Top Five Hostess Gifts Under $25

I'm sure there are parties a plenty that you will attend this holiday season!  It is always a great show of thanks to bring a small gift for the host/hostess.  With so many gifts to purchase for family and friends it's best to keep a minimum price in mind.  I like to keep my own limit at $25.  I've scoured my favorite stores and sites and found five great hostess gifts under $25!

A.  Williams-Sonoma Essential Oils Collection Boxed Candle, Orange Spice
This is a great gift for a candle loving hostess.  Orange spice is a timeless winter fragrance that makes any home feel warm and welcoming!

B.  Mini Mighty Marshmallows - Crate & Barrel
A long time ago I used to work at Crate & Barrel and there was nothing better than working during the holiday season and having a chance to taste all the delicious confections they sold.  These mini marshmallows are a perfect accessory to a nice hot cup of hot cocoa.  Any hostess who loves chocolate will think this gift is super sweet!

C.  Antique Silver Salt & Pepper Shakers - Pottery Barn
Who doesn't ever need a nice, fancy S&P shaker?  These antiqued silver shakers add a touch of elegance and whimsy to their standard glass counterparts usually found in diners. Keep these in mind for a hostess who loves to entertain and can appreciate the whimsy yet simplicity of this gift.

D.  Bath Snowballs - DIY from Martha Stewart
When in doubt DIY!  These bath snowballs are a perfect gift for the hostess who loves to end a hectic day with a warm and relaxing bath.  This easy to make project consists of just four ingredients, but does take up to four days to complete (something about drying time).You can find instructions here on how to make them.

E.  Footzy Rolls
Whatever Miss Beckham!  Every gal needs a cute pair o' flats in times of need.  There is no better time for a hostess to slip into a pair of cute flats than when she's so over her come hither heels but  the party is still rockin'.  These Footzy Rolls are A-DOR-A-BLE and flirty at the same time.  They come in a variety of colors and textures and priced starting at just under $20 they are a best bet.  I hear Oprah likes 'em too!

If you want to give a gift a bit more on the sweet & homemade side, don't forget to check back in from Dec. 8th - 23rd as I roll out my 12 Days of Cupcakes series where I share some favorite holiday cupcakes, recipes and tips!
