Unique holiday gifts!

I love the holiday season but it can be a stressful time, trying to pick out that "perfect" gift for a friend or relative. I'm always looking for unique things to give and keep a stash of extra little gifts for those "unexpected" people that might drop by during the holiday season. I also love to take a small hostess gift with me when I visit friends during the holidays. This can be as simple as an ornament tied to a bottle of wine. 

Here are some unique gifts—perfect for those "special" people in your life.

Gold Jeweled Ornaments from Gaiam. I love adding an ornament to a package or bottle of wine.

You can't go wrong with a candle. This monogram one is from Anthropology and masculine enough for your male  friends.

Beautiful Murano Glass wine stoppers. Need I say more!

Simple handmade journals found on Etsy.

A beautiful planner  from Yellowthreads.

I found this on Esty also—perfect for the "artist".

Books are always nice for your "book lover" friends. These two are on my wish list so I hope my husband reads my blog!  You can find them at Anthropologie.
