Wow! Can you believe it is already time for Holiday Gifts?! Last time I blinked it was June?
I always, always, ALWAYS bring a hostess gift with me to any Holiday function I am invited to. This seems to be a somewhat dying art.. I was taken aback by the shock on a friend’s face last weekend when I gave her a Hostess Gift when invited to a small FriendsGiving Dinner. She was so grateful for my small gift, and it made me feel great to give her a small token of my appreciation for hosting our gathering. I think we should bring Hostess Gifts back! Here is my list of favorite Hostess Gifts that are (mostly) under $50.00:
ONE: Yankee Candle’s Cherries on Snow scented candle gift sent in a reusable plaid tote. $34.99
This gift is perfect for the Hostess that you might not know too well. It is neutral and simple, yet the presentation is adorable with the black and white plaid. Perfect for any Holiday Party!
TWO: Shanti Aromatherapy’s All Natural Vanilla Lavender Gift Set $28.00
This adorable gift set is great for the lover of all natural gifts. The set includes a body lotion, lip balm and body scrub that is seated with essential oils, not artificial fragrances.
THREE: Pottery Barn’s Monogrammed Oval Soap Set $49.00
These beautiful soaps are perfect for displaying in a guest bathroom over the Holiday Season. This gift shows a more personal touch, as you must know the Hostess’ middle name!
FOUR: West Elm’s Makerskit Classic Cocktail Making Kit $36.00
Maybe I’m a bad example but nothing say Holiday Party like Booze.. I mean Family. Go get Aunt Suzzie buzzed by making her a classic Martini or Manhattan. Everyone will thank you later.
FIVE: Target with Surya’s Jingle All The Way Pillow $29.99
This festive pillow would make the perfect addition to any sofa this season. It also comes in six colors to match anyone’s decor!
SIX: EngraveMeThis’ Personalized Cutting Board $48.79
EngraveMeThis offers a ton of different sizes and monogram styles to fit any budget. Wouldn’t it be great to sign up to bring a fruit and cheese plate to the party, and serve it on this beautiful custom wood cutting board that becomes your hostess gift?!
SEVEN: William Sonoma’s Tartan and Chrome Photo Frame $55.00 (sorry!)
While this might be $5.00 over budget.. it is simply BEAUTIFUL. It is a simple, understated yet elegant gift. Make it personal by adding a family photo!
EIGHT: Pottery Barn’s Textured Linen Wine Bag $12.00
Just add a bottle of your favorite $5.00 wine and you’re all set! What makes this the perfect easy gift is that the gift is also the wrapping!
NINE: ChickSpings’ Zara Tartan Plaid Infinity Scarf $25.00
Can you tell I like to personalize my gifts yet? I think taking that extra step to go personalized shows that you really thought about the hostess while buying! This plaid infinity scarf is simply adorable for anyones winter wardrobe.
