Jingling all the way to a holiday party this season and realize at the last minute you should’ve grabbed a hostess gift? No need to stress - we’ve got you covered. For many, the Christmas and New Year’s season often comes with a full calendar of parties and dinners to attend (some that you might look forward to more than others). We’ve got a couple of ideas that will help you never show up empty-handed to this year’s holiday gatherings:
Few things say Christmas-time like some stunning paperwhite bulbs growing in the kitchen window. They’re a lovely, low maintenance addition to your hostess’s home and make a terrific last-minute gift. All you have to do is swing by Charleston Flower Market on your way to the party and grab two or three. You can even share our blog on how to force bulbs like paperwhites if your friend isn’t familiar with growing them!
Hosting a holiday party is fun and all, but nothing compares to cozying up by the fire with a delicious cup of coffee or hot chocolate. If you’re on your way to a holiday event and realize you need a gift for your hostess, stop by your local grocery store or coffee shop and pick up a bag of local coffee beans or gourmet hot chocolate. Pair it with some fresh biscotti or maybe some macarons from Macaroon Boutique downtown. Your hostess will be counting down until her guests leave and she can sit back with a cup of coffee and a sweet snack.
Holiday cocktail kit
What’s the perfect way to wrap up a night of holiday celebration? A christmas cocktail, of course. Let these adorable mason jar cocktail kits inspire you to pick up the ingredients to one of these delicious Christmas mixed drinks. Start with some of those adorable mini liquor bottles by the checkout at the gas station or liquor store and go from there! Throw them together in a cute cocktail glass or a festive bag, and voila, you’ve got a delightful hostess gift. Cheers!
Hanging holiday bits and bobbles
Let’s be real - a lot of us probably already have too many ornaments. However, we all love unwrapping a beautiful new Christmas ornament that goes perfectly with this year's decor scheme. We’re stocked up on the cutest hanging bits and bobbles to pick from that your hostess is sure to love. We even have some adorable wrapping paper, so you can get everything you need in one stop on your way to the party.
A beautiful bouquet
We’re always a fan of any occasion to give or gift a lovely bouquet, and a Christmas dinner or get-together is no exception. Did you know you don’t need to call ahead or order beforehand to get a beautiful floral arrangement from Charleston Flower Market? You can simply stop in and talk to one of our talented florists, and they’ll put together the perfect bouquet from the seasonal blooms we’ve got in the shop.
Curated Gift Box
If you really just want a “grab and go” gift that your hostess will appreciate, just shop our curated gift box collection! We’ve got a box for every type of personality, but this Charleston Girl box is one of our favorites for holiday party gift-giving.
