Show up to a party empty-handed and you're off Santa's list. What to bring:
Fun Ornaments like this beaded minisweater; $14 at Anthropologie stores. While you're there, grab the fabulous fish ornament for your favorite outdoorsman.
Wineglass Charms Everyone else will bring wine. Your gift'll help tell all those wineglasses apart. These drunken-reindeer charms (on, Guzzler, on, Smashen...) are $28 at L.A.'s trendy Kitson boutique; 310-859-2652.
Cocktail Sugar These flavored sugars are the perfect complement to a Christmas cocktail. Try the holiday flavors--peppermint and cranapple; $11.95 each at sugar daisy.com.
