those last minute goodies can be a bit stressful, even a lot stressful. best laid plans? i try to buy little goodies throughout the year and store them in a closet the kids haven't stumbled upon... yet.
for a hostess gift, i'll pass on one of my favorites - which is pretty much always a hit - kai perfume oil. always warmly welcomed, even though it's small, it seems to pack a punch due to the joy i see on my friends' faces when they receive it. they don't have to share it and let's be frank, it lasts longer than a bottle of wine! now to think of it, how about a bottle of each?
p.s. great for teacher gifts, too!
