Hostess with the Mostest Gift Ideas

Tis the season to party! With the holidays approaching us this week, you will most likely be attending a lot of events to celebrate. To help you show your appreciation to those who are hosting, here are some fun gift ideas!

First up, Anthropologie, located in Hyde Park! This store is simply gorgeous. The decor will inspire you and will make you want to live there! The employees will wrap these gifts up for you beautifully.


Counter clockwide: Holiday Cheer Dishtowel $18, Mr. Boddington’s Holiday Soaps $18, Homegrown Monogram Mug $8

One of my favorite locations for creating mini gift bags and finding stocking stuffers is Pier 1 Imports! They have such a variety of affordable, funky gifts. These gifts would be perfect for the host who knows how to have a good time!


Red Velvet Apron Bottle Decor $8.95 Reindeer Drink Charm Set  $12.95 Little Miss Claus Apron $19.95

My last store is my tried and true store, Target! I cannot live without this place in my life. One fun idea is something one of our relatives does: she bakes cookies and places them on a beautifully decorated holiday themed platter. Check out the two below if you want to do your own version!


Typography Melamine Server $19.99 Threshold Double Old Fashioned Tumbler $5.99 Tis the Season Tray $9.96

Of course, always play to the person’s personality. Maybe a bottle of wine or dish is plenty, but these ideas are for you to take it up a notch & be the ultimate party guest.

Eat, Drink & Be Merry!
