DIY Holiday Gift Basket for the Family Gathering Host/ess

This post is sponsored by Wayfair.ca, all views, opinions and holiday host gift ideas are my own.

I absolutely adore the holidays and everything that goes along with them, especially all the turkey! Though, we all know that it can be somewhat overwhelming when (in my family anyways) it is your turn to host the family gathering. There is so much prep that goes into the home before and cleanup afterwards that it is important not to forget about the host.

When the night finally comes we want to make sure that the host/ess that is putting on the gathering is going to also enjoy themselves to the fullest. An idea that I had was creating a gift that is more then just a bottle of wine or their favorite alcoholic beverage but something that they can enjoy beyond the event. Even better, something that can help them to relax following the big day and their (possibly multiple) days of cleanup.

A holiday gift basket with a collection of your favorite things is the perfect gift to give as you can customize it with treats and nick nacks that you know your friend or family member will love. I have created a sample basket of some of my favorite holiday items and treats to relax to give you an idea of what it could look like and to show that you don’t have to go overboard with spending, but a few handmade specialty items make just the right package.

DIY Holiday Gift Basket for the Host/ess

The best part is, you can create a basket as big or as small as you want, caturing each item to match the needs of your friend of family member hosting your holiday party. I have included some of my favorite gifting items to give ideas and have listed them below. First things first though is finding the perfect basket. I am all about gifting items that come in packaging that can be reused, whether you are looking for a small and simple basket or a larger basket to hold bigger gifts you can find a large assortment on Wayfair.ca.

Think about a theme for a basket and how you would like the host/ess to feel when opening. I went for a relaxing theme that was focused on handmade, with a little touch of something sweet.

My Personalized Basket Contents:

Holiday Wreath: I created this DIY Holiday Wreath myself. It is an easy DIY most should be able to create from contents in their own home.

be Merry Wall Hang: Sprig West

Milk Bath and Bath Balms: Bébé de Luxe

Get Closer All Natural Deoderant: K’pure Naturals

Settle Down Essential Oil Spray: K’pure Naturals

Handmade Wood Ornament: The Uncommon Good

Candy Cane: The perfect touch of sweet.

Shredded Paper: Baskets always look more full and fancy when you add a little sparkle to your packaging. Have fun with it!

It is that easy, I added these eight items and created something that will easily make the night of the person that has been slaving away stressing about the holiday event they are going to be hosting. I encourage you to take a minute this holiday season and try to do a little extra for those that are doing a little extra for you. Something that takes a few minutes will mean the world to the receiver. Enjoy the holidays and bless you.

  • Excuse the language but...... We fucking did it!! Holy crap. 21.1 Kms you guys. We are pumped!

I had so so many thoughts and doubts going on in my head before and even during this run and I’m so glad I didn’t listen to them. This was a goal of mine (even though I should have trained more, only three 7 km runs leading up 🙊😳) that I now get to put a big check mark on. Heck yah!

James turned into some sort of wizard and passed the finish line at the 1 hour 50 minute mark and I made it over around 2 hours and 45 minutes. We did it babe!!!! #seawheeze #seawheeze2019 #halfmarathon #lululemon #vancouverisawesome

  • Happy Friday friends. Hoping you all get a chance to grab a drink and find a sweet spot to relax this weekend. I’ll be thinking of you as I complete a half marathon tomorrow 😅😅😅 As we head into the weekend I wanted to give a cheers to some ladies who inspire, encourage and motivate me in this space.

Motivated by @pyurvodkasoda (Power Your Own Unique Reality) they’ve asked who is my #PYURinspiration, so here we go. — @vancitybusinessbabes Danielle, Sydnee and Nancy are a powerhouse team who constantly are encouraging me and so many other ladies in business. I love how they have taken their passion and grown it across Canada and into the US with @businessbabesco — @ilikeherstylevancouver reaches out to me in their early days and have given me the opportunity to share a little piece of my heart continually in their issues as a contributor. Every issue I love how community focused they are, networking up a storm and creating such beautiful content for their community. — @jamprco is a local PR company that I’ve had the pleasure of working with many times and their love for local and community is empowering.

These are just a few bossbabes that inspire me with what they are doing within this local community and on Instagram. I want to challenge you to also share who inspires you, tag them (or a few people) below who are constantly inspiring and encouraging you in business and life. Let’s make some peoples days and share the ❤️❤️❤️
  • I literally LOVE every photo from this recent shoot with @juliechristinephotography so be prepared for more.⁠

Also, this photo was taken to show off the bling bling (one bling for each ring) on my finger. Both these pieces are made from Canadian diamonds and created at the Park Royal @lugarojewellers location.

I’ll share info in my stories tomorrow, let me know if you have any questions below. #ad #cwjwpartner #lugarojewellers
  • Do you ever have those moments in the midst of parenting and you stop for a second and think “this, this is a moment they are going to remember.” It’s usually in those everyday moments, ones we do over and over. The other night, while James was watering the garden and the girls were running around I had that feeling of, “this is their childhood, this is what they will remember.”
