‘Tis the season for holiday parties, family gatherings and non-stop gift giving, leaving some of us at a bit of a loss for great last-minute presents. Whether bringing a thoughtful hostess gift to your New Year’s Eve party or sending the kids back to school with a thoughtful offering for their most patient teacher, you may need a little inspiration.


Hostess Gift

If you’re bringing your hostess a bottle of something, check out One Hope Wine’s online store. Buy wine for a good cause and shop a range of products from wine, coffee and gifts — all benefiting various charities. Each purchase goes toward a different cause, from animal rescue and clinical trials fighting cancer to providing vaccines and meals for children in need.


Enjoy a bottle of California Rosé for $19, while providing 50 women with ovarian cancer information or send one child to Technology and Enrichment Camp by purchasing three bottles of Chris Paul Signature Series Pinot Noir. For extra-special occasions, grab a case of 12 Mini Glitter Bottle Sparkling Brut for $360, while providing 48 meals to children in need.

Family, Friends and Teachers

Send a personalized gift with a touch of style from Parabo Press prints. Take a family photo, a friend’s Instagram post or a picture from your kid’s class trip and gift a high-quality print directly from your phone, tablet and camera.


Square prints from Parabo are among the most popular design options offered and the most affordable. Customers can receive 25 four-inch square prints for $16 and have Instagram photos ready for the wall. Orders can be made quickly and affordably while you’re on the go, visiting family or in need of a last-minute gift that doesn’t look like one.


Unexpected Guests

When a surprise guest joins the party and brings a gift, you will be glad you had some back-up. Stock up on candles, mugs or candy for a great go-to item for any last-minute addition to the party you don’t want to leave out. Have some seasonal scents tucked away for unexpected guests and no one will be the wiser. Having some candy on the side for kids, friends and last-minute additions is a great way to never show up empty handed to a holiday party or impromptu family gathering.
