If you need a gorgeous hostess gift look no further than Silverwood Gallery. From festive tea towels, serving pieces, cute holiday fabric coasters to entertaining and recipe books they will have something that you'll love so much you'll want to "accidentally" leave it at home to keep for yourself! They have ornaments, glassware plus holiday candles that come with their own ornaments, and these great initial wine bottle stops (only $8.50). Everything they have is reasonable, seasonable, and comes in great holiday packaging! Plus, starting tomorrow (Thursday) they are offering 40% off ALL Holiday items (also they are having sales on other items as well)! To read more about our love for Silverwood, click here.


The Saratoga Farmer's Market will be open on Saturday from 9am-1pm at their indoor location at Division Street School, and it is a great place to get some last minute gifts as well! Besides fresh food including locally grown greens, meats and seasonal vegetables you can find handmade jewelry made by local designers like Frenchy Loeb, handmade jams, Santa Claus cookies, pies, cookies and sweets, eggnog and so much more! They'll also be open for last minute hostess gifts or yummy party supplies on New Year’s Eve Day, Dec. 31st.


We LOVE The Body Lounge's "Gift for THEM, gift for YOU!" promotion! You can enjoy up to 30% OFF Gift Certificates for them and receive a complementary Spa Service for yourself! (Choose from Complementary Service Menu, nine options), definitely a gift that keeps on giving! What better way to de-stress after the holidays?
