Your mom probably told you to never arrive at a party empty-handed, but in case you needed a reminder, showing up to someone’s home for a holiday party with gift in hand will always go a long way. Depending on the type of party you’re attending and who is hosting, you’ll want to bring along a little something special for them. Below, check out 8 ideas of gifts to give at your upcoming holiday events:
Before that Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve champagne toast, pop a packet of these cotton candy glitter bombs into your flute and watch the magic happen. Your bubbly will be transformed into a shimmering concoction perfect for a festive drink. This particular flavor is perfect for that holiday brunch mimosa, but the gold shimmer bombs would be great for an evening toast.
Candles always make for wonderful gifts, but this collaboration between Liis and ARC Objects takes it to a new level through this elegant design that’s both candle and art object. Featuring Liis’ popular Bo scent (which you can also wear as a perfume) in a hand-carved Spanish porcelain vessel, this gift can be used to warm up the scent of any room, and the vessel can be reused as a decorative bowl once the wax has melted away, too.
Spice up a cooking lover’s life with these essential spices from The Spice House. This gift set features 8 must-haves for any home chef and will help them up their cooking game, no matter their skill level.
Now these are the chicest toilette drops I’ve ever seen! Cheekily named Merde No.2 (merde being a French curse word for, well, No. 2) a few drops of this citrus scent will freshen up any restroom. The bottle design is so chic that anyone would be happy to leave this displayed atop their toilette.
For that friend who always has an Instagram-worthy bar cart display—and the craft cocktail-making expertise to match—they’ll adore this elegant tequila bottle form 1800. Encased in a beautiful crystal bottle, the Cristalino Tequila is aged in oak barrels and combines the complex taste of an añejo tequila with the smooth drinkability of a silver, resulting in a truly unique spirit.
This two-in-one essential oil diffuser and humidifier is a must-have for any wellness lover. The Halo is quiet and customizable, allowing the user to fill the room with therapeutic scents and refreshing air that promotes a peaceful sleep as well as cell regeneration. Round out the gift with an essential oils set as well!
Cookies are integral to holiday sweet treats, and they don’t get more epic than these incredibly delicious ones from the Halfsies Cookie Company. Perfected to be crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, these cookies feature flavors including Nutella, birthday cake, apples, and so on. Order a dozen of the recipient’s favorite flavor, or gift a little bit of everything with a sampler pack.
Seasonal gifts can be a bit tricky (you can’t wear a red and green snowflake-print pajama set past New Year’s, for example) but a cashmere scarf is a timeless piece that is seasonally appropriate but also a classic accessory beyond the holidays.
