Remodelista Gift Guide 2022: Gifts for the Host

November 23, 2022

I know I’m not alone in admitting that I’m out of practice at hosting parties. I’m not necessarily a natural host so, for me, it’s like a language: I have to use it or I lose it. Whether you’re shopping for a rusty one or for an old pro, here are gifts sure to please a host at any level.

the alessi socrates corkscrew, designed by jasper morrison has changed my wine  15
Above: The Alessi Socrates Corkscrew, designed by Jasper Morrison has changed my wine opening game significantly. I struggled with a classic corkscrew for years because I liked the look of it—and didn’t want anything too large taking up the cutlery drawer. Then I bought the Socrates and it pops out the cork brilliantly. Plus the accordion design makes it compact when not in use. The corkscrew can be found for $72.56 on Amazon.
