Thanksgiving Gifts for the Host
While most holidays involve a gathering a friends and family, no other holiday celebrates the art of entertaining and home cooking more than Thanksgiving. From the small intimate gatherings, to the large scale family reunions, this holiday is all about showing our thanks to the bounty of the season and the people who take the time to whip up a 5 star meal. What I love about Thanksgiving even more than the meal itself, is the preparation and kitchen full of chatter even before the table is set.
I’ll actually be attending multiple Thanksgiving gatherings this year, and hosting one of my own, so I know how much work the host and hostess do to prepare for the big day. Whether you’re staying home with friends, or traveling to visit loved ones, here are a few thoughtful gifts to bring with you along with your appetite!
