With the holiday party season officially in full-swing, you’ll be visiting many lovely homes of family and friends over the next several weeks. As your favorite neighborhood experts, we wanted save you some time this busy holiday season and share a few of our favorite local shops for hostess gifts!
Let’s face it, The Gypsy Wagon never disappoints. That’s why they remain one of our go-to stores, especially in a pinch. You can always count on them to haveunique and quirky gifts we just can’t get enough of. When it comes to hostess gifts, these candles are top-sellers. They come in three scents in beautiful containers that they say many customers actually reuse. We couldn’t resist these vintage-inspired Santa mugs, reminiscent of those from our childhood. Fill them with treats and your spot on the nice list is secured.
Talulah & HESS is known for having the best variety of on-trend, must-have gifts in the neighborhood. If you’re on the hunt for a handful of hostess gifts, you can probably make this your one-stop-shop. These pretty pouches are absolutely perfect and flying off the shelves. They come in a variety of colors and fun messages that are sure to delight any host. We are suckers for great packaging, so fill that with boozy-inspired candies from Sugarfina and we are sold.
Birchwood is a newcomer to the neighborhood on North Henderson Avenue, bringing a well-curated variety of hip home decor and gift items sourced from independent artists and design houses. We guarantee your hostess will be head-over-heels in love with these bent wood sculpture planters. And if you hurry over, you might be able to still get your hands on these shatterproof wine glasses and decanters with the handy thumb groove. They’ve been one of the store’s top-selling items and would be perfect to pair with a bottle of wine. These fancy fold napkins also caught our eye. They come pre-folded and are sure to impress any guest with little to no effort from the host.
If you need something quick and simple, head on over to the T-Shop in the Lakewood Shopping Center. These cute containers and mugs filled with festive floral and greens are on point! They also have a great collection of ornaments, gift cards, candles and more.
Lastly, The Sample House in the Casa Linda Shopping center rounds out our list, as it’s a tried-and-true mainstay in the neighborhood. If you’re looking for something with more traditional holiday flair, these dish towels are a great option. The Frazier Fir line by Thymes just might be the perfect seasonal scent, and it’s offered in several forms from candles to diffusers, hand soap and more
