Decor 2 Die 4- Last minute holiday hostess gifts.

Here we are just 2 days away from the big day itself! Christmas day!

If you are anything like us, you have been shopping up to the last minute, and you still have some to do...

Well, don't feel too bad about it, even Santa waits till the last minute to drop off his gifts!!

But you never want to show up at a holiday party empty handed, so here are some last minute ideas for your host & hostess this holiday season.

3 reasons why pretty flowers are the perfect gift...

1. One size fits all.

2. Everyone (mostly) loves them.
3. Once the holiday is over only the memory of your thoughtfulness lingers....

(As opposed to that wool Reindeer Sweater that Aunt Maggie knitted and takes up WAY too much of your closet space... Thanks Aunt Mags!)

Another great gift for the last minute shopper... BOOZE!

Grab a bottle of Wine or really nice Scotch
(Macallan 18)
Skip the errr, festive bottle stoppers, and instead add a nice pair of wine or highball glasses!

Don't even have time to go grab pretty glasses? Take the lesson now and get to know yourself! Order these cute labels for next year, so you are never caught without a personal touch added to your last minute gift!!

Trust us, order them NOW and put them in your desk drawer! You can thank us at the end of 2011!!

If you live anywhere within a 15-20 minute radius of an Anthropologie store, you have no excuse for yourself...

Honestly this store is like the "hostess gift" shopping equivalent to great sex.... If you can't find something here to make you happy, then you are just being too picky!
Give this pretty Capri candle as a gift and watch the scene unfold sort of like this...

"Thank you for inviting me over for Christmas dinner Mrs. My-New-Boyfriends mom...
Here is a beautiful silver candle that smells like Heaven...
Well, yes I am a pretty special girl, thank you for noticing... You do have a lucky son and yes your right, I AM good enough for him."

If it comes down to it... A box of chocolate will work in the pinch...

Really you could take the time to make a homemade sweet gift for your sweet friend, but when your outta time, your outta time!

Just make sure that the box is pretty and the chocolate is GOOOOOD!

We wish you a Merry Christmas filled with lots of love and goodness! Remember that for as much crap as we talk over here at T-W-H the very BEST gift you can give or get is love, loyalty, laughter and of course... Lanvin.

XOXO- Things-We-Heart
