The 12 Days of Holiday Gift Guides: The Party Animal

Today's gift guide is the last of the series and it's all about the season's parties, especially the big one on New Year's Eve. I've got some of the most festive party-perfect finds, either for your own celebrations, or to gift to your most fun-loving friends.

Gear up for a special night with a pretty gold mask bottle opener, sparking cocktail party picks, metallic lace crowns, and an ultra-luxe disco ball. There's never a better time to get really decked out in pieces like this dusty pink faux fur jacket, a glam pair of embellished silver heels, and feathering beaded statement earrings. Add even more sparkle with a lilac sequin mini bag and matching iridescent phone case, both from Skinnydip, or these shimmering hair glitter sticks from Free People. And what's a party without some treats? This Rebecca Minkoff-created limited edition Chandon with some champagne and strawberries macarons from Dana's Bakery sound absolutely perfect.

Nothing says "life of the party" like some festive duds. A green velvet blazer, balloon print tie, party cup cufflinks, and bronze oxfords, plus a spritz of Viktor and Rolf's Spicebomb, send that message loud and clear. Every party animal needs the right bar essentials, like these encouraging bottle openers, some stylish sceptor cocktail picks, and the pièce de résistance, a rolling cooler that is as sleek as it is functional. JT's own Sauza 901 tequila along with some chocolate almonds parading as martini olives get the night started on a tasty note, while a deco-style wireless speaker and copper plated dice set help up the entertainment factor.

Do you have any exciting New Year's Party plans?
