I must admit since I’ve moved into a larger place, I’ve been hosting a lot more than I used to. It’s those moments when you are getting ready for your party that you realize you are missing a few key pieces. So here are my top 5 gifts under $50 to give your hostess this holiday season.
Recently, I was sent some Sparkling Wine by Michelle! When I tell you this wine was a huge hit with my friends, please believe me! I thought I would have at least one bottle left for Christmas but the girls devoured it. I wanted to experiment with holiday cocktails but it was gone before I could even get started. It’s the perfect gift, easy and straight to the point. My favorite was the Michelle Brut Rosé it retails for less than $15.00 a bottle. Michelle Sparkling Wine can be purchased here.
Another hostess gift that was a hit at my holiday party was New York Style Bagel Chips. These chips arrived on a platter in a variety of different flavors. I added a few different variety of homemade dips, once again this was a hit. You can get a tray from Marshall’s for less than $15 and add a few bags of New York Style Bagel Chips and store brought dips and you are done. Wrap it up in clear Christmas Wrap and add a bow. This gift will cost you less than $40. To find a store near you go here.
This 6-piece set is the perfect hostess gift, that is is she isn’t afraid to take a shot or two or three! This gift set comes complete with a decanter, 4 shot glasses and a ice bucket for only $24.99. It’s available in gold or silver and comes in a white gift box, you can get it here.
Maybe shots aren’t his/ her thing then try this beautiful Sommelier 5-PC Wine Bottle Set. Everyone drinks wine right? This set comes packed in a clever wine bottle cover. Included is a corkscrew, wine pour, wine stopper, foil cutter, and wine ring. A perfect gift for the connoisseur or the casual wine drinker like myself.
Now that we’ve covered food, wine and bar essentials lets not forget about the games. While I realize everyone is not a drinker the next best thing for a hostess is too keep their guests occupied. When I have time I’ve been known to enjoy a good game of chess or checkers and this is the perfect set. Get it on sale here.
So here are my top 5 hostess gift this holiday season! If you are hosting an event what’s on your list?
