Reindeer Place Cards
Glitter Reindeer Place Card: Aren’t these so cute? Not only are they super chic for place cards but also fabulous for a sparkly food card for labels or even cocktail bar signs (cranberry sangria, anyone?). There are lots of ways to use these cute little reindeers!
Deer Cutting Board
Deer Cutting Board: I’m always on the hunt for a perfect holiday gift for several guys in my family who love to have friends over but aren’t necessarily into the glitz and glitter. This deer cutting board is absolutely the perfect gift! It’s the perfect size for cheese and crackers.
Reindeer Cookie Tray for Christmas
Reindeer Cookie Tray: One of the things I’m most excited about with my daughter is when she’s old enough to leave cookies and milk for Santa. Wouldn’t this tray be perfect? I love the cute little reindeer. This is the perfect hostess gift for a family with kids!
 Merry Christmas Y'all Towel
Merry Christmas Y’all Towel: Living in Nashville, TN, I must say that anything with y’all or cowboy boots on it is a must-have! Cute hand towels are an easy and quick hostess gift that anyone would love for adding a little holiday pep to the kitchen or a powder room.
Christmas Santa Pitcher
Small Santa Pitcher: This is too cute for serving up hot cocoa, eggnog, milk for “milk and cookies” – you name it! I love the cute little Santa nose!
Striped Ramekins
Striped Ramekins: I love a hostess gift that people can customize! You can write different types of cheeses on these ramekins or even names to use as placecards. Lots of ideas for such a cute little gift!
Christmas Santa Dip Cup
Santa Dip Cup: Everyone loves little cups to hold peppermints, mixed nuts, marshmallows for hot cocoa – you name it! These are just too cute!
