SMB Holiday Gift Guide {Hostess Gifts}


hostess gifts

All this week we have been featuring the best gifts! Holiday shopping can be stressful and we want to share our favorite gifts for giving, to make it a little easier for you to find those great presents for everyone on your list!

Today we are talking about hostess gifts, but these are also great for teachers, housekeepers, neighbors and the other friends and family you want to find something unique for, but not super expensive.

My new favorite go-to place for food related baskets that are beautiful and delicious is Kneaders Cafe and Bakery. They just opened a new restaurant in North Scottsdale a few months ago by the airport. They also provided food and dessert at our last two events, and we can’t say enough good things about their food and customer service. Plus Kneaders also has an adorable gift shop in their restaurant filled with knick-knacks and seasonal items that you won’t find any other place. So fun!

Another great idea is to make your hostess, teacher or friend a handmade gift (big or small) at Pinspiration! They have a ton of crafts to choose from and all of the materials you need to make them in stock with easy to follow instructions. Sip some wine, craft away and give a gift that will be cherished. Grab some friends and make unique, fun, crafty gifts for everyone on your list.
