Tis the season dear readers! Between now and January 2nd you’ll likely be invited to 92 separate parties or get togethers and you can’t show up empty handed to a single one! With that in mind, I’ve included my favorite DIY Hostess gifts for your reviewing pleasure. I’d suggest you choose one of these items, set aside a few hours in the near future, and make a bunch at once… cute packaging and all. Then when it’s party time you’ll only have to focus on what to wear and which daring shade of lipstick looks ‘holiday appropriate’!
