Gift Guide

Best Hostess Gift Guide

Happy Holidays everyone! I asked you guys what gift guides you wanted me to create first & you all overwhelming said “Hostess!” I am so excited to share my favorite hostess gifts in a special guide at all price points.

My personal favorite hostess gift happens to be my gorgeous mercury glass holiday candle I created with Hazel Candle Co. The price is hard to beat (1 candle for $26 and 2 for under $50!) and they are so gorgeous. The scent is called ‘White Birch’ which is a wonderful holiday scent with hints of Cypress, Eucalyptus, Balsam, Tonka & Cedarwood –making it smell like a Christmas tree. Gift wrap included! It sold out within the first 12 hours on launch day! So we have a limited restock currently of pre-sale candles available that will be sent to you by Thanksgiving.

  1. Hi Kristy!

    What a joy its been for me to follow you! Ive been homebound for a coUple months Due to some health issues and its been interesting to say the least since ive always worked! My morning routine (i still wake up very early) is to grab my coffee and check out my favorite Blogger…Kristy! You certainly remind me of my family since my husband is helpful like Jeff is ( he DOESN’T cook though) and our One and only DAUGHTERS name is Kristy! I love having a daughter and was only able to have her, so i know how BLESSED we Both are with Your Emma and my Kristy.
    I’ll be ordering a couple things you posted here, so thank you for your hard work and emma’s with finding such great things. Thank you for sharing your sweet maggie too! We don’t have A dog at the moment. Our 2 lb tiny maltese Gave us so much joy and lived a happy Long life after All her teeth were removed at About Her middle age. Her Tongue eventually hung out after her 3rd final removal of Her teeth, but honestly she was even more adorable with a tad of pink tongue showing. I’d love a king charles when we are ready for anther doG. Maggie is so sweet and has the cutest face.
    Sorry, for the LENGTHLY note!
    Thank you kristy and your sweet family! You make my days happy And interesting!
