The holidays are all about celebrations. It’s not uncommon to be invited to a flurry of events during the months of November and December. Friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers are all likely to host festivities. The last thing you want to do is attend a party empty handed! Bringing a hostess gift is common courtesy and good form. And, with so many to look forward to, it just makes sense to stock up on these gifts so you’re not scrambling when the time comes.
TOPDesign Canvas Tote Bag. This elegant bag is great for your hostess with the most-est! It’s fashioned of natural jute spliced with cotton canvas and can be carried by hand or over the shoulder with its durable handles. What’s especially appealing about this bag is that it can be personalized with a letter so all of your hostess gifts will feel especially thoughtful.
Wine Aerator Pourer. If there was a way to make wine even better, wouldn’t you be interested?

Carousel Candle. The carousel candle available at The Curimama Store is a nostalgic tradition from holidays past for many people. Choose from the bicycle or spinning horse, the carousel sits several inches above the candle flame, which provides the air for it to move. It comes packaged (unassembled) in a beautiful box. The scented candle and delightful golden horses (or bicycles) add serenity to any holiday evening.
A Bottle of Wine. It’s easy to purchase a case of wine and distribute as you head out to your various parties.

With the holidays nearly upon us, you just know that even with all of the fun there is bound to be a bit of stress – chaos at the stores and last-minute get-togethers. Do yourself a favor by planning in advance!
