Temperatures are finally falling, giving rise to thoughts of festive holiday gatherings well into the new year. Ever the gracious (and generous) guest, here’s your short list of perfectly thoughtful hostess gifts for every occasion available at The Shops at Columbus Circle. And don’t worry — we’ll tell them it was all your idea.
The snowy scene of Lady Liberty and colorful skyscrapers in this glittering New York City-themed water dome ($39.95) from Papyrus is sure to get any host into the holiday spirit. Shake it up or give it a gentle twist to play the tune of “Beautiful Dreamer.”
Gourmands will welcome this classic duo ($49.95) from Williams-Sonoma. Used together or separately, the flavorful extra-virgin olive oil and 25-year-old barrel-aged balsamic vinegar will enhance dressings and marinades throughout the holidays — or while they last!
Your host will love the ambience created by the wafting fragrance of the Jo Malone seasonally scented English Pear and Freesia room diffusers ($95). Tuck a few away to be ready for last-minute invitations.
Who doesn’t enjoy a coffee-table book? Especially one that’s loaded with entertaining tips from style maven Kate Spade. All in Good Taste from Amazon Books ($27.50) will inspire even the best hostess with simple yet clever ideas.
Loaded with an assortment of carefully selected treats to appeal to every palate, the keepsake candy trunk ($195) from Sugarfina will appeal to the sweet tooth in everyone at the party. Custom assortments are also available.
And for the grand finale: If you need one blow-out gift, the compact Phantom speaker ($1,990-$2,990) from Devialet comes in beautifully designed gold, silver, and white models for the luckiest host of all.
