Happy Friday Eve to you all! Tomorrow is the first Jeans Day of December!
Now that it’s December and the holiday festivities are officially in full swing, it seems like there will be nothing but parties and lunches and get-togethers for the next month. And since you can’t show up empty handed to a party/lunch/get-together, and figuring out something useful and unique is hard, I’ve compiled a handy list of perfect holiday party host gifts!
<– not anyone at our office holiday party…
1. Tylenol & Advil
Tis the season of spirited libations and…hangovers! Weekend, weekday, midday – you name it! Bring your party host a bottle of each. Something a host can truly use, and you too when you inevitably attend back-to-back events and need a cure. Everyone wins!
2. A Bushel of Veggies
You know when you get to that point in the holidays when you actually start to crave vegetables? That’s when your body is truly desperate for nutrients.
With visions of sugar plums dancing in our heads, and bellies, it can be hard to remember what nutrition tastes like. Perhaps your host might enjoy a bouquet of fresh vegetables.
3. An extra hour of sleep
Daylight savings time would be better to end in December. That way when people are walking around wearing their sunglasses inside because they have headaches, at least there was an opportunity to have just one extra hour of rest before heading to work.
4. Stretchy pants
Ahhh, the gift that keeps on giving. Being comfortable during this time of the year is a high priority, whether you are a host or a guest. It’s hard to screw up getting the right size, AND they’ll be the only pants you can fit into in the New Year, so they are essential. Plus they make for CUTE family photos.
5. The gift of your company in February when everyone retreats to their caves again
Sure everyone wants to party and spend time with you now, but what about in February when the days have been dark and rainy for the last four months and everyone is suddenly on a budget? Instead of retreating to your Netflix blanket fort alone every night, invite a friend to join you. BYOB (bring your own blankie) and stretchy pants! And don’t you DARE tell me you are too old to build blanket forts! Even Queen Elizabeth II builds blanket forts for her and her corgies*. Have you watched the new season of The Crown?! Because she has*! While wearing stretchy pants* from INSIDE A BLANKET FORT*.
