Holiday Hostess Gifts with World Market + A Giveaway!

The Holidays are upon us can you believe that Thanksgiving is just two days away! Today I'm excited to share with you a Holiday Hostess guide in partnership with one of my favorite stores World Market! World Market is easily one of my faves because of their wide range of selection anything from food to home decor and furniture. I'm always instantly inspired when I walk into the store, and can easily always find a few things "I just can't live without."

I was just in there a couple days ago and I'm loving all their new Christmas ornaments, table decor and even some new furniture pieces that I've got my eye on for the new casa!

Today, I put together a little holiday hostess gift guide. I think hostess gifts are such a nice gesture and a nice way to say thank you to any host. I think they are a lost art form actually and such a small gesture can go along way in making your host feel special. With the holidays quickly upon us I think it's so important to make these gestures for all those holiday parties, events and dinners you'll be attending.

We're spending Thanksgiving with some friends again this year, and I always like to bring our host something. They've opened their home to us, cooked an amazing meal and it's something I can easily do to say Thank you for all of that. Plus, I really love giving gifts, shopping for them and packaging them just so.

Hostess gifts don't have to be grand or expensive. You can do something small, write a little note with it and present it to your hosts. I personally don't like to bring flowers as a hostess gift. They are so pretty, but more often than not you give them to your host and she lays them down to finish preparing the meal or say hello to other guests and before the night is over they are wilted and dead. I like to give tangible gifts that they can open later and enjoy.

Today I've rounded up some lovely finds with the help of World Market that range in pricing from $2.50-$30. Perfect for any budget, c'mon let's see what I've found.
