Holiday Gift Guide for the Entertainer

Thank you to La Crema Wines for sponsoring this post.  All opinions are entirely my own, and yes, La Crema is my fave!

We all have that friend that is the ultimate entertainer.
Their parties are effortlessly elegant and always a festively fresh fete.
But, they can also be the hardest person to buy a gift for.
When I put together gifts for the hostess with the mostess, 
I keep it simple and classic with a touch of whimsy...
These are all things I love and use.  
You can give them all, but each gift is wonderful on it's own.
Trust me, if you show up with any of these gifts, you'll be invited back!

The Thymes Frasier Fir Candle just makes me happy.
It smells like the holidays but isn't overbearing and
 the wood wick sounds like a crackling fire as it burns
 (really, it's so fun)
Easy for the host to use right away or enjoy as she unwinds after the party...

Seattle Chocolates are almost too pretty to eat. 
I'm a sucker for great packaging and these festive holiday treats are easy for the hostess to display, 
but more than likely she'll hide them for herself.
Decadent flavors and creative combinations make for a glorious gift.

Stylish personalized gift tags are always a hit.
Great to have on hand while wrapping gifts 
or tie onto a bottle of wine as you run out the door to an event.
And who doesn't like to see their name in print?

Everyone loves something new to serve appetizers on.
makes it a breeze to feed a hungry crowd in minutes and make it look fabulous.

Wine as a hostess gift is a "no brainer". 
La Crema Wines are my favorite to give...
You just can't go wrong.  Outstanding wine for anyone's favorite varietal.

and just in case the La Crema is opened during the party, 
the new Corkcicle Air
not only chills the wine quickly but aerates and allows you to pour without removing.

La Crema has made gift giving easy for everyone on your list.
Not only have I collaborated, on their behalf, with 5 other bloggers on our favorite gifts to give, 
they have created a fabulous array of gift packages available on La Crema.com.

Most people that appreciate great wine also love to eat.
