Gifts For The Hostess

(Click on the image to shop each item.)

During the holiday season, there are plenty of get togethers and parties. It’s always a good idea to show up with a little something for the host, but you definitely don’t want to break the bank! I’ve gathered some of my favorite gift options under $30 that you can bring to your next holiday party.

PS the wine wasn’t linkable on the gift guide, but it is my absolute favorite and my go-to when I need a gift in a pinch! It is totally affordable and tastes amazing. I’ve linked it here for you guys.

Let’s be honest, men are the most difficult to shop for. Whether it’s your brother, dad or significant other, it can be next to impossible to find that perfect gift for him.

What I’ve come to find over the years (especially since being a wife) is that buying him something he typically wouldn’t buy for himself is always a safe bet. For instance, these moccasin slippers¬†are nothing Mark would ever buy himself, but I guarantee he would wear them almost every day!

I also had to include this Clinique self care kit. Does anyone else’s husband ever ask to borrow their products all the time? I’m pretty sure Mark has borrowed or stolen half my hair and face products. This kit for men is a perfect gift!

Maybe my favorite item on this week’s gift guide is these Bose bluetooth headphones. As a runner, I can definitely attest that wireless headphones are the way to go! It’s so much easier to just throw these on and go.

I hope this gift guide gives you all some ideas for your shopping trip for him. Happy shopping!



For my second gift guide this year, I decided to focus on gifts under $50. These gifts are perfect for close friends or female family members. Whether she loves hosting (how cute are these pineapple shot glasses!?) or is a sucker for a good handbag, there’s something for every woman in your life!

I personally love receiving nicer items than I would typically pick for myself on Christmas. For example, I don’t often spend $35 on lipstick, but I would absolutely love to get gifted some! I hope you guys are enjoying these gift guides as much as I am. If you have any questions about the products listed, just let me know!
