First of all, I'm pretty sure I loaded 100% of these items into my shopping cart when I was making this roundup...for MYSELF. #selfish. I'm really digging the pink and gold color scheme and especially the Yay! Boom! Cheers! shot glasses. How cute???
Anywho, why are we talking hostess gifts today?
Because they're classy AF.
We all have that one friend who's just got her sh*t together, right? She's polite, organized, and really makes us feel guilty about eating Easy Mac for dinner. Think about it. This is totally something she would do. She'd bring a dope a** hostess gift, even if it's under 20 bucks, just because it's the classy, adult thing.
I'm not saying I'm giving up my Easy Mac anytime soon, but hey, sometimes you gotta fake it until you make it. So, whenever I'm invited to a party, I'm definitely going to have one of these killer items on hand.
Some are pricier than others (beautiful pink agate coasters, I'm looking at YOU), but it's the thought that counts. For me, I'd probably pick either a luxury bar of soap or a bottle stopper (both in this roundup are ~ $15) for a typical gathering, and save one of the nicer items for if I'm staying out of town at a family/friends place. Either way though, any type of hostess gift (no matter how big or small) is a super thoughtful gesture that won't go unappreciated.
And hey, we're one step closer to adulthood/maturity, right?
How is Christmas just a week away? Time has been flying by, and I'm nowhere near done with all of my holiday shopping! I even contemplated if it was too late to post a few more gift guides, but realized that there's probably a lot of people in similar situations out there. Am I right? Please tell me I'm right...
Gosh, I love the holidays. It is the most wonderful time of the year, right? *cue Andy Williams* Truly though, there's nothing like spreading a bit of love during the cold winter months, whether it's through the most lavish of gifts or even just a genuine smile. In fact, the next time I go to get my signature medium hot chocolate from Dunkin', I'm definitely treating the next person in line...I've always wanted to do that! It's the little things that make all of the difference during the holidays...
Secret santa gift exchanges are one of my favorite holiday activities. There's something about keeping who you're shopping for on the down low that makes it extra exciting! In fact, there was so much anticipation between myself and my roommates that we just had to do our swap last weekend. So what if we caved in during just the first weekend in December? The only problem is that I'm still getting Elfster reminders that my gift exchange will be happening soon...
