If you’re a social butterfly, your holidays are filled with back to back parties.
And you know it’s rude to show up empty handed.
Here are 5 gift ideas for under $30 that you can give to any hostess this holiday season.
1- Stemmarkers by Modern-Twist, $16 for a set of 6.
Help your hostess keep track of what their guests are drinking with these food-safe stemmarkers. Use a ballpoint pen to scribble your name, initials or the type of wine you’re drinking. These can also be used as napkin rings.
2- Normann Copenhagen Rocking Glasses, $25 for a set of 4.
The Rocking Glass features a curved bottom that allows it to rock without spilling over. Perfect for serving drinks and/or desserts. They also make really cool votive holders.
3- Normann Copenhagen True Feelings Tea Light Candle Holder, $26 for set of 2.
Give this gift as a decorative accent and let the cozy atmosphere radiate.
4- FUZ Wine Pocket, $25.
You can’t go wrong with the gift of wine. But you can certainly take it up a notch by presenting your bottle in this wine pocket.
Handmade by artist Tina Frey, these decorative trays are perfect for desks, vanities and bookcases.
