10 Housewarming Gifts So That You Don't Show Up Empty Handed This Holiday Season

The holiday season is approaching us quickly, meaning that it is also the season of giving to those we love. Our friends and family give up their time to open up their homes to celebrate one of the most wonderful times of the year and the best thing to say thank you is a housewarming gift. These items not only will be a fan favorite at a Secret Santa party, but also are extremely affordable, especially if you happen to be attending multiple gatherings. The best gift is to make someone else's day with a personal handpicked gift and here are some of the best gifts to do so:

1. Capri Blue candle

The Capri Blue Jar Candle is a great addition for a holiday gathering. It lights up a room with its amazing scent and beautifully designed jar. It is sold in multiple different scents and found at Anthropologie for only $30.00. Yes, it is hard to purchase candles at times because everyone has a different taste in scents, but I can guarantee you that you will not go wrong with any scent you choose!

2. Cheeseboard

Who can have a holiday gathering without a cheese and charcuterie board? Not me! This is a perfect gift for the hostess as it is only $29.99 at Crate and Barrel and can be used for multiple occasions and better yet, can be hung in the pantry.

3. Monogrammed napkins

Napkins are a necessity to every gathering and these monogrammed napkins add a nice touch to the party. Only $9.99 each at Bed Bath and Beyond, they are a nice simple way of saying, "Thank You", to your host.

4. A bottle of wine with personalized wine tote

Wine is one of the most gifted items during the holiday season because everybody loves wine and it always spices up the mood. What's even better is having a monogrammed tote to carry your wine around in! No one likes just carrying a single bottle alone, we always feel as though we have to have it in a bag when we walk into a party. This bag is a great investment that anyone would enjoy having. Only $59.99 for both at Harry & David.

5. Oversized cozy throw blanket

This is one of the most popular items to be gifted during the holiday season and I can say I received a lot of collections like this one from Williams Sonoma and I absolutely love them. Such a great way to have cleanliness in the air. Ranging from $7.99-79.99.

7. Signage 

signs

We all love adding new home decor to our homes. A sweet, simple touch to someone's home is signage. Pottery Barn sells an abundance of them with different quotes, sayings, and for different seasons at a low price of $29.99 and, make sure to look for sales because some of the best signs you can find are on the sale racks!

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
