With Halloween just under our belt, we turn our attention to the upcoming holidays. And although the holidays seem far, far away, the grocery stores, the box stores, the food co-op, heck even the hardware stores, are telling us otherwise. And in looking at the calendar, Thanksgiving sits less than three short weeks away.
One of the most wonderful things about the holidays is getting together. With friends. With family. If you are the hosting type, you might already be thinking about your entertaining duties with glee, have your napkins ironed and your candles lit. If you’re the type that turns a little bit green at thought of listing and planning and baking and hosting, maybe our gear guide can at least put some ideas in your holiday entertaining toolbox.
Whatever your take on holiday entertaining, we hope you embrace it with two holiday cheers. Because what better way to enter the season? Here we go!
Classy highball glasses that shout holiday cocktails.
Festive, special cloth napkins for your holiday table, sweet enough to use every day after.
Serving spoons that speak of the season.
Lovely cookware that lets you go easily from stove to table with style.
Your own indoor herb garden for cooking or cocktails.
Portable speakers to create a holiday mood in any room of the house.
A unique tray for serving or a guest’s bedside table.
Put out chalkboard glass labels for guests to mark their wine glass, water glass, or bathroom glass.
If you’re not hosting, grab a handy carrier to keep things toasty.
Tap your favorite spirits in style and create a lively conversation piece.
Have a coffee table game ready for old and young alike.
Or if the snow has yet to pile up, make it a sweet giant yard game.
Start a new baking holiday tradition, and let guests help.
Or, just stick to the old tried and true favorite traditions… and make sure your carving tools are ready to rock.
And end it all with a beautiful hand-made sweet treat. And if you don’t have time to make your own, don’t fret… these beauties will leave a lasting holiday memory. Cheers!
