Okay, so I know I'm not the only one that feels this way. During the holiday season, money is really tight. On top of that, we're running from event to event, not to mention getting stuck in traffic trying to get there! So, usually, if you're like me, a hostess gift is a last-minute pick-up, and it's usually nothing creative and often goes over the budget -- even for a simple bottle of wine, since most of us don't want to show up with the cheapest brand! No fear!
I asked Magpies Gifts to come up with 5 Hostess Gift Ideas that won't break the bank. All of these gifts range from $13 to $35.
1.Cutting Board/Spreader Sets:
a. La Cadeaux - $30
b. Wood Monogrammed Maple Leaf Designs - $33
c. Mudpie Marble/Wood Initial Boards - $33
2. Mud pie White Dip Sets: $20
3. Michel Designs Hand Festive Pump Soaps: $12.50
4. Wine Stain Remover (to accompany a bottle of wine): Chateau Spill - $9
5. Make Your Own Hostess gift. Buy a stack of four Le Cadeaux appetizer plates for $34. Take one, add a bar of Michel Design holiday bar soap ($11) to top, and wrap it in plastic and tie with a bow.
So, what I recommend (to alleviate unneeded stress) is purchasing five items you love for hostess gifts ahead of the season and have them ready to gift when the time is right! You can find all of these items at Magpies Gifts. www.magpiesgifts.com
