(And a few tips for hosting the most perfect virtual Friendsgiving!)
We said it last week and we’ll say it again - any day after Nov. 1 is considered the holidays here at Something Splendid. Between now and the end of the year, we’re helping our favorite shoppers provide the best, most thoughtful gifts, with your recipient in mind.
This week, we’re focused on the hosts and hostesses: those kind enough to welcome you into their hearts and homes, whether in-person or virtually this year. Show your gratitude for their hospitality, with one of several gift boxes perfect for fall, winter, or anytime!
Before we dive in, though, we’re also sharing three tips perfect for virtual Friendsgiving celebrations:
- Ahead of the party, share a recipe for the party “signature cocktail”. Depending on the theme, search for a color-coordinated recipe (alcoholic and/or non-alcoholic) that will help everyone get into the spirit of the season!
- Have attendees share their favorite family recipes. In the days leading up to the party, have friends submit their recipes, curate them into a cute-but-easy Canva document, and share on the day of the party.
- Create a Must-See list: Whether for Thanksgiving or Christmas or any other theme you come up with, create a list of your favorite occasion-specific tv episodes, movies, podcasts or anything else. Share your list with party attendees who may be looking for some new entertainment outside of the same old Netflix.
Now that you’re party-focused, it’s time to shop
