Luxe & Lovely Entertaining Gifts

Briana and I have been putting together a list of entertaining gift ideas for your favorite hostess with the mostest, girlfriend who loves a good cocktail, or person who you just don't know what to get (they probably don't have any of these!).  I love the idea of getting your hostess or friend a something a little bit glamorous, but know your audience.  If you're going to a cookie swap and the hostess' style is shabby chic, a beautiful set of high quality dish towels or copper cookie cutters might be the way to go.  Another great gift idea for your hostess if you don't know her that well or if you are a little tight on funds is to buy a beautiful poinsettia, amaryllis bloom, or paper whites.  All of these plants are available during the Christmas season.  I would buy one in bloom rather than a bulb kit (you hostess may not want one more task on her plate).  These plants should be $15 or less.  Otherwise, here are some luxe and lovely entertaining gifts for all your parties!
