My mom always says never to show up to a party empty handed. What she meant was, one should always bring food when showing up to a party. But why not step it up a notch and bring the hostess gifts that they will use again and again? Now, I know you don’t have all day to work on this – you have a party to get ready for, after all! Check out my five favorite holiday hostess gifts that you can make in 20 minutes or less!
Wine Totes 3 Ways: So, the cool thing about making these wine totes as hostess gifts is that you can do just about anything with a blank wine tote and who doesn’t love to bring a little extra wine to a party? Because the possibilities are endless, I decided to show you three ideas to do these wine totes up!
Burlap Mason Jar Candle Holders: These are stupidly simple to make and soooo pretty! I did mine two ways, one with the “Oh Deer” and the other with a personalized statement. Who needs a thank you card when the gift itself says it all?
Special Recipe Tea Towels: This one is extra special to me because my grandma was an exceptional cook and baker and her recipes are deeply ingrained in the traditions of my family. This tea towel takes a scanned picture of your special recipe and turns it into a handy towel. Perfect for family holiday gatherings.
Mason Jar Potpourri: This gift is kind of a crafting two-fer, and by that I mean you get to craft it and the hostess gets to make the potpourri themselves! This potpourri smells soooo yummy when you make it plus its just gorgeous to look at!
Rustic Holiday Sign: Chalk and wood slices, what more could one want? The great thing about this one, besides how quick it is to make, is that the hostess can keep writing a different message for each season!
