Weekly Spotlight: Thanksgiving Hostess Gift Ideas

Wine Bottle Sacks

Hosting Thanksgiving dinner can be joyful and fun, but we all know the responsibilty and attention to detail required to make the celebration a hit. If you aren’t hosting this year and traveling to the home of a friend or family member, consider these gift ideas and give thanks to your hostess.

Two gifts in one, a wine bottle sack adds flair and presents the hostess with an extra sweet treat for herself.

A great way to give thanks and show your appreciation is with a primitive sign featuring a message of sincerity. “It’s a Wonderful Life” is inspired by the holiday movie, but is also a charming way to express your attitude towards loved ones, especially a hostess.

Seasonal gifts are also perfect for your Thanksgiving hostess; fall home accents complement the warmth and comfort surrounding the holidays. Our Sugar Maple Iridescent Ornament is handmade and crafted out of a real leaf. Because of this, each is unique, making it a one-of-a-kind gift. Its shimmering orange surface glimmers among fall colors and adds cheerfulness throughout the year.

Flowers for the Hostess

Additionally, we recommend a Housewarmer Jar Candle for giving your hostess the gift of cinnamon and pumpkin pie, even when she is not throwing a party.

Finally, a go-to gift for your hostess: a lovely bouquet of flowers. They can be seasonal, her favorite or a completely whimsical arrangement. A decorative vase in her style is a special bonus, and will add an extra layer of thoughtfulness to this gift.

For more gift ideas, check out our gift giving guide, and don’t forget the best hostess gift of all: saying thank you.
