Easy & Affordable Hostess Gift Ideas - That Also Make Perfect Baby Shower Prizes

I don't know if you've seen these Bubba coffee mugs yet or not - but they are fantastic! And they make a wonderful gift!

The short, cute mug holds 10 oz of any hot or cold beverage and keeps it hot or cold - this is my biggest problem in the morning. I make a nice hot cup of coffee, get busy and forget about it, go to drink it an hour later and it's cold. (I found this one at Walmart, but you can probably find it on Amazon as well.) 

Add some k-cups (I used hot chocolate ones), wrap with cello and tie with bow - and there you have a simple yet awesome gift or prize!

People always need dish towels - and they have some really cute and stylish ones out there right now - I always pick mine up at TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Home Goods, Target or Walmart.

To the dish towel you can add things like:  a candle or some scented melting wax, a spoon, hand soap, colorful cleaning gloves, etc.

Bundle up some colorful body scrub and a fizzy bath bomb and you've got an easy and affordable hostess gift idea! This is great if you have to buy for several hostesses/helpers, or buy to give away as prizes. I got these at Walmart, but again, Home Goods, TJ Maxx, etc, are always great places to look for bath items.
