Welcome to The Entertaining House. We do hope you'll pour yourself a cup of tea or a glass of wine and linger for a while!

Are you in a present pinch?

J.mcLaughlin has the best items for you last minute or idea-less shoppers. The following items are all under $150.



We have a great selection of holiday and cashmere socks. A perfect little stocking stuffer.



These adorable gloves have detachable fingers for those of us whom are addicted to our iPhones and Blackberries... $120





These bomber hats are all the rage. We have a huge selection of fabrics and colors. These hats are available in women and men's sizes. $125



These dopp kits are simply too good to pass up. At $45 a piece you can fill them for your mate!




I just picked up this Aiken bag in blue for myself. It's a gorgeous and practical bag that is available for just $98 in the patterns below. We also carry it in a solid, mustard, tan and brown.





We have a huge selection of gloves. These horsebit lambswool ones are my favorites and very reasonable at $80 a pair. One customer said yesterday, they were very Hermes-like in design. They are also available in purple and chocolate brown.





Our silk sashes make lovely scarves and belts. They are available in the same designs as the Aiken bag as well as some that I have highlighted below. A fabulous gift at just $55.









Our silk scarves are exceptional. Each one is a piece of art. Each is silk screened with up to 40 different patterns per scarf. The edges are hand rolled. We have the Hermes quality without the exorbitant price tag. These scarves are truly gifts to be treasured and an incredible quality at just $115 a piece.





Men need their whimsical Christmas socks too. These are $48 a pair.



We also have a fabulous assortment of men's tartan and solid Christmas belts for just $38... perhaps a red belt for his Jolly Rogers?






I don't know about yours, but my father is hard to shop for. I actually think he would love the bomber hat, but I could also see him in one of these wool fedoras for just $98.





My husband would love this wool and cashmere baseball cap which is available for $78. I'm contemplating getting him the matching cashmere and woo scarf for $125.




I'm still completely bamboozled over this darling clutch. A great present for your mother or grandmother... yourself or me! Clutch is available for $150.




I have a friend who gives her father a new Christmas tie every year. The wool ones are $55 and the silk ones below are just $65.




We have a great selection of cuff links for $145.



You can't leave out Man's Best Friend! Find Fido a lovely collar and leash, each for $25.



This peppermint hot fudge sauce from The Naptime Chef is sinfully delicious and at just $10 a jar makes a wonderful hostess gift or just keep a few of them in your pantry for future entertaining purposes!




These cashmere scarves will brighten anyone's day, especially at $80.



I have my eye on these faux fur collars. They look fantastic when worn with sweaters or as a collar to a winter coat. They make a lovely gift and are just $95.




These Jacquard glasses holders are fun and different and just $32



These rabbit fur scarves are a fun way to dress up any holiday wardrobe. The black scarf is $75 and the smaller white scarf is $60.


A true Preppy gentleman just loves his bow-ties. Our gorgeous selection will just set you back $45!

And we have some pretty nice boxers as well! $38
