Wine glasses and wine charms

Does your host entertain often? If so, get them a set of wine glasses and wine charms. Wine charms wrap around the glasses stem, making it easy for guests to distinguish which drink belongs to them.


During the colder months, most people like to start their day with a nice hot cup of tea. Keep your host warm with a new tea set or a tin of holiday tea bags.

Baked goods

Your gift doesn’t have to be store-bought to be special. If you enjoy baking, whip of a batch of your favorite cookies and store it in a festive gift bag. You can even add a more personal touch by including a recipe card.
