Holiday shopping is stressful enough without having to think about all the extras that this season brings—like what to bring to an office potluck or how much to tip your bikini waxer. Figuring out where to find a suitable offering for friends and family gracious enough to open their homes for Thanksgiving or holiday parties shouldn't be added to this list.
In anticipation of the season's packed social calendar to come, we've mapped out 32 places where you can pick up gifts for hosts and hostesses this holiday season, from a strong selection of liquor stores, flower shops, and yummy treat stores like Papabubble and Milk Bar to places that are a little more out of the box—because if everyone else is bringing wine, then you should bring some extra cork stoppers.
