Thank you to Granite Gold for partnering with me on this post!

With Thanksgiving right around the corner and the hustle and bustle of the holidays already upon us, it can be easy to forget simple things like a hostess gift when you are headed to Friendsgiving, your family’s Thanksgiving, or other holiday parties! However, taking that extra step to think ahead and show appreciation for the time and resources your hostess spent planning,cooking, and preparing really goes a long way! Last year’s gift guide with hostess gift ideas was one of the most popular posts at the holidays! You can see it here.

I can promise this will not be the last of the gift guides this Christmas season! I have already published my favorite gift ideas for toddlers and I am working to finalize a men’s gift guide, baby and new mom gift guide, and several others! Stay tuned!

I think y’all know I love practical gifts! While it is always fun to find cute gift ideas for others, there is also something very thoughtful about a gift that is useful! You might have heard me talk about Granite Gold recently. They are a premium house cleaning brand that I have been using for months! Their products help keep my kitchen under control amidst the hot mess express of a 3 year old and newborn. They even pass the test of Eric who is Mr. Clean!

The Granite Gold Clean & Shine® is a granite cleaner and granite polish in one! The power of Granite Gold Daily Cleaner® is fused with the strength of Granite Gold Polish® for a quick and easy formula that cleans and polishes granite, marble, travertine and all other natural-stone and quartz surfaces. It quickly removes all types of spills and soils, leaves a fresh citrus scent, and adds shine and luster. PERFECT for the hostess with the mostess who will have a big mess to clean after her guests leave! I think the Clean & Shine works perfect in a gift basket with a few other fun hostess gift ideas. These would even be great to have on hand for stocking stuffers for mom!
