In case you haven't noticed the long lines, aggravated crowds, and hundreds of emails filling your mail box each day, holiday shopping season is upon us! See, the thing about Black Friday and Cyber Monday is that retailers really, desperately want us to believe that these two occasions are the best days in the entire month of December to score sales. However, as the years have passed since these traditions were first announced, the "sale days" have become quite blurry. Is it just me or does it seem like these "biggest sale of the year" deals tend to span the entire month now? Either way, it's a good enough excuse for me to continue on shopping and taking advantage of these ridiculous prices.
Furthermore, everyone has a "hostess" in their life, right? If you can't think of a friend or family member that is the designated go-to for hosting holiday celebrations, dinner parties, and the occasional happy hour, chances are it's you. So, whether you're shopping for that someone on your list that always has an open door and endless stories to tell around the dinner table, or you're simply shopping for yourself, my first installment of holiday gift guides is here and packed full of goodies:
01. to go with any room (and any season) and hold pretty flowers $34
02. to keep your guests cozy and warm on the couch $180
03. to hold your trendy tiered cake $58
04. to remind you why you slave over dinner every night $30
05. in case your guests are in need of some offensive entertainment $25
06. to warm the tea after dinnertime $90
07. to show your guests that you're healthy and on trend $25
08. because you're fancy, obviously $32
09. to add a little extra flavor to your tea time $13
