It’s that time of year, when everyone loves being merry with family and friends at holiday parties. Instead of bringing the traditional bottle of wine, try going the extra mile with a unique hostess gift from Patina. Your hosts will love receiving a gift that can be shared with partygoers and used throughout the season.
For a holiday staple, try locally made peppermint bark from B.T. McElrath Chocolatier. One piece costs only $1.95, so you can bring as many of these tasty treats as you would like to the party.
To light up your host’s home, Patina offers several seasonally scented candles from Illume, including balsam and cedar, woodfire and spruce for $8.95–$16.95.
A Minnesota-shaped marble cutting board ($34), a Patina exclusive, makes the perfect addition to any kitchen. Try spreading maple pumpkin butter ($7.95) from Stonewall Kitchen on crackers for a quick appetizer to share. Mulling spice from Urban Accents for $12.95 adds a special holiday flair to wine or apple cider.
