Halfstack Gift Guide: For the Hostest with the Mostest

Saturday, December 13, 2014 HALFSTACK MAGAZINE

It's the holidays readers! Woah, how did December arrive so quickly? I'm not sure about you, but I always need a little extra help when it comes to holiday gift giving. I like being thoughtful. I don't think that gifts have to be super expensive to make an impact. Rather, I like to gift things that are meaningful or at least make sense for the recipient. So, over the next 10 days you will get a few more roundups that are fun and hopefully helpful! This week we have gifts for the "hostest with the mostest". 

Here is a roundup of some great gift ideas that would be perfect for the hostest. Items that are great for the home, perfect for someone who enjoys having others at their home and great for entertaining.

  1. Soap & Paper Factory Roland Pine Soy Candle & Soap Set: This full-size pure soy candle sets the festive mood, while a bar of shea butter soap offers luxurious cleansing that leaves your skin softly scented of Siberian Fir, pine and Cedar wood. This handmade product is the perfect pampering gift for the special someone, and even for you. One would think pine would be an overwhelming smell, but it's pleasant and definitely leaves the home smelling like the holidays! ($36) 
  2. Handmade Beauty Box is a subscription service that makes Do-It-Yourself beauty and spa products simple for everyone. For $29.99 a month (shipping included!), Handmade Beauty Box delivers an all-inclusive set of ingredients and instructions to make the most popular DIY project . It’s a completely new, experiential DIY beauty box that delivers quality beauty and spa projects monthly to your door so you can make your own toiletries and makeup. Each box has all-inclusive sets of ingredients, instructions and packaging to make multiples of fun products like lipstick, soap, lotion, even nail polish!
  3. PADDYWAX candle sets & room spray (blood orange room spray, white spruce woodland collection, vanilla bean and cinnamon are by far my favorite fragrances for this holiday season). These home fragrance artisan products are made in the USA and are a great addition to your home. Candles and fragrance are a great way to add warmth to a home. They smell great and are soothing. What better way to relax?
  4. Lady Primrose hand towels are another great addition to the home. Add a whimsical touch to your bathroom, guest room or kitchen with Lady Primrose's guest hand towels embroidered with four unique  charms. ($14 each)
  5. SOL Republic Punk Speakers are bright small packages that pack a punch. They are compact and easy to travel with and would be perfect for the kitchen. Who doesn't love listening to tunes while cleaning or cooking? These speakers come in a rainbow of colors. PUNK is water, shock and dust resistant, so it’s tough enough to survive in your bag, rugged enough for a mountain bike trek, and loud enough to be heard over crashing waves. And with eight hours of battery life (50% more than the other speakers its size).
  6. Lady Primrose dinner light candles add a luxurious touch to your dinner. This set is presented in a silver signature gift box and products are made in the USA. This is a simple buy, but helps add a touch of elegance to someone's evening. You can pick these up at a local Neiman Marcus!
Happy Holidays Readers!
