Your holiday host has worked hard to create a warm, festive atmosphere with good food and drink. Show your appreciation by picking out a thoughtful gift that will be put to good use — not another candle or decorative soap set that's going to collect dust in a cabinet. Here are seven of our top 2015 gift ideas under $50.

Inspired by vintage floral decals, this gilded decanter and glass set harks back to a bygone age of glamour. The gold pattern is delicate, but the glassware itself is sturdy enough for serious entertaining.

$22 and $11

Made of durable brass with a whimsical state cutout at the top, these stirrers will add an element of style and regional pride to your host's home bar collection.

$45 for Set of 4

$38

Simple yet elegant, this gold-dipped porcelain tea set by DavidsTea is a must-have for tea enthusiasts.

$36 and $12

Speaking of which, if your holiday host was on board with 2015's most-popular beverage trend, then consider this koicha-grade matcha, prized for its thick consistency and unique umami flavor. Intensely aromatic and comforting, there's no better tea for a serious matcha lover.

$36

The next time your host is throwing a dinner party and can't decide on a cocktail or entree for the evening's menu, he or she can let these playful dice decide.

$38 Each
