a lot of money on a hostess gift. In fact, the most special gifts are those that you make yourself.

Here are a few ideas for inexpensive and easy hostess gifts you can make.

Coaster Set


  • 4 inch x 4 inch tiles; natural stone or ceramic
  • Decorative Napkins
  • Mod Podge
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrush
  • Felt Pads


Cut the decorative napkin into 4 pieces. One napkin will cover 4 tiles.

Napkins come in 2, 3, or 4 ply. Separate the layers and discard all but the top printed layer.

Using a soft paintbrush, add a layer of Mod Podge to the tile.

Lay the napkin onto the tile and add another coat of Mod Podge over the napkin. Make sure to use a soft paintbrush so the napkin won’t tear.


Once the Mod Podge is dry, gently tear away the excess napkin form the edges of the tile.

Add 2 more coats of Mod Podge to seal the coasters.

Add felt pads to the bottom of each coaster.

Tie twine or ribbon around the set of coasters for a nice presentation.
