I’m so excited to share my first Holiday Gift Guide for the Hostess! Is it just me or is Christmas sneaking up on us faster than it usually does? I’m still getting used to how incredibly fast time flies now that I’m working, it’s completely different than being a student, reason #743 I would love to go back to college… anyway with Christmas around the corner and the majority of my weekends and free time already booked for the next month I have been doing a lot of my Christmas shopping online and have gotten most of it out of the way!
I love gift giving, I might like it more than actually receiving gifts, there’s something about picking out a great gift for a friend or family member and watching their faces light up when they open it up!
Stainless Steele Cocktail Shaker :: I think a personalized touch like a monogram is so nice for a hostess gift. Looks like there was a little more thought than just grabbing something out of the closet. Obviously not ideal for every situation, but if you’re headed to a holiday party where you know the hostess really well or they are part of your family this is a great option!
Confetti New Year Holiday Card Set :: I’m loving the touches of gold in everything this year, these greeting cards are a great option. If you’re anything like me, you pick up loads of Christmas cards and always forget to grab a few New Years themed ones.
Leather Bow Touchscreen Knit Gloves :: tech friendly gloves with a bow on them… need I say more?
This Round is On Me Wine Tote :: More pops of gold and a nice change of pace from the standard Holiday wine totes.
Anchor Bottle Opener :: A cute bottle opener is a great gift that will definitely be used. A lot.
Diptyque Candle :: I’ve had my eye on one of these candles for a while, I’ve heard they smell amazing and I think the jar would be so cute as a pencil holder after it burns out! You really can’t go wrong with a good candle for the hostess.
Fun Matches :: You have to have something to light the candle with! These are nice because they look nice if they’re sitting on an end table or a coffee table, a little cuter than standard matches.
Places to Go, People to See Coffee Table Book :: A good coffee table book is always a fun hostess gift. This one looks amazing, the colors and detail are gorgeous, not surprising as it’s a Kate Spade book!
Wooden Wine Crate :: These are easy enough to have hidden in the closet for when party season rolls around, all you have to do is add wine!
And a few I couldn’t fit on the collage:
Naughty or Nice Soap Set :: I love these super fun soap sets and think they would be so fun for a hostess to jazz up the bathroom, a room usually ignored when it comes to holiday decorating!
Escape the Ordinary Candle :: I can’t get enough candles in my life, especially at this time of year! This super cute Kate Spade candle is another great one that will also leave your hostess with a great little holder for flowers, pens and pencils or whatever else she might want to fill it with!
Bone Tray with Brass Handles :: Gorgeous tray that would be great on an ottoman when having people over, serving a cheese plate or drinks and just as decoration. I love it!
