Basketweave Placemats by Chilewich, $14 each from chilewich.com 

What's not to love about Chilewich's mix and matchable, washable, durable, and sleek tabletop textiles? For frequent party throwers who want their spread to wow, but don't want to worry about spilling wine on an heirloom tablecloth, these items are a must. The Carbon Basketweave placemat is shown above, but we spied a place setting at the company's first retail outpost in NYC (set to open on November 20) that paired the Spun placemats and runners in black and white for a minimalist yet incredibly tactile look. Or exercise your inner Albers and layer blocks of color.  Photo 9 of 13 in Holiday Gift Guide 2014: For the Entertainer by Diana Budds
