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.


This first one is my favorite, because it's a versatile multi-use item, and it's so chic. …

Valentine's Day Gift Guide for Kids: The Ultimate Girly Grab Bag

Shop Valentine's Day Plush
I used to get my girls a Valentine's Day basket each year, similar to an Easter basket, filled with small Valentine's Day items like craft supplies, hair accessories, and the obligatory Valentine's Day stuffed animal. This year I'm doing something similar only with a pink canvas tote in place of the basket. All those cheap holiday tubs and baskets end up wasting space and not being of any real use, but a sturdy reusable tote bag, that I know my girls will use. I picked up two pink canvas bags from the crafts store and filled each with their favorite girly things - nail polish, hair clips, candy hearts, bracelets, crafts supplies, and a stuffed animal.

You don't have to spend a lot, a trip to the dollar store or drug store can help you fill their Valentine's Day bags with plenty of girly gifts. I often purchase holiday party favors that come with several in a pack, like mini notepads. With small items like those, you don't have to worry about price vs. quality since the kids will use them up quickly anyway. I also like to save money by getting them things they always need anyway, like more craft supplies. It's a perfectly affordable way for me to make Valentine's Day special for my girls.
