2013 Gift Guide For the Hostess

Welcome to day 1 of my gift guides!  I love to put these gift guides together and share the things I think are cool.  None of these are sponsored and they are truly things that I would love to give or get!

Amazon is a great resource for gift shopping for the holidays and any time of the year.  Did you know that you can choose a charity to give back to while you shop?  I’ve chosen to link up my Amazon account with Operation Shower to help them raise money that they need to keep the organization going.  Simply head to Amazon Smile and search for Operation Shower (based in St. Louis, MO) and then shop as usual.

I have not read Great Balls of Cheese (#11) yet but if the cover is any indication of the cheese genius I will find inside, I think this would be a great gift.  It was also recommended to me by Erin and she’s legit.  I was sent a copy of The Lemonade Cookbook (#12) for review and LOVE it!  The recipes are easy and sounds delicious.  And it is full of specialty lemonade recipes.  I highly recommend it!  Lastly, the Trophy Cupcakes and Parties book (#13) is pure eye candy.  My friends Jenny and Jenn both helped out on the book and they are extremely talented.  So proud of them!

Gift Guide Hostess Gifts

All this week I will be sharing my 2012 Gift Guides to help you with all of your holiday shopping.  These are mostly things I either have and love or would love to get.  Some of them I have tried, some I haven’t.  None of these are sponsored.  I take my gift giving very seriously and I hope I can help you out a little with some good ideas.  First up, go check out the Hostess Gifts Guide I put together for A Fabulous Fete while she was off on a tropical vacation.  What are your go-to hostess gifts?
