I simply adore selecting and giving presents. So it was great fun to put together a holiday gift guide for hostesses (and hosts) in time for the holiday season to kick off with Thanksgiving. I focused on gifts under $100, many under $50. If you're looking for other price points just tell me and I'll see what I can dig up. And, if you have any other areas you're interested in, tell me in the comments. I'll probably add an update in December.
