Holiday Party Picks & Hostess Gift Ideas

Thank you to Walmart for sponsoring this post!

Party picks on a budget!
Today's round-up is all from, from the perfect plaid scarf to the cutest winter jammies! Everything is holiday-party ready, whether you're looking for a cute outfit, a great gift or a chic home accent when entertaining at home.

1. Dress: A sweaterdress is the best way to stay warm while still dressing up. This one comes in 6 versatile colors!

2. Bag: Love the suede look of this bag. Great for everyday yet elegant enough for going out.

3. Coat: Nothing says Christmas like a red coat. But you can wear this all season long. Such a chic statement piece.

4. Over-the-Knee Boots: I just ordered these! Can't beat the price - under $20! I'll report back when they arrive.

5. Scarf: This plaid is such a classic! Pair it with a sweaterdress and over the knee boots.

6. Candle: You know I'm obsessed with the Better Homes & Gardens collection. This glimmering candle would make a great hostess gift.

7. Pillow: I recently bought 4 outdoor pillows with this print and they're perfect for my space. I have them on the living room couch, one in my office and another in the bedroom! Seriously didn't know a pillow could make me so happy LOL.

8. Pajamas: These are by Maurices, another new Walmart fashion partner! There's a running joke in my house about bears ever since I saw a black bear in our neighbor's driveway, too, so these are perfect for me!

9. Moscow Mule Mug: Another great gift idea! Because everyone loves rose gold and a cocktail.

10. Boots: I own winter boots by this brand (these ones) and am so impressed, might get these cozy boots next! You can wear them around the house, to the mailbox, or out for brunch!

11. Earrings: Designer vibes for just $10.50! Update pieces you already own with these statement making earrings and a red lip.

12. Coat: I love everything about this coat. The color, the wrap belt, the faux fur trim!
