It's time for all those Holiday parties. Its always great to take a hostess gift to show how much you appreciate the effort that the host put in arranging the party and saying thank you for being invited. Chocolates and a bottle of wine make great hostess gifts but if you are looking to give something a little less conventional here are some great ideas for you. I love everything Handmade and small businesses. Here are some of my favorite Etsy picks. Your hostess will be able to enjoy these gifts even after the holiday season is long over. You will be able to find a lot of options below $20 in these stores.
Jams from Lemonbird. They have a variety of unique flavors such as Grapefruit with Jalapeno and candied ginger, Strawberry with cinnamon, Seneca plums with Bay leaf ans many more. Yummy!
Here are some of the products that I thought would make great gifts.
Gourmet Popcorn Spice Kit - a great gift for movie/TV lovers in your life - 8 tins filled with delicious spice blends packed in a white box
Gourmet naturally flavored salts (48mm diam/ 8 tins) - no artificial colors or flavors.
Chai spice kits to add flavor to your tea. Indian spice kit.

MookaSoap sells skin-loving, delicious smelling environmentally friendly soaps, butters, balms and salts that nourish the skin and stimulate the senses.
Gift pack of 4 all natural lip balms from Inlulu'sGarden.
I am in love with the chic and simple personalised stationery from LetterLoveDesigns and am very sure your hostess will love it too.
Lavender sachets from Veronica sun. Not only will they smell good but look good too!
Coasters make a great hostess gift. These are made from rough and rustic tubled marble tiles. They are small pieces of art by itself. These are from thepaintedlily.
Note : I have not been compensated in anyway by these sellers. I have never tried any of the products but just thought that they were great gift ideas.
