Hostess Gifts Made Easy

For some reason as soon as Halloween arrives, we all start thinking about Christmas. I know I am furiously thinking about Christmas decor right now. I mean, how great would it be to have my house all decorated the day after Thanksgiving!

One of the biggest challenges during the holiday season are hostess gifts. I always have the intention of giving a really thoughtful hostess gift but it never quite seems to happen. I am usually running down the stairs, buttoning my blouse and trying to put my shoes on and yelling at my husband to grab a bottle of wine. But this year it’s going to be different. I am going to order my hostess gifts this week.

These black and white coasters are from Shutterfly. I ordered them years ago and I just love them. I went on their website today and was so happy to see they have so many adorable options for coasters. They even have a new vintage design.

And no, this is not an ad and it is not an affiliate post. It’s just me, sharing a really cool idea for hostess (or even teachers) gifts.  That’s all.

Here are some of the coasters I ordered for Christmas one year. I ordered sets of all of the cousins in our family and gave each of my brothers and sisters and parents a set.

9EF9C910-4C78-4D2F-BC8D-80BE13EAE99FI made a list of the recurring parties that I know we will be going to this year as well as any other events I might need a gift. Then I went to the Instagram account of the recipient and copied four photos that I knew would look great on the coasters. Then I uploaded them online to Shutterfly and used the discount code SPOOKY or LUCKYME for a 40% discount. Normal cost is $19.99 so the discounted cost was only $11.99. How great is that? The discount expires on Wednesday, November 1st.

Order them today and just think how prepared you will be for the holidays!

  1. Hey, you’re missing the other family in your photo! Perhaps it has something to do with the ‘kini? I love mine and it was a great use of past Christmas cards!!!
