The most wonderful time of the year is upon us, but it’s not without the inevitable confusion that arises when trying to choose the most decent hostess gift among a sea of ‘not-so-great’ ones. The solution? Simplify the gift selection process by making a quick trip to Homesense or your favourite gourmet grocery store. There, you’ll find oodles of unique and affordable household items ready for gifting.
>> When selecting your gifts, go for items that are equally as stylish as they are useful. Artisanal foods, luxury soaps, modern candles, chic kitchen linens and utensils, and classic Christmas ornaments are sure-fire hostess pleasers.
