3 Gift Giving Ideas for the Host on Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is the perfect time to reflect on the past year and all that you are thankful for. Personally, I am grateful for many things, including family, friends, and clients who have supported me on this journey. What a year it has been because of them!

Thanksgiving is also a time to gather together with others. Have you made your plans for Thanksgiving? This all-American holiday is a traditional day for celebrating fall, family and friendship with food, fun, and—a lot of times—football. 

Whether you are getting together with family, neighbors, or friends, remember to take along a gift for your host and hostess. 


Why Give a Gift on Thanksgiving? 

Thanksgiving is all about “giving thanks,” right? Like at any other time, a gift on Thanksgiving is a special way to show your appreciation for being included in the festivities. No doubt, your host or hostess has worked hard planning, cleaning, and preparing to make everyone feel comfortable and welcome on Thanksgiving.

It is so nice to be included and, especially, to be invited into someone’s home, so consider bringing a gift along to show your gratitude. Now, what should you give?

3 Gift Giving Ideas for Thanksgiving 

Gift #1—Food and Drink

First, consider taking a gift of food or drink for your host or hostess to enjoy AFTER the party is over. Maybe a sweet treat like chocolate, gourmet cupcakes, or artisan cookies. Or, bring a savory selection of dips, cheese and crackers. Wine is another great option!

Your host and hostess might appreciate breakfast for the next morning. Give the gift of bagels and cream cheese, pumpkin bread, or a breakfast casserole. This would be a nice treat after a late night of hosting.

Gift #2—Flowers and Plants

Bring flowers or a seasonal plant, like mums, to thank the host and hostess. These can add to the event and be a cheerful pop of color for days to come. If you decide on flowers, go ahead and arrange them in a vase or container. That way, your busy host or hostess doesn’t have to stop what they are doing to put the flowers in water. 

Gift #3—A Curated Gift Box

We all know how wonderful AND exhausting hosting can be! Why not give a gift of self-care that can be enjoyed after the holiday?

What If You Can’t Make It to the Party? (H2)

If this holiday season finds you unable to gather with family and dear friends, especially those who are out of town, one of our gift boxes can let them know that you are thinking of them even while you are away from each other.

Beyond a gift for your host, our boxes are perfect to give to anyone at Thanksgiving—from a special friend to your boss. (We think you’ll like it so much that you will want to get one for yourself, too!)
