Merry! Merry! Holiday Hostess Gifts!

I

t's that time of year again!  Joyful music, hot chocolate, and swirls of Christmas lights every where you turn.  If only we could take a step back and actually enjoy this time of year instead of ailing our pounding heads as we add yet another thing on the bottom of our to-do lists.  

One of my favorite parts of this time of year are the parties and gatherings.  The hosts and hostesses of said gatherings work so hard to make it a such a special time, so that we can take a breather from all the madness and relax with all of our loved ones.  These brave men and women who throw these amazing parties every year deserve to be thought of and I am one of the guilty ones who waits until the very last minute to think of something to bring as a thank you. 

In order to be more prepared this time around, I have researched some of my favorite hostess gifts and wanted to share with you in hopes that this will help you during this busy time and give you more time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the Holiday season.  These would be a great hostess gift for not only a Christmas party, but also New Years or any time of year!
