Looking for something out of the ordinary to give to your holiday hostess?

If you happen to be staying with your hostess for the holidays and you know they make a dynamite breakfast, try Runamok Maple ($16.95 to $229.95,
runamokmaple.com). The organic small-batch maple syrup is available in pure maple syrup, or unique infused, smoked and barrel-aged options - like Pecan Wood Smoked, Makrut Lime-Leaf Infused, and Rye Whiskey Barrel-Aged.

Are they all about that vintage look and can't function without that first cup of coffee? Russell Hobbs Retro 8-Serving Coffee Maker ($79.99, www.russellhobbs.com) offers a brewing progress gauge that shows how long until brewing is finished, as well as how long brewed coffee has been on the warming plate, an advanced showerhead design that ensures full flavor extraction, and a super useful pause and pour function - so you don't have to wait until the entire pot is brewed before you have your first cup.

Are they a frequent flyer? They'll appreciate IQAir's Atem ($399, www.iqair.com), a personal air purifier that is tiny enough that can easily transport to use at work, or pack to bring with the next time they travel.

Is a fabulous bottle of wine a staple? MAKO Decanter ($20, makobarware.com) is a super affordable, chic option. Not only was it designed to enhance flavors, but it fits an entire 750 ml. bottle of wine.

If you're doing a secret Santa exchange, the Rabbit Discreet Flask ($10, www.rabbitwine.com) makes a fun giveaway. The leak-free flask has a removable lid - making it easy to fill and clean and it's super durable, so go ahead and get rowdy.

Is she always talking about her skincare routine? Osmosis Trial/Travel Kit - Anti-Aging ($62, www.osmosisskincare.com) features all your skincare essentials, including Purify, Clear, Correct, StemFactor, and Protect, and the convenient travel sizes means they can bring them with them on any winter getaway.

They can mix up their favorite seasonings to create the ultimate rub with the Taylor Dry Rub Shaker from Target ($7.99, www.target.com), which also reduces interaction with raw foods and the silicone nubs aid with the tenderization of proteins.

If their parties tend to end in a fierce game night, What Do You Meme ($29.99, whatdoyoumeme.com) is bound to impress. Created by the Fuck Jerry team, the game is similar to Cards Against Humanity, but with memes.
