Hostess Holiday Gifts 2014 — Present Ideas For The Holiday Season:
Like any gift you give, be sure to put some thought into it. Even something so small could be oh-so-special! Finding something that is both meaningful and personal is the key. If you know someone has been dying to try something new or just redecorated, get them something to go with their new decor. If you know they love to indulge in hot chocolate on a cold night, put together a little bag or basket with all the essentials.
DIY Hostess Presents That Are Totally Easy, (I Swear!):
If you aren’t close to the host or hostess you can’t go wrong with a nice bottle of wine or champagne. Be on the lookout for festive packaging or get a great wine bag to make it even more special. Another great idea is to make something. Bring it over on a brand new, decorative platter that the host can keep for when they entertain — it’s a great, universal gift idea!
Even if you aren’t into DIY ideas, a safe trick that practically anyone can do is crafting a holiday potpourri jar. Simply buy mason jars from your local hardware store and fill them with colorful holiday potpourri — buy a couple of bags and mix and match for a beautiful, colorful creation. My go-to spot for potpourri is Home Goods. Add a ribbon or a ‘Happy Holidays’ sticker around the jar and it’ll be extra special — and it’s a great gift to keep handy for those you might have forgotten about!
SHOP our picks if you’re still stumped — just remember, a host or hostess gift shouldn’t break the bank! It’s all about doing something thoughtful during the holiday season.
