Hostess gifts she will love.

The holidays are such a great time to get together with friends and family. And while its great to get a gift to thank your hostess wouldn’t it be nice to forgo another flower arrangement and give her something she will  really love? I have compiled a few of my favorite gifts that I would love to give or receive as a hostess gift. Gifts this great will soon be followed with another party invitation.

These candles smells so great! I love the mini size a perfect way to add great scents anywhere in your place.
