Holiday parties are one of my favorite things this time of year. I have some friends I only see in person at these gatherings. It may be the Japanese upbringing but I NEVER go to a party empty handed. I know how much work goes into the planning of a small gathering and I like to show my appreciation with a sgift. Most hostess gift guides include candles and wine. I wanted to step out of the box on this one from those basic ideas.
For your creative friend who has everything… Coloring is all the rage right now and I LOVE this Pride & Prejudice coloring books for under $16! Another super fun idea is this Kate Spade desk calendar for your chic hostess that works in an office setting.
For your friend who is alway in the kitchen… If you follow me on Snapchat (HauteBeautyBlog) you know my absolute OBSESSION with popcorn and this microwave air popper. It is super easy to use and makes just the right amount so you don’ over indulge. A cheese board is always fun and you can never have too many. This marble and wood one is stunning!
Does your BFF always say how tired she is/looks… give her this Charlotte Tilbury magic eye cream. I call it my nap in a jar. It firms and brightens instantly.
If you don’t really know her that well the POPSUGAR MUSTHAVE box is PERFECT! I just bought 5 of the November boxes to keep on hand because they are so perfectly curated for a hostess this month. I will reveal it tomorrow! Use code SHOP5 at checkout for a surprise!
I added a few more of my current faves below.
Let me know if you have a go-to hostess gift under $100 that I need to know about!
