Christmas is almost here and while Gavin & I aren’t hosting, our weekend is completely packed with fun-filled family get-togethers. With both of our families being from California, it really makes getting together so much fun and with all the traveling we’ve done this month, it’ll be nice to stay local.
For hostess gifts, I always like to bring personalized gifts from our recent travels. My grandmother likes wine, so I always bring her a wine cork from somewhere I’ve visited. This year I got one from a small store in Lake Forest, IL while I was there. She also always has hors d’oeuvres out while we’re getting settled in, so I brought her a hand-made salsa bowl with a spoon from our most recent trip to Cabo. If you haven’t done any recent traveling, bringing a nice bottle of wine, a candle, or something special for their home is always nice. Hosting the holidays can get extremely stressful, so in order to help make our hostesses with the mostesses feel loved, below are some hostess gifts under $50 that I’m loving right now! Click the photos to shop, and from my family to yours – have a very merry Christmas, a happy Hanukkah, and a wonderful new year!
