You’ve picked out the perfect dress, found some sparkly new shoes and even got your hair did. But what on earth do you bring for your glamourous hostess? I have no idea — but Courtney Starheim, event planner and principal of C Star Events does. She shares with us part two of her gift guide. Read part one here.
Let it Snow
For the hostess who manages to cook a gourmet four-course meal after a long day of work, yoga class, and finishing her book club book (two weeks early).
7. Cozying up with a Wool Throw
after a long day is just what the doctor/ Santa ordered. I love this one from The Cross
are a joy to watch bloom and a breath of fresh air over the (long) winter months. The bulbs can be arranged in pebbles or in stones, as pictured here
9. Tree Ornaments
are both festive + fun and a unique option for that hostess who has everything. Paloma’s Nest
has a great holiday collection. [$28]
10. Holiday Music
is meant to be shared. For a quick-yet-thoughtful gift, pick up a copy of your favourite album or gift the download on iTunes. The Winter Songs
compilation gets my vote (check out the title track and “Auld Lang Syne”). [$7.99]
11. Warm Drinks
(think special coffees, hot chocolates, and teas) are a cozy treat that complement gift ideas 7 and 9, brilliantly. The “Perfect Tea Mug” by David’s Tea
is one of the best gifts I’ve ever received; I use it every day. [$19.50]
12. Scented Candles
are a popular choice for hostess gifts as they are a lovely little indulgence. I’ll take one from the new Dirt Candles collection at Body Politic
, please. Specifically, “Bah Humbug” because it makes me smile. [$31.50]
Hooray for parties and presents! Thanks again, Courtney! Love, love these ideas.
