There's something pretty fabulous about a holiday that you're not hosting. Actually, there are a few things. You don't have to cook. You don't have to clean. And you don't have to deal with last-minute phone calls informing you of gluten allergies. But there is something you do have to do, and that's to show due respect to the person who's taking care of all the above. Luckily, Bravolebs are here to show us clever gift ideas.
Below, we've rounded up a few gift ideas that would impress the host or hostess who has everything — including a Bravo addiction. From a pepperminty candle that hawk-eyed Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans will recognize to a singing bowl inspired by some of Kelly Dodd's most famous antics, these gifts range from luxurious to sweet and cheeky. And don't worry: There are also a few boozy items on the list.
Now, keep scrolling, get your shop on, and ensure that you get invited back to the next holiday bash.
Around Christmastime, the queen of "making it nice" only lights Nest Candles. Dorinda Medley once told us, "I love Nest candles. very single day, I light a candle as soon as I wake up, in my living room and my bedroom. It always makes you feel like you’re home immediately.”
Delight your Dorinda-loving host by picking up one of The Real Housewives of New York City ace entertainer's favorite things.

There's nothing like a communal shot of vodka to bring party guests together. Inspired by the famous Shotski in the Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen clubhouse, this version holds four shot glasses. Don't forget to pick a Word of the Night!

This singing bowl is made for peaceful meditation, which is probably just what your host needs after putting up with so many houseguests.
