Holiday Hostess Gifts
Holiday party season is in full swing and you need hip hostess gifts—and fast! Here are a few simple and affordable suggestions that will leave a lasting impression, and secure your spot on next year’s guest list.
In case you haven’t noticed, the Moscow Mule is officially cool again and mixologists everywhere are personalizing the age-old recipe with a few new twists. Why not give your host the chance to craft his own version at home with a pair of official stainless steel and copper Oggi Moscow Mule cups ($15.87 each).
Home décor crafted from raw edge wood exhibits a rustic beauty and is super on-trend this season. If we were to take a gamble, we’d bet your hostess would love this set of 4- Sur La Table wood slice coasters for only $19.95.
On a cold winter’s eve, who wouldn’t love eating a bowl of noodle soup from a handmade CBeCeramics Chopsticks Bowl Set from Etsy? ($44 for pair))
For those in the DIY-set, why not gather some local kitchen staples into a thoughtful “Local Tastes” package? Here’s one suggestion for the Bay Area:
• A few sticks of assorted raw natural honey harvested in the Bay Area from Beekind Honey (80 sticks for $18.75)
• A sample bag of Omnivore Salt: ($5.50)
• A loaf of rustic bread from a local bakery
• Wrap them all together in a trendy tea towel—and voila.
