Gifts for the Hostess + Green Monday Sales

Happy Green Monday! Did y'all know that's a thing?!? In fact, Green Monday is the third biggest online shopping day of the year and some even refer to it as the "Cyber Monday" of December. So what's the big deal?! Well, that's just it... DEALS! ;) 

We'll get to those in a second, but first off, this Monday's gift guide is all with your hostess friends in mind! Whether you're going to an office party or a family member's house for a holiday get together, it's always nice to bring a little something for the person who is so graciously hosting you.

I'm in the camp that says a nice bottle of wine is ALWAYS a great gift, but why not amp it up a little with a cute wine bag or stopper?! I'm also imagining how fun it'd be to bake a yummy bread in this pretty loaf pan and gift it to a girlfriend! One other favorite would have to be these cute "tidbit plates". They come in a set of four and each say a different little saying!
