EEEEEKKKK, Thanksgiving is next week!! That means, HOLIDAYS which makes me so happy. Yes, there is a lot of stress involved, but if I plan ahead I save myself a tad less stress. So, with holidays comes a lot of holiday parties…which in my mind means a reason for a great outfit AND a great hostess gift.
I truly get SO EXCITED over hostess gifts!! I am usually giving them to women so I tend to go girly and something I would truly love. But, I am finding that a host gift for a guy is just as great to get.
I love to personalize it. If it’s for a gal I know adores jewelry, I go for a necklace or great pair of earrings. J.Crew Factory always has GREAT sales on their jewelry and you cannot go wrong with Baublebar. For the gal or guy that loves making great drinks…a book on cocktails!! Check Williams Sonoma for great gift set options!!
My biggest piece of advice is PLAN AHEAD!!! Order now and you will not be stressing a few days before and buying something you don’t love. I know I have 3 parties coming up that have “hostesses”. I am buying a candle, those earrings FO SHO and probably the decanter…you cannot beat that price!! I will then add a bottle of wine to personalize it!!
Colored Matchstick Jar – $16.50
I found these last year and they are just so darn cute!! And, hello, they’re functional too 🙂 I love that you can choose a color based on your gift recipient. Last year I gave lavender and orange!!
Ravenna Decanter – $23.40 (40% off!!)
I love the idea of giving this decanter with a bottle of red wine. I love the price even more and may grab a couple of these for gifts year round!!
How fun is this book!?!? I love that this book can be given male or female. One of my besties LOVES making fun cocktails so it would be perfect for her, but I know a lot of guys that would love this as well. And, it would look FANTASTIC on any bar cart!!
By far my favorite candle ever!! The scent is genuinely like real roses in your home. I purchase numerous ones throughout the year for myself and then use the glass jar in my bathroom to organize face and makeup products. Double win!!
Andorra Hoop Earrings – $36 + 30% off with code YAY30 (making them $25.20!!)
I LOVE giving women jewelry!! It does not matter your style or your age, jewelry is adored and WORN. It is the best feeling to be out a couple weeks after you have given the gift and you see the hostess wearing it!! Check out Baublebar, they have some great holiday gift sets right now 🙂 These are perfect for smaller/stud options or this set for someone who is a bit more bold.
