Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts For The Hostess + Huge Sale Alert

Hey there, lovelies!

The season for holiday corporate events and ugly Christmas sweaters is upon us and it’s important to not arrive empty handed! It’s quite an undertaking to invite groups of people into your home! You know … getting the house cleaned and decorated, preparing hors d’oeuvres, curating and sending invite, following up on invites and keeping everyone entertained! The host or hostess would never ask for a thank you, but it’s common courtesy to bring a little something to show your appreciation for their time and effort. It could be something as small as a bottle of wine [love this faux fur wine holder as a fun way to present your gift!] or as generous as a French oven, like this one that’s been on my list for awhile! Coasters and candles are always a nice little gift idea, as well! Hope this guide gets your gears turning and helps make this gift buying a little easier! xo. Check out the latest sale news below …

    I enjoy your posts so much. Your items I frequently purchase. I’ve loved each one. Thanks for all the hard work. My husband and I are going to Rome in January 2018 for 5 months ( He is a Fulbright scholar,and will be teaching for 5 months.! ) Consequently, I loved your Italy post. Iwill be taking many of your items that I purchased with me.
