Okay so my first gift idea is super simple and easy to grab on your way to a holiday party – ornaments! You can personalize it or keep it general like the ones I have pictured below. This little angel is so cute to hang on a Christmas tree and pairing it with the snowflake adds a little Christmas sparkle!

This next gift idea is ideal if you are going to a house party – gifting a holiday pillow will fill a home with joyful holiday spirit! I especially love this advent pillow – it’s so fun to mark the date especially as Christmas gets closer and closer!

This gift is perfect if you are spending time with siblings or cousins. I always enjoy playing games and this one “Holiday Quiz” is great for this time of year! Pair it with a nice candle like this one from Bendel’s and you are set!

Now this gift is perfect for someone who LOVES to pamper themselves! Flowerbomb is one of the most popular scents with key notes of jasmine, orange blossom, and patchouli. This gift set includes two little Flowerbomb perfumes and two Flowerbomb body lotions. You can pair it with an amazing teeth whitening kit from Smile Brilliant.

Now I absolutely LOVE this gift idea! This beanie is super cute and has the cutest little saying on it – not in the mood to comb my hair ! You can pair it with a cute sweater this like Calvin Klein one pictured below.

This gift is great if you have a family member or friend who is super into fitness and working out! I am completely obsessed with my own Fitbit and I think it’s an amazing, thoughtful gift! Plus, it’s on sale!

Another one of my favorite ideas includes FOOD! If you are going to a house party these ideas are perfect to bring along with you. If you don’t have time to make something, you can simply pick up a box of Godiva dark chocolate assortments and some holiday m&m’s to go with it. If you do have time to make something, I’ve attached three recipes below that are perfect to bring along with you to a party! The first one is for the Rudolph Brownies, the second one is for the Grinch Kabobs, and the third is for the Santa Crunch Popcorn!
