Holiday Gift Guide-Hostess/Home

I have loved coming up with this gift guide, filled with perfect gifts for the hostess or home goodies lover. I went a little wild and have 23 items here.  I could have kept going too, but, you know, sometimes I like to sleep.

1.  A pretty set of cloth napkins never hurt anybody.
2. This fresh Olive Bay wreath not only looks pretty, but will fill your home with a lovely scent
3. "Birds of a feather always sprinkle together" Yes please! Glass Bird Salt & Pepper Shakers
4. A set of six latte bowls in yummy colors to brighten up the kitchen

5. This geometric tea towel is made from organic cotton.
6. I've had this saved for awhile and have since seen it on several gift guides-but I still had to share in case you've missed it. This amazing set of glassware is dipped in a bath of gold for the ultimate luxe touch.  Would make a gorgeous addition to any tabletop.  
7. It's hard to find a chic clock, but this one fits the bill.
8. A mason jar cast in porcelain makes a fun planter.

9. An air plant tucked into an ancient fossil makes an interesting and impressive gift
10. I am obsessing majorly over the new Thomas Paul "Mod Mex" collection. This pillow reverses to a coral chevron pattern on the back.
11. This artful vase co-designed by Tord Boontje, is made from recycled bottles.
12. I love the earthy glam of quartz, and these tea light holders are the perfect touch

13. A fanciful dinner plate can be used as a small hordes oeuvres platter as well. 
14. These adorable striped tea towels are made in San Francisco.
15. A bronze pillow from DwellStudio makes a nice accent.
16.  This "High Tea" vase has a fun "Alice in Wonderland" feel-and is on sale for only $15!

17. I love serving fancy olives at get togethers, and serving them up in an olive boat takes it up a notch
18. These ikat dessert plates are as delicious as the dessert served on top!
19. A slate cheese board set, for the cheese aficionado in your life.

20. The hand carved twines on these olive wood servers are just lovely
21. This Jonathan Adler "Muse" candle makes a great container once the candle has burned down {remember from Beth's vanity?}
22. I love the calligraphic illustrations on this Thomas Paul tray
23. Lastly, this "Bonne Nuit" taper holder evokes visions of romantic late night interludes.
