Happy, happy Friday! It’s been relatively quiet around this space the past couple of weeks, but I’ve needed a break. We all need one sometimes, right? I think we’re going to have a quiet weekend at home before the hustle and bustle of the holiday season begins. We have plans every weekend from here until after the New Year! Bring on the craziness!
I know there will be lots of posts like this floating around over the coming weeks, but thought I’d go ahead and share since Thanksgiving is under a week away! My mom hosts Thanksgiving and I always like to take her a treat. So much money and preparation go into planning holidays and parties, and it’s just good manners to come bearing gifts. We make it a habit to bring at least a small gift anytime we’re invited somewhere – even if it’s just for a cocktail. I don’t like to go empty-handed, and am appreciative when friends and family reciprocate.
I’ve rounded up a few gift ideas for the hostess with the mostess!
Capri Blue Iridescent Jar Candle or Voluspa Maison Holiday Set of 4 Candles: I feel like a lot of people won’t splurge on candles, so these make great gifts! Who doesn’t want their house to smell amazing?!
Lush Bath Bomb: Hosting a holiday or party can be exhausting. Give your hostess the gift of relaxation with one of the holiday-themed bath bombs from Lush!
Barware Tool Set: I bought this gorgeous marble and gold set from Target – it looks fancy just sitting on our bar cart! It comes with four tools, including tongs, jigger, strainer, and bottle opener.
Kitchen towel (with bottle of wine or treat of choice): Is it a southern thing to give kitchen towels? I always pick up cute holiday towels for hostess gifts, usually paired with a bottle of wine or bourbon.
A game: Why not bring a little fun to the party? We LOVE Cards Against Humanity, but there are thousands of options out there if that isn’t your cup of tea.
To me, nothing beats a good bottle of wine or bourbon, especially if you’re short on time.
What are your favorite hostess gifts to give? To receive? Let me know! Have a wonderful weekend!
