Gift Guide for the Effortless Entertainer

Whether you’re attending a myriad of holiday parties this year and need a hostess gift, or are looking for a gift for the entertainer among your family or friends, these finds are beyond fabulous. Every party-giver can use a refreshing addition to their entertaining inventory, so help spruce up her spread with one of these gems she can set on her buffet table all year long.

1. Gilded Rim Stemware

With the gilded rim and pink sheen, what’s not to love about this stemware? Bring a bit of elegance of fun to the festivity with these charming coupes. They’re sure to be a welcome addition to every hostess’s china cabinet.

2. Ice Storm Linen Cocktail Napkins

“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas…” or at least these silver snowflake napkins! Cotton cocktail napkins have never been cuter! She’ll gaze dreamily at the silver snowflakes on these nifty napkins and be proud to set them atop her bar.

3. Kate Spade “Fancy Another” Tray 

Well, we certainly fancy this tray! With its punchy personality, this tray will likely entice her guests to gobble up the displayed canapés and hors d’ oeuvres. And that sounds perfectly delicious.

4. Nespresso® CitiZ & Milk Espresso Machine

And end-of-evening espresso can be a life-saver to guests in attendance at a late-night soirée. Brewing an entire pot of coffee takes the hostess away from her guests, and often times, the majority of the pot remains un-drunk and therefore, wasted.  Help her perk up party-goers individually at the touch of a button with an expertly-brewed cup of coffee from Nespresso. The best part is it’s so simple (read: foolproof) that guests that can easily help themselves!

5. M•A•C “Objects of Affection” Creamsheen Glass and Dazzleglass Lip Set

Every hostess wants to look perfectly polished, despite the constant circling through the crowd with canapés and cocktails! Though it takes a lot of work to entertain “effortlessly,” it’s super simple to help keep her face looking fresh with this collection of glittering glosses from M•A•C.  She can quickly pop a perfect pout prior to popping the cork on that next bottle of bubbly. Cheers to that!
