Whew, we’re winded from our party to party to party schedule of late. Yes, it’s been our version of wash, rinse, repeat but the holiday celebration cycle. And alas, there have been a few occasions when we were perplexed as to what we should bring as a host gift. Perish the thought of showing up toting in a bottle of vino we picked up on our way.

Thankfully we hit afloat’s Giftmas party recently. The event rose a glass in honor of their collaboration with 12 influencers, 12 local stores, and 12 charities for Giftmas. If you’re not familiar with afloat it’s the on-demand gifting app that launched in Dallas last February. And the founder has a great pedigree we must say — Sarah-Allen Preston was a PaperCity intern back in the day.

Preston realized that gifting is an art form and the hunt for finding the perfect present can be daunting. Her easy-to-shop platform is all about connecting you with all the merchants and retailers to know.

Download the afloat app, click on Giftmas, and shop the exclusive gifts from the following, and benefiting the following charities:

  1. Interior designer Javier Burkle x Blueprint and benefitting Dwell With Dignity
  2. Stylist Ashley Holland x Talulah & Hess and benefitting Make-A-Wish Foundation
