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.

Also available in retro and solid.

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.

5- Tina Frey Designs Hans Desk/Vanity Tray, $26.

Handmade by artist Tina Frey, these decorative trays are perfect for desks, vanities and bookcases.

* Holiday tip: It’s good to stock up on a few of these items so that you’re prepared for those last minute invites!

Columbia Forest Products Alexander Girard PLYprint® - Love Heart

I know a major round of holidays just ended and the last thing anyone wants to think about is another holiday. I also know that a lot of people are not too gung-ho with what will soon be coming our way…Valentine’s Day. Sorry to be a Debbie Downer, but the fact is V-day is approaching and whether you are super, semi or hope to be chummy with your love he/she probably wants a small token of appreciation whether you like it or not. So, I thought I would collect some of my favorite Design Public Valentine’s Day-ish gift ideas…

For the guy/gal you feel a super strong attachment to, one of these may symbolize your love. You’d be surprised by how many pieces we have of two people attached to one another…
