Now these folks clearly threw a great party!

Thanksgiving’s come and gone and the holiday gift buying frenzy is in full swing. Don’t panic…Krrb’s got you covered with a multitude of great gift ideas for all of those special someone’s (and even the slightly less special ones) in your life. We’ll be bringing you a whole series of posts chock full of ideas to help you go secondhand (and handmade) for the holidays this year… all inspired by offerings on Krrb!

First up, here are a few things you might want to buy for the people in your life who love to throw a party.

Decking The Halls


Step away from the store bought and into the world of handmade with these beautiful wooden ornaments from Noble Goods in Brooklyn.

Nothing like a beautifully decorated tree to let your guests know what time of year it is. And there is always room on the tree for another ornament—the more the merrier! The kind of gift that can be put to use straight away.

Setting The Mood


Nothing says party like a bunch of music from Iran!

iPod playlists are so… 2009. Why not really set the stage for the party by giving a curated selection of music all from a single place (Iran, perchance?) or even by one particular musician or band (all Prince night, anyone?).

Serve It Up With Style

Nothing like a little orange serving set to brighten up those long winter months.

One can never have too many serving dishes, and what nuts-and-chip loving host isn’t going to want to stick their finger foods into these babies?

Keeping Cool

wine fridge

Keep your wine at the perfect temperature with this wine cooler. Oh did I say your wine? I meant your friend's wine. Because this is a gift, right?

Who doesn’t want a wine cooler to keep those fabulous bottles of wine you splurged on at the perfect temperature? And this one makes a great gift because it’s compact enough to fit into a small space (hello New York City apartments!)

The Life Of The Party

shot glass

A party isn't really a party till the shot glasses come out.

Because lets be honest, the term “holiday party” is synonymous with “hangover” and “excessively embarrassing behavior.” Two things that are much more easily accomplished when the shot glasses have come into play. So give your pals some nice vintage ones. This way—at least in the photos—everyone will look a bit more chic holding the instruments of their destruction.

Check these out from Stache’s Krrb corner.

A Little Protection


Lovely letterpress coasters from Pepper Press in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Help your buddies keep their tabletops ring-free by giving the gift of coasters. And make sure they open your gift before the party starts…
