We have not met a holiday party that we don’t like, but our favorite holiday party is a gift exchange party. What can be better than celebrating the season and politely (or not so politely) vying for the best gift with your girlfriends! Every gift swap has different rules and different price limits, so we picked out some of our favorite fashion and home items in a range of pricing.

A few notes on the items above. We love Bauble Bar because they have so many great pieces and it comes with a cute gift box. Paper Source has a great gift section and you can grab a gift bag while you are there. The malachite coasters from Decorum also come in a valet bowl. Decorum also has great trays. We especially love the Granada, Monaco & Penobscot patterns.
If you find yourself without gift on the day of the party, run to the Dry Bar or Starbucks and pick up a gift card and you will be set!
