Butter cookies have been around forever, but when placed neatly on pretty plates, they do look lovely and festive don’t they? Even a box of such cookies/chocolates makes for a nice and affordable gift.

Can’t have Christmas without chocolates. See the cute little bowls with the pretzels and M&Ms? Hand out mini candy canes when your guests arrive or when they leave. At least they’ll have something to remember your party by when they wake up from the hangover.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen these before but I’m sure these gigantic beer canisters and the big buckets of daiquiri, margaritas will be a hit with the guests. Perhaps if you set them up high enough, you don’t even need to hand out glasses…… I only wonder about the taste though, being in plastic buckets.
