Christmas is my favorite! One of my very favorite parts of the Christmas season is trying to find the perfect gifts for all the special people in my life! This is not always a simple task, however. To try and make it easier for you, I've compiled a small series of gift guides that I'll be sharing with you over the next couple weeks. Today we're focusing on the hostesses in our lives. These gifts are meant to be easy to take with you to holiday parties and gatherings as a little thank you for your friend for hosting the celebration.
Amy Heitman - Amy designs beautifully illustrated cards for all occasions! Cards are always something that it's hard to splurge on without a specific event in mind, but they are SO helpful to have around. Why not help your favorite hostess out by gifting her a few cards that she can have on hand and always be prepared? (She might even love them enough to use them as wall art, like I have.) Use code PAPERSWALLOW15 to get 15% of your purchase through December 10th!
Good Word Candles - Give your friend the gift of a divine smelling candle that will add the perfect cozy touch to her next celebration. These soy candles are handmade in small batches in Texas, their packaging is beautiful and they really do smell amazing. I know many people would be thrilled have one of these candles in their home! Use code PAPERSWALLOW20 for 20% off of anything in the shop until December 15th.
Paper Street Press - Why not give your friend the gift of taking part of the work out of planning their next celebration? Give them the gift of a beautiful, custom return address stamp! These also make perfect gifts for any of the brides-to-be you know. Use code HONOR20 for 20% off your purchase through December 31st.
North Summit Studio - This shop is a one-man studio in Long Island, NY that both admires the craft and is dedicated to provide products that last. Though the shop also does custom work, their online shop lists items that are perfect gifts for the hostesses in your life - like their beautiful, diamond-shaped wooden cutting board, rolling pins, or wooden spoons. Use code PSE10 for 10% off any purchase through December 11th.
A Drop in the Water - Do you have a friend who loves watercolors and whimsical calligraphy? Then you should take a peek at this shop! I know of several people who would be the perfect candidates for the calligraphy "lattes + top knots" mug, but the shop also sells lovely watercolor prints. Give your friend their new favorite mug or art piece! Use code PAPERSWALLOW10 for 10% off any purchase of an item priced $15 or more.
Honey and the Hive - This shop is full of beautifully illustrated gifts that would be perfect for the hostesses you know. Whether it's a notebook where they can keep their ideas for their next party, an encouraging mug that can make their days just a little better, or even a whimsical art print for their walls. Use code PAPERSWALLOW25 for 25% off any purchase through December 11th.
Pepper Sprouts - I love the constellation wooden coaster that this shop sells! They also sell some other adorable coasters, some cute wooden pins that would make great stocking stuffers, constellation wall art, and other woodcut items that are sure to make any hostess' day more bright! Use code PAPER10 for 10% off any purchase through December 31st.
Oh, Little Rabbit - These organic, hand printed tea towels and napkins are sure to make any hostess smile with their bright colors and whimsical designs! There is a design for every style of hostess in their shop, and most of the designs come in multiple colors (if not, I'm sure you could contact the shop owners to talk to them about your specific color needs!) What hostess doesn't need a cute new tea towel to make her kitchen just a little more cheery? Use code paperswallow for 15% off any purchase through December 15th.
Happy Mail Cards - Postcards make it so easy to send a cheerful note to one of your friends. Give your friend the gift of some beautifully printed postcards that they can have ready to send whenever they feel the whim! Postcards are great for busy people who still love to be thoughtful but feel too much pressure when they're faced with filling out an entire card, and these would be so bright and cheerful in the recipients mailbox! Use code PSEHAPPY15 for 15% off any purchase through December 26th.
