Teleflora Bouquet Delivery Service (fall bouquets starting at $29.99; teleflora.com)
In an exclusive offer for CNN readers, flower delivery service Teleflora is offering 20% off any bouquet sitewide using the code “TFCNN20.” When using this service, you can send flowers prior to the party or a few days after.

Teleflora offers a wide variety of seasonal bouquets year-round with same-day and next-day delivery on all offerings.
While Teleflora is based in Los Angeles, the business has over 13,000 member florists throughout North America, plus an additional 20,000 affiliated florists outside North America. This means you can give the gift of gorgeous blooms just about anywhere.
Vacu Vin Wine Saver ($13.25; amazon.com)
This product from Vacu Vin is a total wine saver — literally. A No. 1 best-selling product on Amazon, this affordable gadget works wonders to remove air from opened bottles of wine so the wine stays fresh for up to a week. This product set, which comes with one black wine saver vacuum pump and two grey vacuum bottle stoppers, has received close to 3,000 Amazon customer reviews from satisfied shoppers, who gave it a 4.5- out of 5-star average rating.
Charcoal Mug “Mugr” ($60; kaufmann-mercantile.com)
If your host appreciates home decor and values design, this mug will bring a smile to his or her face. Available in two colors – charcoal or “frost” (white) – these chic mugs are made from fine Japanese ceramic. The wooden handle is made from walnut for the charcoal color and beech for the frost option. Perhaps what we love most is the large handle that fits comfortably in your hand.
Ghirardelli Chocolate Signature Classic Gift Box ($19.95; ghirardelli.com)
Have a friend who’s a chocolate lover? If so, this Ghirardelli Chocolate gift set is the way to go. Straight from one of the world’s most famous chocolate brands, this sampler pack includes an 18-piece assortment of rich chocolate squares. Inside the beautifully packaged pack, there are eight pieces of milk chocolate caramel, five dark chocolate mint and five dark chocolate sea salt caramel bites for a selection of dessert-like treats.
Kaufmann Soy Candle (Citrus Patchouli) ($40, originally $45; kaufmann-mercantile.com)
A nice candle is such a simple way to set the mood and tone in your home. Not only that, but lighting a candle — especially in the winter — can instantly make a space feel more cozy and luxurious. We’re big fans of this Kaufmann soy candle (which is on discount now) for its pleasant citrus smell and chic design. Made from a combination of hand-poured beeswax and soy, this high-quality candle can burn for up to 65 hours — meaning your host will get plenty of use out of it.
