Last minute gifts for hosts

Picture it, you’ve got all of your Christmas shopping done, it’s all wrapped and you’re feeling glorious about it all, you’re sitting on the sofa planning which outfit will look nice for Christmas Day as well as have enough room for the amount of food you’re planning on eating. When suddenly you realise you haven’t got your host a small gift to say thank you…

Okay, now story time is over let’s get onto the quick ideas to get you off the hook so you can get back to that sofa.

First up, people always love flowers, in Tesco this year they have some gorgeous Christmas bouquets, some even with a nutcracker on a stick decoration, very cute.

Next you can always find gift sets in shops at all times of the year, from wine and a glass, to miniature bottles of whisky, have a quick scout around the end of the drinks aisle and you’ll find some!

And whether you find them tacky or cute, singing Christmas toys are a must in any household! (And you can never have too many…)

I hope that gives you some inspiration for quick gifts! Let me know what you like to take!

This book is perfect for the little one in the family!

Not only does it come as a train but you can get it in multiple designs which can be suited to boys and girls.

The best thing about the book is that it’s not just a book, it’s a road to play with and it converts into a train!

Unicorns are all the rage at the moment, from little children to teens (and older!) This LED light is a nice alternative to something that is overly sparkly, it can add the perfect amount of pizazz to your room without going OTT.

This is also on the pricey side, but I’ve always thought getting a genuine leather notebook and a pen with it, is a lovely gift. And with Not on the High Street you can get it personalised.

This is a gorgeous print for your partner.
You can have the soundwave print to say what ever you want, whether it’s of you saying ‘I do’ or simply ‘I love you’ it can be anything.
