Holiday Gift Guide For the Hostess
If you’ve signed up for my weekly newsletter, I announced that I will begin my Holiday Gift Guides. For my first gift guide of the year, I started with a holiday gift guide for the hostess. I started with this gift guide because I don’t know about you but my calendar is starting to be filled up with holiday parties, festivities, and gatherings.
I always enjoy giving the host or hostess a gift, and I usually like my gift to be something that they find useful for the party they’re hosting or eventually will be using in future. Or what if you are hosting a holiday gathering? Hopefully you can find something for yourself that will make your party a little extra special!
Foolproof Gift for Anyone
Out of all the items listed in this gift guide for the hostess, the one that I consider a foolproof gift is the monogram mugs. They’re affordable, cute, and I noticed that anyone that has received them geniunely loves them. I own this version of the monogram mug and I love it! I love it so much that I started collecting all of Anthropologie’s monogram mugs, haha! The one listed in this gift guide is their latest version. So if you’re stuck trying to figure out what to give anyone this holiday season, this mug is guaranteed perfect for anybody (not just for a host/hostess).
I also announced in my newsletter that this holiday season I will be hosting several giveaways. Most of my giveaways will be on my holiday gift guide posts. I figured it would be a great way for you all to have an opportunity to spoil yourself! I am working with amazing brands such as BareMinerals, Cabana Life, Patchology, Charming Charlie, etc for theses amazing giveaways! So that you all don’t miss a giveaway (majority will run for a week), I will send out an email sharing the holiday gift guide and giveaway. So basically, if you haven’t yet, you should join my newsletter 😉
With that said, today is my first giveaway of the holiday season. Check out the details below!

I’m not sure how practical it is to show up to a party and give your hostess a bar cart, but hey, it sure is gorgeous!
Haha no. I was thinking along the lines if you yourself is hosting. I clarified in the content that this is for someone who is hosting (could be yourself!). Thanks so much!
