Gift Guide 2013: For The Host & Hostess

I am so excited for the season of Gift Guides! It is my favorite time of the blogging year. I plan to role out one for him, one for her, one for tots, and one for the hosts and hostesses. So without further ado, here is my first guide of the season. Make your host or hostess happy with these terrific treats:

The combination of adorable tumblers and a drink mix, or a drink mix and a book of cocktails, or any combination of the three would be great for a couple hosting a party. I think I post these glasses every year because I love them so, and I have actually given them as hostess gifts myself, so I can vouch for how cute they are! In the candle category, a favorite home accessory of mine, I have the Diptyque winter scented candle. These are the gold standard in candles, and the Christmas patterns are just lovely. Pair that with an adorable match strike for a really generous gift! Or, what about this candle cloche? I didn't even know what a candle cloche was until I saw this, but I think I love it! I have long admired this adorable Anthopologie vase, so I thought I'd throw it into the mix. Paper products also make a good gift, like these note cards or this whimsical pad. Personally, I don't think a home can ever have too many throws, and West Elm has a number of throws on sale for some seriously amazing prices. (This one is only $39!) And, to bookend this guide, let's wrap up where we started: with the alcohol. How about a fantastic bottle of wine (Ridge is divine), an adorable wine tote, and a festive bottle stopper? I'd be pretty stoked to receive this (if I could currently drink). Let the parties commence!
