The holiday season is in full swing, which means lots of parties, gatherings of friends, and gift giving. I never go to someone’s home empty handed, and I don’t like not having a gift if a neighbor stops by with a basket of homemade goodies, so I keep a few gifts on hand this time of year. Some say that candles and wine are boring gifts, but I fully disagree. I love candles, but I don’t always buy them for myself. I also love several bottles of wine over 20 dollars, but usually only stock my bar with wine around the 15 dollar range . So, for me, these gifts are fantastic. Since I like them, I think others do too. Every year, when Bath and Body Works has their 50% off holiday candle sale, I stock up. This year, my favorite scent is Fresh Balsam.
I also stock up on Voluspa candles when they pop up on Gilt. They are my absolute favorite candle and their gift sets make excellent hostess presents.
Earthquake’s Zinfandel is one of my favorite red wines. It is bold, fruity, and chocolaty. Put an ornament around the neck and you are good to go!
Do you keep gifts on hand? If so, what are your go-to-gifts?
