With Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away, I thought I’d kick-off my 2016 Holiday Gift Guide with hostess gifts. When attending a Thanksgiving dinner or upcoming holiday soiree, it’s always a good thing to bring a little something for the hostess. When considering hostess gifts, it’s always best to give a gift that you would like to receive yourself. If you love it, odds are they will too! Here are some of my favorite hostess gift ideas for the 2016 holidays. From festive candles to plaid kitchen dish towels, there is something here for everyone!

advent calendar 2015 // via @simplifiedbeeHappy December! The first day of the month is always exciting for me, but I’m especially loving this first day of December. It marks the beginning of advent. A count down to Christmas Day. Advent calendars have been a family tradition that I’ve passed down to my own family. This year we even have two advent calendars – one that hangs on the wall that doesn’t have any treats and another my girls talked me into getting at Starbucks  seen above (I’m such a sucker!). Here are some other fun advent calendars to buy or make!

Making your own advent calendar doesn’t have to be overly complicated either. I love this version by Oh Happy Day using non-traditional bright neon ribbons!
