Fashion Magazine 2012 Holiday Guide

Christmas is often the most stressful time of the year for many people. Even more so for those who decide to host the cocktail parties, the dinners, and the new years bashes (hats off to them). Because it’s a party faux pas to show up empty handed—especially when someone has spent hours preparing—we’ve thought of creative Christmas hostess gift ideas for those who bare the grunt of the work.

The bonus of shopping for a friend or family member who is constantly having people over, is that a gift that works as a thank you for planning a holiday party is also useful to their everyday life. Give them gifts that will help them relax after the fete dies down like a red wine and chocolate set or a scented candle that will make the rest of post-party worries melt away. From Cooking with Siracha to the now-classic Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty coffee table book, these items will look beautiful in a new apartment or well lived in home.

These Christmas gift ideas will not only show your appreciation for the hard work that the hostess puts in to making people come together and enjoy the company of others, but will also add something to their life. It’s a win-win situation if you’re thanking someone and showing how much you care at once. Shop our selection of gift ideas for the hostesses in your life and show how much you really like their parties.
