I rounded up some fun (and stinking cute) gifts that I love and that will have all your friends fighting over. Honesty, I want to keep them all! Makes for great teacher, neighbor and friend gifts too!

#1- Chips & Salsa in a Pretty Bowl-
Chips and Salsa is something I could eat all day long. It seriously is one of my favorite foods. When I saw these Red & Green Chips I thought how fun they would be gifted. This is a really nice ceramic bowl with red detail, I just put some queso and salsa in it with the chips and attached a Christmas card with a bag clip!
#2- Serving Board with Cheese Knives
This Wreath Serving Board (Tree Serving Tray, snowflake, or this nice cutting board is another option and only $9) will become one of those favorite timeless holiday pieces that I will bring out every year. Any serving board with this set of nice Cheese Knives, and some snacks to get them started. Like, cheese and crackers.
#3- Cute Drinking Cups with Festive Drink-
If you brought this to a party, I would snag it right up! These cups are so darling with little tree and gift details and the gold rimming is so nice! I found these colorful and tall canned drinks that fit perfect inside. We did Orange Splash, Cherry Limeade and Cola. The basket is actually from Targets dollar spot, I put the cups these large clear bags (we have 16×18 here, but linked a similar size). We put the cups and drinks inside a clear bag and set inside the basket, tied a bow and attached some fun paper straws to finish the gift off.
#4- Kitchen Essentials
These cute kitchen essential pieces are really similar to what I have on my stove! Love these oil and vinegar ceramic jars. They pour so nicely and are really cute to leave out for use. I also love these little salt and pepper cellars with a wood lid. Set everything on this mini pedestal stand. Lastly, added a little color with a cute hand towel! PS- we used these large clear bags (we have 16×18 here, but linked a similar size).
LOVE it on my stove! My sister was taking this to her house, it is so cute!
#5- Gingerbread House and Serving Board-
Last year a neighbor gave us a gingerbread kit and our family loved it! So unique! It was fun to sit down as a family and have a little activity to do. There were so many cute options,I grabbed the Gingerbread Manor with windows that look lit up and this Gingerbread Donut Shop was fun and different. And, I’m a sucker for a Pink Gingerbread House! We tied ours with a nice cutting board they could build on and then use after.
#6- Bowl with Lid and Cinnamon Pretzles
A new fun and easy-to-make treat we’ve been snacking on are these Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel’s. We’ve loved them so much we had a cute printable recipe made up. I really love the look of this Glass serve bowl with nice wood lid, these star pretzels look really cute inside. I put a few of the pretzel ingredients inside the bowl for a gift, along with these nice measuring spoons, mini spatulas and hand towel. Plus a little baggie of already made up Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels.
#7- Lamp (love!)
At a favorite things party I was recently at, someone brought this lamp with this lamp shade ! It really is SO pretty and a very nice gift. Cute to set on the kitchen counter or a small space. Really loved that gift idea!
#8- Frame with Christmas Card or Printable
I’m going to a favorite things Holiday party with some neighbor friends and at this party, we are supposed to bring a gift for everybody. You all know how much I love art. So I found this pack of Christmas Cards that was pretty enough to frame! This 5×7 Caning Frame is really cute, you could thrift a bunch of frames too!
#9- Brownie Kit-
Everything you need for a quick dessert. Potholders, brownie mix, whisk and everyone needs our favorite Brownie Spatula! It’s the best size to dish and serve with! I put some mini candy canes with it for a Christmas twist on brownies, just crumble and sprinkle on top!
#10- Game with Yummy Festive Treats-
When I buy games I like to buy the cutest version of it. Makes it easy to leave out! Loved this really nice set of Dominoes, packaged them up with some yummy treats. This package of Nuts and Chocolate was tasty and had cute pops of color, also these Holiday Peppermint cookies are good. Even nice to put with a homemade dessert. The gift of a family game night!
#11- Dessert Kit (Rocky Road Bars, yum!)
One of our favorite desserts to make during the Holidays is our Rocky Road Bars, so easy and everyone loves them! Gifting your favorite dessert recipes with their ingredients is always a thoughtful gift. I found these cute Red and Green Trays and package up all the ingredients in clear bags, I rolled down the bags then finished them off with a bag clip (I am always in need of bag clips!) and attached the recipe. These bag clips are colorful and so cute (not available in store)!!!
#12- Waffle Maker with Waffle Kit-
“We like you a WAFFLE lot!” Fun neighbor gift idea and easy favorite thing! Finn makes his eggs in this mini waffle make every morning. Easiest clean up ever. Packing a cute Winter Waffle maker with a favorite waffle mix , topped with a whisk is the nicest gift!
#13- Cupcake Kit-
Another favorite dessert is the Red Velvet Cupcakes my sister makes! We have a really cute printable that we put inside this nice mixing bowl set. It comes with the bowl, spatula and whisk. We put a red velvet cake mix, instant pudding and mini chocolate chips inside the bowl with a cute set of Christmas cupcake liners. We love how festive the red and white cupcakes look…plus they are REALLY yummy! You could even put a muffin mix inside.
#14- Glass Bowl Mixing Set with Lid-
If you could use some new bowls with matching lids raise your hand! But seriously, after awhile lids go missing, bowls break and it’s time for a nice new set. I really like this 4 piece glass set with lids that are cute colors. For a gift I attached a favorite salad recipe (our bowtie pasta salad recipe to be exact) with a new pair of tongs. Practical gifts are usually a favorite.
