It’s always nice to take a gift for your hostess when you’re invited to a Thanksgiving dinner. It’s a thoughtful way to say thank you and show your appreciation for the invitation. These’re some ideas to help you come up with a gift for your hostess. Hopefully there’ll be at least one idea that seems like a good fit.
1. A Sampler Box of Tea ☕
I think this would be a wonderful gift to receive but I’ve recently developed a love for all things tea related. I know I’m not alone in this, though. Herbal teas have risen in popularity with many people beginning or ending their day with a cup of tea. A sampler box is the way to go since it contains several different flavors. It’s a thoughtful gift to give and a delight to receive.
2. A Pie 🍰 Server
Pie servers are a perfect choice for a hostess gift when you’re going to a Thanksgiving dinner. Pie is the number one dessert that’s served on this holiday. What could be more appropriate to give than a pie server? Your hostess can choose to put it right to work or tuck it away for another occasion. Either way, it’s very appropriate for the holiday.
3. Homebaked Treats 🍪
Homebaked treats are always a hit. I’ve never seen anyone who wasn’t thrilled to receive something homebaked. This’s also a very economical gift to give if you’re on a budget. You can go in so many different directions with this. You could bake a banana bread, cupcakes, cookies or even a loaf of bread. It’s a nice little treat your hostess can enjoy after everyone has gone home.
4. A Candle
Candles or tarts for a tart warmer are always well received. It’s also a gift that’s not too personal. Everyone loves to make their home smell lovely and this’s a great way to do that. Your host will remember you for your thoughtfulness every time that they light their candle. Another good thing about this gift is that candles are available for purchase practically everywhere you shop so they’re very easy to pick up last minute.
5. A Hand Soap and Lotion Set
Hand soap and lotion are a good idea for a hostess gift. They go right along with the kitchen theme which Thanksgiving is certainly centered around. Bath & Body Works has a wide variety of both of these items as well as hand sanitizer or you can find these items elsewhere. They’re nice items to make up a goodie bag 🏬 with. Stick with one scent or mix and match.
6. An Apron
Aprons are another kitchen gift you can choose. This’s an item that’s very handy to have. They’re great for covering your clothing when you want to cook without spills and splatters staining them. It’s the perfect thing when you’re trying to cook while also entertaining. Your hostess can still look their best while protecting their clothing.
7. Flowers 💐
This one may fall more on the side of a gift you would want to give a woman. If a man is hosting then you may want to choose another item from this list. But there’re some men that enjoy flowers so this’s a personal call only you can make. This’s a nice gift if your hostess wants to display them immediately or tuck them in vase to enjoy later. Either way, it’s sure to make them smile.
