10 Fabulous Holiday Hostess Gifts
Under $100!

It’s hard to believe that December is already here! And you know what that means? For my four-year-old it’s all about decorating the tree, pointing out Christmas decorations as we drive around our neighborhood and making a long list of “must-haves” for Santa.

But for me, it means wrapping up my holiday shopping (I usually try to be done by this time, but no such luck this year!), spending some quality time with loved ones and attending a few fabulous holiday parties.

I know that the last thing one of my lovely hostesses needs is another bottle of wine, so I’ve put together a list of 10 special gifts – all under $100 – that are sure to enchant and delight. There are even a couple of items that will satisfy the ultimate wine connoisseur – without the bottle of wine!

Hopefully, a few of these gifts will come in handy for you, too.


1. Eurocraft Brass Pineapple Trinket Dish $19.50
This adorable and welcoming brass trinket dish will fit perfectly on a nightstand to hold jewelry, or on a desk to hold coins, paperclips, keys or other small items that need a stylish home.


2. Herbivore Coco Rose Body Polish $36
A coconut and rose-scented body polish that contains a highly moisturizing and gently exfoliating blend of virgin coconut oil and floral Moroccan rose that leaves skin soft , smooth and hydrated.


3. Diptyque Limited Edition Frosted Forest Unicorn Candle $70
Seriously, who wouldn’t want a gorgeously scented unicorn candle that smells just like Christmas? The constellation of the unicorn contains a nebula located at 2600 light-years called the Christmas Tree, the birthplace of sparkling stars. Combined with a bold interior of green, embodying harmony and beauty, the unicorn inspired a candle reminiscent of the invigorating scents of the majestic conifers. Fir needles, Hinoki wood and mint invoke the rare aromas of a lush frosted forest.


4. Claus Porto Mini Soap Gift Box $70
This gift box is filled with nine hand-wrapped mini shea butter-infused soaps covered in artfully illustrated paper inspired by Belle Époque Europe.
