KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend, and welcome to Friday Finds! Today it's all about holiday hostess gifts. It about the time when you may have several seasonal parties and functions to attend, and you should never show up empty-handed. The best hostess gift should be something just for the hostess that he or she can use at a later time, either for entertaining or just for themselves. Just because you may have been assigned a side dish or drinks, you should still being along a special hostess gift.

A hostess gift doesn't need to cost a lot. They can range anywhere from $10-$25, and really should be on average $20. There are so many appropriate options in this price range - anything from a set of tea towels to a cookbook, or something gourmet, or even a little bath and body gift. If you need a hostess gift for a party or dinner this holiday season, you can't go wrong with one of the picks below.

Support Our Troops with Operation Gratitude

I was researching ways to bake with Halloween candy along with other ideas, to bring you guys one of those "10 Things to Do With Leftover Candy" posts, when I came across an idea that deserves the spotlight all to itself.



Operation Gratitude sends about 100,000 care packages each year to deployed troops. They are currently accepting candy donations to add to their boxes. What a sweet way to give back.
Operation Gratitude accepts all kinds of donations and letters for our U.S. Service men and women, so I bet if you take a peek at their website you'll find there is a way you can give, even if you can't afford to give much. What I really love about the program is how they also give to Wounded Warriors and children of deploying soldiers, with projects like Battalion Buddies.

  2. My sister is a sergeant in the army. She's heading out soon for her third tour of Afghanistan. So I'm in full support of the troops, and this is a great cause.

    I'm also here for the hop. I'd love if you could check me out.
