The holidays are literally around the corner. Have you thought about the details of your own entertaining, or the proper ways to say THANK YOU to those who will be entertaining you in the coming weeks? I have put together a list, with links, to help you prepare for the holidays (in time), most at below retail prices. If you have ideas to add to this list, I hope you will share in the comments section below, we all love inspired gifts~ Cheers to you this holiday season:

Wine Decanter, Winebreather, Carafe, aerator, decant, red wine, wine gift, wine lover

  2. Can I just make this my gift list? All great ideas. People really do love the wine decanter, every person we’ve ever given this to has made this their go-to wine gift. Glad you are enjoying yours enough to suggest it on your gift list.

  3. Hmm a lot of ideas. My holidays are simple; we just gather in one of the friend’s home and rock all the day.
