10 Fabulous Hostess Gifts

Our Queen of the Caboodle Kelly makes sure you don’t leave the hostess with the mostess empty handed this year. And, believe ME… after reading Kelly’s ideas for hostess gifts, you’ll be jumping at the chance to have everyone over!

From Kelly:
The holidays are in full swing and it is time to start thinking of gift ideas! If you are anything like me, there are always a few people that I forget to buy gifts for until the last minute-one of which is hostess gifts for Thanksgiving and holiday parties. A bottle of wine always works in a pinch, but it is fun to give your hostess something unexpected for her hospitality! Below are 10 great gift ideas $30 or under for the hostess with the mostest:

1. Fingerless gloves-Sundance
Festive and warm, and something she’d probably never buy for herself.

3. Vintage decorative bottles- Moonshine Girl Bottles-Etsy

These beautiful bottles are handcrafted using vintage bottles and materials and look really beautiful on a shelf in a bathroom or mantle. They offer many different selections and I just love the holiday themed bottles and beach inspired bottles filled with sea salts and tuberose scent.
