Let's be real. The holidays can get a bit crazy full of holiday parties and sometimes it can be awkward knowing whether or not a small gift is appropriate or expected. I think it's very helpful to have some generic hostess gifts planned out in advance, so regardless of the event, you're ready to party with class.

Copper Mugs

Few things are as trendy as copper and few drinks as posh as the Moscow Mule. These  mugs can be festive (also great for serving eggnog!) and are a great gift for the host of the party. I think this gift is a particularly safe bet, especially if you don't know the host that well, go with a classic guaranteed to win!

Peppermint bath salts

This is such a fun, DIY gift for the hostess. This is especially good if the host is your close girlfriend, your mum or your sister. All you need is epsom salt, baking soda,  peppermint essential oils and a touch of  pink or red dye (only if you want, some people prefer all natural). Mix them together, and put it in smaller  mason jars. It's so cute, and really is luxurious for the host to wind down with after a holiday party.

Reindeer Beer!

Ok, this one is too cheesy but SO fun. Especially great if the host is a male or if you were asked to bring the beers. All you need is beer and some basic craft supplies like  wiggly eyes and  glue to make holiday magic ;)

Birchwood candle holders

This is another sweet DIY, perfect of course for a female hostess. Wrap your  birch bark around a larger  mason jar, insert a  votive candle and spruce it up with a  Christmas pick and you're done. I think these would be very cool for a Christmas party where you needs lots of light! Whatever you do this holiday season, be prepared to give and to thank all those wonderful people hosting these Christmas bashes! Have a Merry Time!
