Add A Little Sparkle To Your Gift List

It is official, “Let the Games Begin!” Now that Thanksgiving is over we can begin the Christmas festivities in full force!!

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving but I must admit I feel a bit like a stuffed turkey this morning!! The crockpot pumpkin pudding was a big hit and I highly recommend it!! (recipe here)

With only 30 days until Christmas I know that what to buy your friends and loved ones  is on all of our minds.

 There will be parties and gatherings to attend and hostess gifts that will need to be purchased.

I was perusing Zgalleries site this morning, and if you want some glitz and glitter this is the place to shop.
I love the way they always have a color story every year. This year it appears to be sparkly whites and reds with a few touches of blue.

I thought I would share a few ideas for hostess gifts, or if you are like me and make Christmas socks for adult children a few of these would be great stocking stuffers as well.

This first item would be a welcomed site by any hostess……

This candle has a rhinestone band and the candle itself is in a shimmering finish. It comes in white, soft blue and a beautiful red.

At $15.95-$19.95 this would make a perfect hostess gift.

I love these trays with the rhinestone trim. Anything served on these trays would looks special! I think these are a steal at $12.95.

To add to our sparkly them how about a set of these sparkly place card holders………

Oooooh!! what a fun gift, sparkly dominoes!!
I must be in a sparkly mood today, but I think any of the above gifts would be welcomed by anyone!!

I will leave you all with this cute saying I read the other day……..


“Enjoy the Process” Of:

Adding a little sparkle into someone's life!

These are all fantastic gift ideas, Kathysue, but, I'm actually more tempted to add them to my own Christmas wish list!
Have a lovely day!

Oh I LOVE the little place card holders - they would be just perfect for New Years - a little bling but still simple and elegant .
