WHILE THE OMICRON variant threatens to ruin or, at the very least, change Houstonians’ plans for celebrating the new year, ringing in 2022 doesn’t have to be boring. Local décor and gift shops have everything necessary for a festive and stylish fete, however big or small! Go bold with a colorful palette, or take a neutral route and bring the outdoors in. Hostess gifts might include a curved-bottom ice bucket from Coolin’ Curve; insert your favorite bottle of bubbly into the container without fighting to get the bottle to the bottom of the ice. Cheers!
