Today’s Tech Savvy Guest is the amazing Audrey McClellan. Perhaps you know Audrey from MomGenerations and her amazing fashion tips for moms (like how to make sweatpants fashionable, what to wear with legwarmers, or what to look for in jeans) or as the mom marketing manager of Totsy, a new children’s private sale site that offers incredible brand name merchandise at deep discounts. Think Paul Frank, Frenchy Baby Organics, Cariboo, Joe’s Jeans, Nest Childrenswear, and more!
With Christmas just a couple days away and New Years soon after, chances are you will either be hosting a gathering or the guest at one very soon. Today the always fashionable Audrey shares her favorite hostess gifts for the holiday season that won’t break the bank.
‘Tis the season… Holiday parties are upon us! I love this time of year. People open their homes and their businesses and invite you in for the most lovely parties. Each Holiday season we probably go to about dozen parties… each host/hostess is always so gracious. They welcome you in with open arms and capture the essence of the holiday festiveness through decorations and cheer.
It’s always proper to bring a gift for the host/hostess… after all, he/she is opening their home and/or business to you. Sometimes it becomes a little difficult to find the “perfect” gift – especially if you don’t know the host/hostess personally.
Here are my TOP 5 Host/Hostess Gifts for the Holidays:
1. Martha Stewart’s LIVING Magazine
The most famous hostess of all… Ms. Martha Stewart! I love this idea because the gift keeps being given all year-long, and for a fabulous price – $28. The content and ideas in this magazine are exceptional.
I love the personalized touch of this gift. There’s nothing like a beautiful scented candle… but to see your name on it, it truly just gives it such a sense of elegance. I ordered one of these for one of our neighbor’s (who we don’t know that well) and they loved it!
Festive and in true Holiday spirit! Decorations are always a fabulous gift to bring… especially to a Holiday party and something that can be re-used again next year. I love this set because it really does work together beautifully.
4. Family Character Magnets
Someone gave these to us as a gift last year and we just couldn’t get enough of them! So clever! So unique! And… I promise, an unforgettable gift to give someone. I love it because it really does show that you took the time and thought about the “perfect gift. Not to mention… they’re just FUN (and easy to order)!
5. Wind Chimes
Every year my parents host a huge Christmas Eve gathering with family and friends. About 5 years ago, someone brought them a Wind Chime as a “thank for you hosting” gift. There has been nothing more soothing and more comforting than the sounds of that Wind Chime throughout the year. It’s different… and oh-so-delightful!
I was awestruck when meeting Audrey at BlogHer because I stalk her MomGenerations blog for her fabulous fashion advice. I am so thrilled to have shared her wisdom with my readers but have to admit that I also received a $15 Totsy credit for this guest post on behalf of RoleMommy.
