Hello Fabulistas! The holiday season is upon us and that means dinner parties and holiday celebrations. This time of the year is a great opportunity to really show your creativity by bringing something special to your friend’s home. If you think ahead of time, you can find some truly fabulous, one-of-a-kind gifts and save money to boot!
Think flea markets, sales in your favorite stores, sample sales and wholesale resources. Here are some of my fab finds from flea markets and wholesale shopping that will be making their way to some of my friends this season!
These vintage salt and pepper shakers are from a flea market in Paris, my absolute favorite place on earth! They are unique and will definitely add a little something extra to anyone’s home.
A cake plate is also a wonderful find to share with family and friends over the holiday. You can pair this with your favorite pie recipe to spice things up a bit and tell your hostess that she can keep the gift – who knows, it could become a new tradition in your group!
Unique pitchers are also a great gift. Bring the ingredients and mix your favorite cocktail to get the party started!
I love glass! Blown-glass, art-glass, Venetian glass, I’m just a sucker for it! This vase is one of my flea market finds and is unique, colorful and truly a one-of-a-kind gift. It’s perfect for any housewarming, holiday party or brunch. Whenever you give a vase for a gift, think about bringing flowers as an extra added touch.
Salad and serving utensils are also a much-appreciated gift. Whether you go vintage or new, look for something that has a little bit extra personality so they stand on their own. These are especially unique and were purchased at a wholesale vendor at a gift show.
The holidays aren’t the only time we get invited to dinner parties so it’s a good idea to always have something on hand to bring along. If you buy the them when you see them, you’ll save time, energy and money when you get invited to someone’s house…you’ll also have the most unique gifts of any of the guests!
