I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving and an even MORE fabulous Black Friday! Did you grab any great deals? I got a couple of small things I’d been trying to resist for a while…all for myself. Whatever, we can’t aaaaaaalways be selfless!
Each week, I'm taking on a new holiday shopping challenge and heading to my local Marshalls store to share my finds!

The season is packed with parties, from your in-law's house to your office party to your best friend's holiday bash. So what do you bring that's not only a great gift but also affordable? Here are 10 gift ideas that will impress every hostess or host on your list - and I found them all for under $30!
