Thanksgiving is the day when one or two luck individuals are lucky enough to make food for a massive amount of people. May I suggest that if you’re going to someones house, that you could bring a nice little gift in addition to whatever food or drink you were asked to bring along. Here are some idea’s that your host just might enjoy.
Mason Jar Filled With Pumpkin Seeds
This is a great fall DIY gift that is simple and still very considerate. See laurenconrad.com for recipes and spice suggestions.
Wine with Decorative Tags
Try these holiday printables, and add them to what ever wine you wish. I highly recommend Beaujolais Nouveau.
DIY Pilgrim Apron
Okay, I love this Pilgrim Apron from Danielle and Clayton. I think I would be ecstatic if someone made this for me. I would totally use it all year long. Is that weird?
I don’t know about you, but in our house we must watch ‘Planes Trains and Automobiles’ prior to each Thanksgiving. It’s a classic. So I recommend gifting this, or some other Thanksgiving related films. Besides this one, I prefer ‘Dutch’, ‘Home For The Holidays’, ‘Son in Law’ and ‘The Myth of Fingerprints’.
Be sure you find out the number of guests, but once you do, you can make these cute little placemats courtesy of Show Me Cute.
Ear of Corn Popcorn Gift
Craft Gossip came up with this great gesture. With this your hosts can keep it as decor, or make their own popcorn when the time comes.
Leave it up to Martha Stewart to come up with this oh so pretty autumn inspired floral arrangement. Who wouldn’t love receiving flowers from a dinner guest? Plus, how nice of a centerpiece would this be?
DIY Gift of Special Tea
If your hosts are tea lovers, then you might want to think about making them a special batch. I recommend something soothing so that they can relax after a long day of cooking and cleaning.
Make your own decorative candles just for this special occasion. I think this tutorial is a great suggestion.
I Am Thankful For…
Make something for all of the guest to write down what they’re thankful for. It might be fun to discuss at dinner, or for the hosts to keep for themselves. BHG has lots of great idea’s like this.
