Welcome to our holiday gift guide!  We want your holiday shopping to be stress free and fun this year, so we’re bringing you the perfect gifts for just about everyone on your gift list.  In the next couple weeks we’ll be giving you great ideas for the six different personalities of your friends: The Domestic Goddess, The Mom or Mom to be, The Diva, The Jet Setter, The Workaholic, and The Quirky Girl.

First up: The Perpetual Hostess

This domestic goddess always has the right baked good or casserole for every occasion.  She’s hosts all the parties, reads Emily Post for fun, always looks put together, and can whip up a mean batch of cupcakes from scratch.  Think Bree Van de Camp from Desperate Housewives or Monica from Friends.

Perfect gifts for your perpetual hostess friends are gifts that let her and her home shine.  We love these quirky plates from CB2, which are perfect for her next cocktail party, Oliver Appetizer Plates (bottom right). For something with more shimmer, try these pretty, Glitter Tart Servers (not pictured).  To make sure her face is fresh, Our New Limited Edition Beautiful Expressions Kabuki Set (bottom left) is perfect for her pre-party makeup routine, and since she’s always doing dishes and prepping for parties, her hands will need some extra TLC with our One Hand Helps the Other Intensive Hand Cream (top left).  Any hostess can use a little bit of quirk in her kitchen with this cute Turkey Timer (middle) and just incase her main course is still in the oven when the guests start arriving, a Hostess Apron (top right) will make sure she’s looking chic while she’s cooking.
