As hard as it is for me to start thinking about buying gifts, it is time to start making my list and checking it twice — just in time for black friday shopping. I have never been a slave to the black friday fiasco, but I do like to plan out my gifts before that day arrives. In case there are a few items I find on major sale I had already planned to purchase, I can scoop them up and save a few $$ . A bargain is a bargain is a bargain.
The gifts I like planning out and buying most are gifts for the hostess. Usually these are going to friends that like to entertain as much as I do. I have put together a gift guide for the hostess of all the necessary items to throw a perfect gathering, including a lot of my ‘go to’ hostess gift items with a few new to me items [how great are the globe lights for an outdoor summer soire].
