I’m bummed that I won’t be hosting any holiday parties this year but there just aren’t enough hours in the day between shipping holiday orders for the boutique and preparing for our SoHo pop-up shop in early December. Fortunately, though, I have lots of fun events on my calendar and I’ll be heavily armed with holiday hostess gifts! I tend to stick to items from my boutique since I have them on-hand but here are twenty of my favorite hostess gift ideas from all your favorite retailers!

  1. Hi – would like more details on the pop up shop. I see you posted the dates and times, however, what is the location? And is the pop-up only open weekends and week nights?

    Thanks looking forward to stopping by

    1. Yes, I will be posting a formal invitation closer to the launch date! It’s at 73 Spring Street in SoHo and it will be open 4-8 p.m. on weekdays and 10-6 p.m. on weekends. I hope to see you there!

  2. I love to bring (or send) a tin of Neiman Marcus chocolate chip cookies! I’m a big fan of edible gifts and their cookies are the perfect sweet treat.
