If you’ve thrown a party or entertained before, you know just about how much work it goes into party planning and prepping. There is so much work involved in hosting family and friends often times, as a guest, you take for granted all the hard work the hostess has put in not only the day of, but likely weeks before the actual get together.
This holiday season, I promised myself that I’m going to be a great guest, and show the hostess my share of appreciation! I love finding unique gifts at DIXIE Outlet Mall because not only can you find great items at discounted prices but there are a variety of stores offer suitable gifts for all.
I handpicked the cutest and on trend items for a gift basket that will sure help the hostess put on the perfect bash.
I think it’s safe to assume that if someone is hosting a party, they have an appreciation for home goods. I decided to center this budget friendly hostess gift basket on great entertaining items such as wine glasses, cheese knives, and kitchen items.
I was so ecstatic when I came across this acrylic coaster set which I was also able to customize with a monogram at Keyman Engraveables. I guarantee any hostess will be pleased to receive this because it adds a personalized touch. Keyman Engraveables offers a variety of customized gifts that can be done on the spot (within an hour) while you shop!
With the New Year just around the corner, this pink and rose gold desktop calendar from WINNERS is super chic and what party planning wouldn’t want to start keeping track of their next events and get togethers?!
Party means clean up, right? Fruits & Passion offers so many great soaps and lotions designed for the kitchen. Coupled with an offer to help with the post-party mess, I’m sure you’ll definitely be on the next invite list!
Holiday parties will almost certainly include wine and cheese. I love surprising the hostess with a bottle of my favourite red some new cheese and meats that I adore. TJ Meats at DIXIE Outlet Mall has a huge selection of cured meats and cheeses that make a great addition to this gift basket. These fun set of wine glasses and rose gold and marble cheese knives from WINNERS are just an absolute fit!
