Ever gotten ready for a holiday get-together only to realize at the last minute that you (dun-dun-DUN) have no gift?
Do not panic-sweat through your festive attire. Instead, create a holiday gift closet now, before the ‘daze begins—a time-saver and a sanity-saver, all in one.
Buy multiples of charming, inexpensive, and (almost) universally appealing presents. Stash them with a pack of gift bags and tissue paper. A mixed dozen of the items below will get you through the holidays with grace and ease—and for about $100.
Ring in good cheer. This jack-shaped ring holder ($8) pulls double duty as a bauble organizer and a quirky accent piece.
Get fresh. A classic Petit soap ($12) helps your friend unwind after a long day of holiday stress (er, cheer), or she can tuck it into her drawer as a sachet.
Prettify the fridge. Stoneware farmers’ market baskets ($14) are a cheeky way to store produce or display goodies. Fill ’em with candies for added gift gusto.
Channel your inner dude. Give the gift of “manly” candles ($14) the whole fam will enjoy in earthy aromas like Campfire and Fresh Cut Grass. (No guarantees on the pizza scent.)
