Last-Minute Holiday Hosting Made Easy With Amazon

Amazon helps you deliver smiles to your friends and family this season, transforming you into a holiday hero!

These four simple items from Amazon will save your sanity! I recommend ordering 2-3 of each….


Because first, they are lifesavers for the stress that comes from hosting unexpected guests this season. When we had a few friends “surprise” us with a sweet Christmas housewarming stop-over. (We’ve been in the new house only 2 weeks!) I was able to reach in the fridge and pull out some salami, cheese, jam and berries for a quick and easy – but beautiful – spread.

Second, you can’t show up to a holiday party empty handed! This little bundle of good Southern graciousness would bring a smile to even the Grinchiest of hostesses! It’s easy, it’s functional, it’s pretty…voila!

Whenever [your guests] feel that you are stressed, the fun stops. – Ina Garten, from The Kitchn

This year, it’s time to celebrate (not stress about) the holidays!

Listen, behind every successful mom (and dad) there is community – a village – helping you to hold it together, especially this time of year. Amazon is my village, people.

Amazon is committed to #DeliveringSmiles this holiday season.


With low prices, great deals, vast selection, innovative ways to shop when and where you want, and convenient doorstep delivery!. All Amazon customers in the U.S. can enjoy free shipping on hundreds of millions of items, and this holiday season Amazon has extended the free shipping cutoff with no minimum purchase through December 18 for orders that will arrive in time for Christmas. Hello – that’s the largest free shipping selection in the country! Plus, Amazon Prime members can get free same-day delivery and one-day delivery on three million items in 10,000 cities and towns.

Go treat yourself to a few stress-relieving items right now- one for you and one for the hostess who is expecting you next week, with her own bit of stress. Then kick back, grab a bottle of wine, throw on White Christmas, and resolve to enjoy yourself this year!
