9 Ways Not To Show Up Empty-Handed to Holiday Parties

The Problem

You’re in demand on the holiday party circuit. You feel obligated to bring a hostess gift, but money is tight.

The Solution

LearnVest has suggestions for nine great, chic gifts for $16. You’ll be the hit of the party and still have money left over for glittery accessories of your own.

Note that shipping can push up the costs. So, if you find something similar in a store, buy it in person. Otherwise, check back often to see if any of these online retailers join the free shipping fray. (In particular, National Free Shipping day is on the 17th. We're anxious to see if any of these retailers participate!)
