Holiday Hostess Gift Ideas + How to Make a Pinwheel Bow #Hallmark



I just love the holidays! All of the food, get-togethers, time with loved ones. It can't be beat! During this time, you'll probably have your fair share of invites to holiday parties. But don't go empty handed. Make a quick stop at Hallmark. Hallmark Gold Crown Stores don't just carry Holiday cards, but they also have cute holiday themed gifts. Perfect for hostess gifts or Secret Santa presents.



I headed to my local Hallmark Gold Crown store during their Holiday Open House to browse around and saw the cutest little hostess gifts.


The Hallmark Candy Cane dish is perfect for Christmas candies. Here, I added a bunch of small candy canes.


The Hallmark mug with cozy sweater is perfect for sipping hot chocolate on a cold winters night. Add a pack of hot cocoa and marshmallows for an easy Christmas gift idea.


Get a closer look by watching this video!






Finish by wrapping your gift box with gorgeous double sided wrapping paper from Hallmark Crown stores. Like that Pinwheel Bow? Let me show you how I made it!

How to make a pinwheel bow for Christmas presents.



Pinwheel Bow Instructions:

1. Cut a small square of double sided wrapping paper.
2. Make a cut at each corner toward the middle of the square for a total of four slits.
3. Take one corner and glue or tape it down in the middle. Do the same with the opposite corner.
4. Tape to gift wherever you see fit. Finish with a mint or candy cane (optional).




Keep your hostess gifts under your Christmas tree or displayed nicely on your coffee table or end table for a festive Christmas look. Your gift is now ready for your next Holiday shindig. Now, who's inviting me to their Christmas party!
