Holiday Hostess Gifts

I can’t believe we are just a little over two weeks out from Thanksgiving. With the holidays just around the corner, our calendar is filling up with holiday parties and get togethers. Our first Friendsgiving is this weekend! This year I am creating my first ever gift closet with a few items to be able to grab and go if a last minute party invites comes our way. I hate to walk in empty handed :)

1. Candle | 2. Cozy Blanket | 3. Cocktail Glasses (bring a signature cocktail too!) | 4. Picture Frame | 5. Hors d’Oeuvres Bowl | 6. Cheese Knives | 7. Wine Chiller | 8. Coasters | 9. Bottle Openers (with a bottle of wine) | 10. Coravin | 11. Set of 4 Mugs (with a side of coffee) | 12. Sugarfina Bento Box

CANDLES: Candles are always a hit! I love to tie on a set of matches with a ribbon.  Nest Holiday Candles (this is my favorite scent) are great to stock up on because the price can’t be beat!  A few other favorites are Diptyque, Jo Malone, Votivo (in Red Currant) and Lafco.

DRINKWARE: If you are headed to a casual dinner party at friends, bring a set of 4 cocktail glasses with a the mixin’s for your favorite signature cocktail.  Everyone loves cute drinkware!

COZY BLANKETS: Everyone loves a blanket to snuggle up with during the winter months (or year round if you are anything like me!).  While it is definitely a pricey gift, it is perfect for a close friend or as a housewarming present. I love this one under $100,  this monogram one  from Mark and Graham, and this fuzzy one!

BRING THE WINE:  A good bottle of wine or champagne is always a fan favorite! I love to attach a cute wine opener, a wine chiller, or the best gift of all time– the Coravin.
