It’s a new day and also a new gift guide! Today I’m sharing Gifts for the Hostess, Friends and Neighbors. These are also great gifts to give to the person who has everything. Christmas will be here before you know it! You can click on the items in the image above or links to shop. Be sure and scroll all the way down for even more gift ideas. For even more gift ideas, shop all of my holiday gift guides HERE. Plus, today I am spotlighting a few charities in case you want to honor someone with a donation.


Hostess, Friends & Neighbor Gifts

Let’s talk hostess gifts… as I said, many of these gifts are great ideas for not only the hostess, but also for friends, co-workers, teachers, and neighbors. Be sure to stock up! One of my favorite gifts from this guide is probably this agate cheese board. It is so beautiful and comes in several colors. It pairs perfectly with this marble cheese knife set. I also love this wine chiller or this gorgeous wine decanter paired with a bottle of wine. Other nice gifts for the hostess includes a unique tonic or a gourmet olive oilAs you all know, I love Jordan Winery, especially gifting their wine. This season, Jordan Winery is offering a wide selection of holiday gifts, including wine, chocolate, olive oil and caviar gift boxes. Shop their gift boxes HERE.

If you’re looking for some more decorative kitchen items, this serving platter is gorgeous and festive. Another unique and nice gift option is this iPad/cookbook holder. It pairs perfectly with a beautiful cookbook. Another useful and lovely give are these acrylic monogrammed coasters or these tapered candles. They come in four colors and shapes for a unique twist on the usual wax candles. Looking for more unique gifts? I recommend  this holiday jigsaw puzzle!

Lastly, a gift you can never go wrong with is the gift of relaxation. A nice candle or some luxury bubble bath always a great option. They will also love this ultra soft throw blanket. What about the gift of CBD? You know how much I love The Trusted Lab and their bath bombs are the bomb! 🙂

If you are invited to a “Favorite Things” or Holiday Gift Exchange, today’s post offers excellent suggestions. A wonderful friend (and longtime follower/subscriber) of mine invites me to her Favorite Things Christmas Brunch each year and each guest has to bring 3 identical gifts of at least $30 value. We then draw numbers. It’s a little hard to explain the method to the madness, but basically you leave with 3 new favorite things after all the exchanging. Plus the brunch and friendship we enjoy is wonderful!

Local Spotlight: I love the idea of giving a gift of honor in someone’s name during the holidays. For example, you can make a donation to the North Texas Food Bank in honor of someone and help feed the hungry this holiday season. Or maybe make a donation to your loved ones favorite charity. A donation to Community Partners of Dallas helps children in need. Just $50 buys shoes for 6 children. Personally, I make donations to Crystal Charity Ball in honor of members. The possibilities are endless!
