Can you believe that Christmas is just 7 short weeks away? We all know that the next two months are going to fly by at lightning speed.

This year, holiday parties and gatherings will look a lot different than years past. There has been talk of outdoor party events (weather permitting), a socially-distanced wine tasting, Christmas Scavenger Hunt or Secret Santa.

For us, showing up to a party empty-handed is never an option. We want our hosts to know how much we appreciate the party and the trouble that they have gone through. Typically our hostess gifts are handmade and include a special note.  In an effort to make your holiday season as carefree as possible we gathered together 28 ideas for easy DIY holiday hostess gifts.

To Make A Bottle of Wine Even More Special

At the top of our list is taking a bottle of wine to our party hosts. During the holiday season we put a little bit more effort into our gift presentation. Here are 3 easy DIY ideas to add more pizazz to your wine presentation.

Sweater Wine Bag

This is the perfect DIY project for using old sweaters. If you have any sweaters that are stained or streched out, think about repurposing them as a Sweater Wine Bag. We added tags and greenery to make the bag more festive. If you are presenting this at Thanksgiving, think about adding a leaf or feather.
