When the season of giving rolls around, sometimes (all the time) we're stumped with what to give. How many times can you give a candle, a bottle of wine, a coffee table book (although these are all great options when you need a last-minute gift)?
But this year, Reese Witherspoon has heard our cries and has come to the rescue with her recommended holiday picks from Crate & Barrel.
As the company's brand ambassador, Reese Witherspoon has selected items from the seasonal collection that range in function and design. However, they all have a similar overarching theme to them, and that's to help celebrate the holidays through stylish home decor.
And the actress loves sharing how she enjoys entertaining during the most wonderful time of the year. In her new book "Whiskey in a Teacup," Reese talks about her annual holiday dinner party and a deep love for hosting. "Dinner parties are one of my favorite ways to spend an evening," says Reese. "I love everything about them, including the planning, and I pay attention when I go to great parties so that I can improve on my own."
From elegant champagne glasses and a trivet that spells out "Joy" to a classic cocktail shaker or metal ice bucket, Reese's picks reflect her love for entertaining friends and family through good food and drink.
See below for our favorites from Reese's Crate & Barrel picks to gift a loved one or yourself. And as Reese says, "Finding the perfect gift for someone I love? That's my idea of holiday magic."
