Gift ideas for your Thanksgiving host

Thanksgiving dinner gift ideas

Thanksgiving is the time to show your love, gratitude, and appreciation to the special people in your life. When you are invited for Thanksgiving to a friend or family member’s home, giving them a gift can be a memorable gesture. Sonoma Lavender Co., providers of lavender products for wellness and relaxation, have you covered. Read on for a list of Thanksgiving gift ideas that will go a long way. 

Do I need to buy a gift for Thanksgiving?

It is true: most people do not expect gifts or presents for Thanksgiving. So, when they receive one, it can be a lovely surprise. Remember, you do not have to spend big bucks on these gifts. Instead, make it thoughtful, fun, or harvest-themed to show your love and gratitude. Be it a formal Thanksgiving dinner or a casual Friendsgiving, it’s always recommended to give a token of your appreciation to the hosts. So, what are the top gift ideas for Thanksgiving? 

Yummy gift ideas

Who doesn’t love some yummy treats and sweet bundles? Find the perfect harvest baskets, holiday gift nut baskets, Thanksgiving bundles and delicious platters filled with fruits, nuts, sweet treats, cheeses and more for everyone to share. Your favorite drinks can also be a lovely gift to give such as: 

1. High quality organic and sustainable coffee 
2. Beautifully packaged caramel apple tea 
3. A bottle of Prosecco 

      Thanksgiving is also a wonderful transition to Christmas. Give your hosts scrumptious chocolate bombs for those cozy yummy mugs of hot cocoa. 

      Gift baskets

      One of the most popular Thanksgiving traditions is watching the big game together with friends and family. Find gift baskets or arrangements with football cookies, apple slices dipped in chocolate, melon, fruits cut into stars – all as a tribute to the all-American sport! 

      Other gift baskets include gourmet cheese and sausage baskets, harvest baskets filled with crackers, sweet treats, fruits, and cheeses, roasted and candied nut baskets and many more. For chocolate lovers, one of the more popular gift ideas is the chocolate covered cookie gift basket!

      For the home

      One of the most wonderful gifts to give your Thanksgiving host is something special for their home.

              3. Bread-warming pouch: These pouches come with cotton blankets within which bread can be heated in the microwave. Give this to your Thanksgiving hosts for warm bread every day! 
              4. Casserole totes: For the hosts who love potlucks, give them a sturdy and functional casserole tote so they can carry their amazing dishes wherever they go. 
              5. Cheese board: A hand-crafted, tiered server for your hosts’ favorite cheeses can be the perfect Thanksgiving gift. Pair these with holiday-themed cheese spreaders.
