Holiday Hostess Gifts

I never liked to show up to a party empty handed.  When I lived at home, my mom and I always kept a stash of goodies in a drawer to give as "emergency gifts."  We would pick up little things we found on a mega sale - nail polishes, small leather goods, candles, coasters, costume jewelry, the occasional umbrella - and keep them on hand just in case we got invited to a last minute birthday dinner or party.  
If you share my "never show up empty handed" mentality, here are some ideas for all of the happy hostesses in your life:



1. Bottle of wine + wine tote   I love this adorable SCOUT Spirit Liftah from LPS Designs - cute, functional, & affordable.  I'm a big fan of giving gifts in reusable bags, so this is absolute perfection in my eyes.

2. Macarons   Macarons are such a cute & dainty little snack.  I found these online, but I'm super excited because next year I will be able to WALK to a macaron bakery from my house!  (Then everyone will be getting them as gifts...)

3. Wind & Willow Dip Sets  I worked in a small boutique for two years, and we sold Wind & Willow products.  They are super simple and taste amazing.  The Asiago & Roasted Garlic Dip, Homestyle Potato Soup Mix, and Chocolate Chip Cheeseball are my favorites.  

4. A nice candle  I know, candles are a little cliche... but who doesn't love a good candle?  I think this Aromatique one seems really nice, and I own a set of the Old Factory Candles that I really enjoy.  TJ Maxx usually has a great unique & affordable selection.

5.  Leather Monogrammed Coasters  My favorite kinds of gifts are those that are practical, yet luxurious.  These completely embody that.    (PS -Pretty sure giving these guarantee you an invite for the next party ;) ) 

What is your "go-to" hostess gift?
