Once October hits it’s basically Christmas, right? Some will agree. Either way, you’re probably invited to a holiday part or two. Be an impressive guest this year by bringing hostess gifts!
Having a lot of hosting experience, I know that anyone who hosts is totally exhausted by the time of the party. The reward for all of your work is seeing everyone there enjoying themselves. Imagine if someone walked in the door with a candle that you could start burning right then and there? A total hero in my book. As an avid online shopper and planner, I’ve already filled my online carts with gifts for my in-laws and girl friends that are hosting this year. My advice is grab intentional gifts and a few extra nice things, you never know what last minute gatherings will arise during the holidays. With last year’s gift guide being a hit, I wanted to get on this year’s sooner so you can be prepared early.
Before you buy, think about what you would want to receive. When you’re getting ready to host, what warm detail are you missing? Is it a cozy blanket, a candle for the bathroom, or a drink platter? Get that for the hostess! I linked a sparkly wine bag in the holiday section that I LOVE! Definitely ordering plenty to have on hand. It’s so pretty and dresses up a wine bottle.
I can’t believe the holiday rush is already here. It’s such a busy time for our little family. So many people to see and even more memories to be made! With everything going on, it’s never a bad idea to stock up on cards and hostess gifts. Use that empty shelf in your cabinet (if you can find one) to build your collection. You’ll be so happy when you don’t have to make that last minute stop before you head to the in-laws or friends’ house! Just pick the best fit off your secret shelf. So convenient. Now run to your party and be fashionably late!1
