Is anyone else bursting with excitement that holiday season is well and truly upon us?
It’s so wonderful to be able to celebrate with friends and family this year in a way we weren’t able to in 2020 and I could not feel more grateful! As soon as Halloween wrapped my mind promptly shifted to festive mode and I am embracing the spirit of the season this year in every way possible.
Be it for a family gathering or a holiday party with friends or colleagues, we’re also lucky to see the return of in-person gatherings this year — which means, we’re going to need some excellent 2021 hostess gift ideas!
Yes. You could go the super easy route and just grab a bottle of wine. But in the event you, like me, want to put a little bit more thought in…. today’s post will hopefully be a big help.
Perusing the internet, I was on the hunt for 2021 hostess gift ideas that show how much you appreciate and care for your hostess while wishing them the most magical holiday season possible! I also was looking for ideas that were more special than a poinsettia – while also being modestly affordable. There’s also NO candle in sight! Because although I do love my candles, why be predictable?
