style of sam gift guide for the hostess 2019


Hello GlamFam! It’s hard to believe it’s already this time of year. It’s my favorite season but also happens to be the most demanding for work AND home. I will be publishing a few Gift Guides (possibly multiple in a day to get them all up this week) and style posts this week to help you take advantage of some of the major sales going on this week.

Behind every busy woman is an awesome and supportive team!! I wanted to take some time to introduce you to Amy who has been helping me behind the scenes. Amy has roots in Texas but currently lives in her husband’s home state of Virginia. She has three beautiful children ranging from a 8- year old to a college student. In between caring for her family, she loves to be creative and has been helping me with back end blog things and now the gift guides!! I just wanted to share my appreciation for someone who is making my life easier!!

So on to the gift guide…

ONE // Jo Malone Candle Collection ($100)
This collection of amazing scents are sure to be appreciated. Jo Malone never disappoints, and your hostess will have a five different scents to choose to fill her home. My personal favorite is peony and blush suede! Scents include Nectarine Blossom, Peony and Blush Suede, Frosted Cherry & Clove, Green Tomato Leaf, and Roasted Chestnut

TWO //  Christmas Breakfast Crate ($79.95)
Give your hostess everything they need to make a fun and yummy Christmas morning breakfast! This crate has flapjack mix, maple syrup, a Holiday 7-1 shaped pancake flipper and a red spatula.

THREE // Moscow Mule Gift Set ($109.95)
This is a party in a box! With all the holiday events, you’re sure to enjoy this crate. It comes with 2 Moscow Mule copper mugs, Moscow Mule mix, jigger and a classic logo towel.

FOUR // Acacia Wood Slab Cheese Serving Pedestal ($112)
The kiln-dried Acacia wood makes this serving dish the perfect piece to display your charcuterie or cheese tray. It’s beautiful and elevated (literally too)!

FIVE // Peppermint Bark Gift Crate ($89.95)
You had me at peppermint bark. I CAN.NOT.STOP.EATING.THIS once I get my hands on it! LOL! It’s a gift that your hostess will be able to share, or not! ;) This set has everything you’ll need for a cozy winter evening and includes peppermint infused hot chocolate, two tartan mugs, and peppermint bark.

SIX // Eggnog Buttercream Cake ($140)
Talk about a show-stopping desert! This cake comes ready to present! Just select the date you want it delivered and enjoy.

SEVEN // Lydia Serving Tray ($38)
Give the gift of gold! Bringing this tray will add the perfect amount of shine to any Holiday event.

EIGHT // Reclaimed Pine Wood Holiday Tree Board ($129)
I’m a sucker for anything marble and wood! Holiday entertaining will be easy and festive with this serving board. They can use it as decor when it’s not in use a serving board.

NINE // Sofia Cashmere Fringed Throw ($234.50)
Giving cashmere is always a good idea, and this soft blanket comes in so many gorgeous colors.

TEN // Colossal Capri Blue Mercury Glass Candle ($142.40)
These are beautiful and smell phenomenal. If you’ve ever walked into an Anthropologie and wondered what that amazing smell was, then this IS IT!! The volcano scented candle is a great gift for anyone and is a personal favorite that I also have in my home.

ELEVEN // La Chatelaine Deluxe Hand Cream Collection ($66.50)
Raise your hand if your skin is super dry during the winter? Yep, this set of 12 travel sized lotions is definitely what we need! It’s one of Oprah’s Favorite Things so you know it’s got to be good!

TWELVE // Galaxy Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Wreath ($49.95)
This is the perfect gift for any winter morning (or anytime). Pop it in the oven for a warm, flaky sweet treat!

THIRTEEN // Nesting Stoneware Mixing Bowls ($115-$140) Pair one of these gorgeous bowls with some yummy cookie or muffin mix and you have a great gift.

FOURTEEN // Boozy Pie Flight ($50)
The name says it all! This set of four pies (Whiskey Pecan, Vodka Peach, Coconut Almond Stout, and Gin Key Lime) will be the hit of the party.

FIFTEEN // Nordstrom at Home Kennebunk Bliss Throw ($39.50)
This beautiful blanket is worth way more than its price tag shows. Its soft, luxe, washes like a dream and will be appreciated for years to come.

SIXTEEN // Winter Forest Essential Oils Collection ($12.95-$69.95)
I love the woodsy scent of this collection, and it’s always nice to have a nice set out when your entertaining. I’ve given this gift collection a couple of times, and it’s always a hit!

SEVENTEEN //  Vietri Limited Edition Platter ($126)
This not only looks adorable, but it’s a limited edition collectors item as well. It’s the perfect size for appetizers or cookies! A little bit about the company… The origins of Vietri begin with a mother-daughter trip to Italy. Lee Gravely and her daughters fell in love with the colorful design and artistry of the local handcrafted dinnerware. They chose to name their importing company after Vietri sul Mare, the town where they created their first dinnerware pattern.


Happy Monday Y’all!! The kids are home for Thanksgiving Holiday, and we’re trying to get Holiday Decorations up before all the guests arrive on Thursday for Thanksgiving. It’s been a little chaotic since my youngest is sick, and I think Little M is now getting sick too! :( Somehow, I have to go grocery shopping with them and get all the things done before heading to work on Wednesday and then hosting Thanksgiving lunch at noon! Wish me luck!
