Holiday Gift Guide 2018: For The Hostess

This time of year, I am especially excited for all the festive get-togethers with my friends! It’s always so fun going over to each other’s homes and celebrating like family. As a guest, I never like to show up empty-handed, so I always try to select a gift I know my hostess friend will love AND get some good use out of at her parties! And the best part is that a unique gift like the one she deserves doesn’t have to be expensive! Every item in this guide is under $100.

The sound of a whistling teapot is one of those cozy holiday sounds I always loved as a kid. This one comes in tons of colors!

      Hi Karen! I’m so sorry. That sweater is really old. That photo is from 2015 … maybe even 2014! * face palm *

      Hi Jennifer! We used a super old photo from 2014 as it was a good reflection of the gift guide topic. So, the sweater is super old and I don’t remember the name of the brand! I’m so sorry!
