Hi, all! If you’re anything like me, you’re sitting in front of the computer right now after a (give or take) 5-day Thanksgiving food and drink bender, slightly delirious from the food coma thinking, “December already?” In my mind, summer was in full swing about 5 minutes ago. Sigh.
To get past my seasonal denial (it’s a thing) I look forward to holiday parties and get-togethers to get me through the colder days ahead. Hey, just because I can’t stand the weather doesn’t mean I can’t embrace the season, right? My December calendar is already looking full and I’m guessing by now, yours may too. I’ve got my outfits covered (thanks to a little inspo from my TME teammates) but now’s the time to stock up on whatever catches your eye, from multi-purpose bags to fun containers and tea towels for wrapping up gifts of food, wine or whatever! ModCloth is a one-stop-shop for ANYONE. We’re talking girlfriends, guys, moms, neighbors, and everything is unique, affordable and most importantly, stuff I’d actually love to receive.
SO – Let’s talk holiday hostess gifting. *Drum roll please…*
Don’t get me wrong, all gifts are great gifts if you’ve taken some time to consider the work/money/time your host or hostess has put into the gathering and picked something special to show your appreciation. But I’m going to play devil’s advocate here – we
might need to leave ugly gift wrap in 2016. Not to mention, non-reusable ANYTHING (plates, lunchboxes, napkins) is slowly but surely becoming a society no-no. Lucky for us gifters, retailers like ModCloth offer endless bags that are pretty enough to present as a gift but functional enough to use again. Mix up your gifting strategy this holiday and try something new – it’s kind of your civic duty. Plus, your hostess is going to love it.
