Lets be honest,  know one really wants to hear about gift guides and shopping right after Christmas BUT how many of us are headed to someones house for NYE? It takes a lot of time and money to  throw that fabulous soiree so what better way to say thanks than with a little somethin somethin for the hostess with the mostess? Here are a few easy and affordable things to come up with last minute.  Take advantage of some after christmas sales and get that gift you wished someone would have picked up for you!

HELLO!  Does everyone realize that the Neiman/Target collab is now 50% off?! I've had my eye on these since day one!  The matching shaker just makes it all the better.  (Thanks Hannah for the heads up!)

I've kind of had a crush on  these fabulous napkins from West Elm for a while now.  You can even have them monogramed!  Grab them while they are on sale!

It is always appropriate to bring some sort of booze to the festivity and for NYE a little bit of Champs is a must.  We served these Sofia Champagne in a can with a straw at our Holiday Party and they were beyond a hit!  Don't be typical, bring something a little bit fun.  These are the life of the party.

Want to DIY something special?  Try monograming with my DIY etching tutorial here.  Think outside the box, anything glass can be etched!

Do you have a go to hostess gift? How will you be spending NYE?


  1. Ooo I love those glasses from target. They would be perfect for the bar cart I am styling! Too bad they don't ship to Canada :(

  2. We are hosting NYE and shopping here was a PAIN. The only gift we will receive is beer I'm sure =)

  3. Thats true, you should always bring a nice gift for the host! I think candles are a cute gift.

  4. Great ideas. I love the sparkly napkins from West Elm. I wish we had a fun party to go to on the 31st! We do have a reservations at a yummy and fun restaurant and I do plan on wearing something sparkly and drinking plenty of bubbly. I hope 2013 is the best year yet for you.

  5. Yay! I hope you got the glasses love! :)
