Amy D. is a local line that sells sass and convenience by the Mason jar. This kit includes cloth napkins, coffee sleeves and magnets. It’s like a glass stocking.

Coasters are an easy hostess gift because they’re fun and desirable but not sentimental. We love these Ohio-centric ones made by Central Ohio’s Elegant Elliephant.

Here’s a good gift for the party thrown by a friend with a sense of humor and a perfect gift for an ugly Christmas sweater party host. The three-pack is composed of Camelot’s White Trash Wine, Trailer Trash Wine and Just Plain Trash Wine. Hey, y’all! It’s Christmas!

Shopping for a work party’s host or hostess? Get chocolate; it’s safe but special. Try Krema Nut Company’s crunchy take on the classic Ohio peanut butter and chocolate. Bonus: Taste test before you buy.
