Dress/Vestido: c/o Rent The Runway (also love this color), Beer Tote: Nordstrom sold out (similar),  Wine Tote: Nordstrom also love this one (under $50), Shoes/Zapatos: Valentino

Something my mom taught me at an early age was to never ever show up at someone’s home empty handed. I remember always bringing something small even while I was in college to my friends place, either a bottle of wine, flowers or chocolates. During the holiday season this rule applies across the board, so you are probably wondering what to get your friend who is hosting a Christmas Party…well worry no more. Below I’m sharing a few of my favorite “Hostess” holiday gifts with all of you. It’s always important to say “thank you” to that friend who is taking the time to host you and a group of friends during this busy time of the year. It does not need to be a big or expensive gift but perhaps something unique that will stand out among all the many gift this holiday season. I particularly love this holiday accent pillow, this colorful Millifiori flower vase and these holiday glasses. Throughtout the entire Holiday Season I will be sharing holiday gift guides for every special occasion or person in your life. Make sure to check back every week for a new Holiday Gift Guide, for example for the “Travel” friend in your life (one of my favorite ones), the “men in your life”, the “business savy friend” or what to wear during this holiday season (love this roundup) and so much more. Hope you can visit the blog for your source of everything holiday inspired this year. Which is your favorite item below?

A big thank you to the Rent The Runway team for loaning me this gorgeous Alexis lace dress. I love the mix between conservative yet sexy; this Alexis midi dress is form fitting and the lace adds a touch of sexiness. The high neckline and tea length adds a conservative touch to the dress. You can also rent this bold red color for Christmas or buy this classic burgundy color for the holiday events ahead. Thank you for reading and I hope everyone has a great week ahead.
