Yes, you can always bring wine when you’re heading out to a holiday party and you’ll never go wrong. But wouldn’t it be nice to show up with something a little different this year? Here are some of our favourite little gifts for when you need a not-too pricey but lovely thing to give to your child’s teacher or the hostess of this weekend’s holiday party.

I love these graphic West Elm napkins – they’re festive without being too Ho Ho Ho, you know? Set of 4 100% cotton napkins for $17.22

These cute little cooking-themed tree ornaments would make a great teacher’s gift. Because you know no more mugs, right? $19.95 for a set of three from Williams-Sonoma.

How great is this set of cheese tools? I love the hefty scale of them. I love the price even more. A perfect gift for a host. $17.94 for a set of three from Crate and Barrel.

The packaging on these adorable tins of hot chocolate are sweet enough you won’t need to wrap them. $15 at Indigo.
