You may have a holiday party or two to attend in the next couple of weeks…or maybe you already went and showed up empty-handed. Here are some handpicked hostess gifts that go beyond the ubiquitous bottle of wine. Show up with one of these, or send one along post-party with a thank you note, and you’re sure to be invited next year!
Keep in mind that many of these shops have “Gifts Under $25” collections, so if you don’t find what you want here, browse a bit more. And finally, do yourself a favor and stock up! I made sure to include really reasonably-priced things so you can buy in multiples and not break the bank.
Haitian Spirit Recycled Steel Ornaments –The Hunger Site Store (every purchase from this site helps fight hunger)
