I will be the first to admit that I can be particularly difficult to shop for. I have extremely vivid ideas of the things I need in my life and what I don't, the quality and functionality of these items, and of course their aesthetic appeal. Sounding a little hard to please eh? 

Knowing this about myself, and having met a couple of the same breed, I have put together the Holiday Gift Guide For The Modern Woman. Classic, fun and purposeful gift ideas, including a few sophisticated upgrades of things we already own- intended to please even the most difficult to shop for.

We are bombarded with Holiday Gift Guides at this time of year, and I know it can be overwhelming. So please take this package of curated goods as a form of inspiration, not because we must give, but because it's the time of year to appreciate the significant people in our lives (that we may not take the time to appreciate on the daily).

For the next couple of weeks I will be delivering Holiday Gift Guides which will include something for just about everyone in your life- a gift from me to you. Today, we kick it off with the Holiday Gift Guide For The Host. Here are some thoughtful ideas to leave with your gracious hosts this holiday season.
