It's that time of year again!
The leaves are falling, the air is crisp, and you're racking your brain for the perfect hostess gift to bring to your annual Thanksgiving feast.
Never fear, we're here to help make your decision easier.
Here's a List of Gift Ideas That Are Sure to Impress
We also listed gifts that you should probably avoid if you want to stay on your host's good side.
Wine: A classic hostess gift for a reason.
Bring a nice bottle of red or white or go the extra mile and get a bottle of sparkling wine or champagne. Your host will definitely appreciate it!
Flowers: A beautiful bouquet is always a welcomed sight, especially after cooking an enormous Thanksgiving feast.
Plus, it's a nice way to brighten up the table. Just be sure to check with your host first to see if they have any allergies.
Chocolate: What's not to love about chocolate?
It's delicious, it's decadent, and it shows that you were thinking about your hostess but isn't so personal that it might make your hosts uncomfortable. Just be sure to get something good quality... no one likes cheap chocolate.
A fruit basket: What says "thankful" better than a healthy snack?
Plus, it can double as decoration on the table. (Just make sure to stay away from fruits that are known to stain, like pomegranates or blueberries.) You can't go wrong with a classic!
A scented candle: This is always a safe bet.
Who doesn't love a nice-smelling candle? Just be careful not to choose anything too strong or overwhelming.
Cheap Wine: Remember, this is a thank-you gift for your hostess, so don't show up with the bottom-shelf wine from your local grocery store.
Trust me, she'll notice.
Store-Bought Pie: Yes, pumpkin pie is delicious.
But unless you're confident in your baking skills, it's best to leave the pie-making to the professionals. Besides, your hostess has probably been slaving over a hot stove all day and doesn't need another dessert taking up space in her fridge.
Nothing: Seriously, don't show up empty-handed.
And don't pretend you forgot or plead ignorance!
Your hostess has gone out of her way to cook a huge meal and invite everyone over to her house... the least you can do is bring a little something to show your appreciation.
A simple thank-you card will do if you're really stumped for ideas.
When it comes to finding the perfect hostess gift for Thanksgiving, there are some definite Dos and definite Don'ts that you should keep in mind.
With these helpful tips, I'm sure you'll be able to find something that your hostess will love... and that won't end up in the re-gift pile come Christmas time. 😏🎄🎁
