The Holiday Hit List | Hen House Linens

THE HOLIDAY HIT LIST

I am making a list.  I am checking it twice.  And frankly, I am feeling naughtier than nice.  Because let’s face it, finding the perfect gift for every-single-body turns the brain to a bowl full of jelly. It’s the “just the right gift” of it all that gets me…  Personal.  Unexpected.  Enjoyed time and again.  Let me save your brain with my spin on it.  Hope it inspires you and checks a few names off your own list.

THE CATCH-ALLS

This category covers neighbors, co-workers, teachers, yoga instructors (you know she is too skinny) and dear old Aunt Irma.  Cook up something tasty and wrap it in reusable packaging.

Roll it up with a dinner napkin...

Present it with a potholder...

Wrap it in a guest towel...

Twas the Week Before Christmas...

Twas the week before Christmas and all through the house, this creature is stirring, but I don't mean to grouse. There is so much to do at the holidays, I hardly have time to even stand still beneath the mistletoe! And, if you are like me, it seems no matter how good your intentions or early prep work, it is always a mad dash to complete the holiday shopping. (There is always someone you've totally forgotten!) Don't pout! I have some great last minute ideas sure to please every-last-minute-one on your list:

Myriad Hostesses ~ A Guest Towel tied as a jaunty cravat on a bottle of wine. Teachers ~ A yummy soap or candle wrapped in a Guest Towel Brother's Brand New Girlfriend ~ Cocktail Apron and Cocktail Napkins Backdoor Neighbor ~ Potholder tied up with a wooden spoon and your favorite cookie recipe Dear Old Mom (so hard to buy for...) ~ Cook's Apron You (can't forgot you!) ~ Dinner Napkins in a festive color for sharing a special meal with your most beloved or leaving beside a plate of cookies and milk for one jolly old elf to dab his whiskers.
