If you are attending Thanksgiving dinner at a relative’s or a friend’s house, you may have been told that you need not bring anything. Still, many of us wish to bring a little something along as a Thanksgiving gift, just to show our appreciation and holiday spirit. Here are some easy and affordable Thanksgiving dinner appreciation gifts.
A scented candle is very affordable and makes a delightful Thanksgiving gift to give. They come in fabulous fall scents like pumpkin, spice, cinnamon, vanilla, evergreen, pine, apple, Christmas cookies, pecan pie and so many fun holiday choices. Most people love scented candles and they are perfect for the fall season. A fragrant and fabulous gift. They sell these everywhere, including the Dollar store. You can’t go wrong with this great gift idea.
You may not think a welcome mat is a nice gift but, actually, it is! The holiday season brings lots of traffic through a home and most everyone can use a new welcome mat for their front or back porch. You can find a lovely holiday theme outdoor welcome mat and bring it with you, to your Thanksgiving dinner destination. You will be surprised at how many people will love and need this thoughtful and very handy gift. It will be used. They sell these at Dollar stores, Walmart and Kmart. They are very affordable.
A box of cookies, chocolate covered cherries or a popcorn bin are all great Thanksgiving gifts to give. When you show up with one or all of these, you can be certain, they will be eaten. It does not matter if they are used on Thanksgiving, during dinner, or after. What matters is the thought and when the time comes for a snack, these gifts do come in handy! They will be enjoyed. They are also affordable and easy Thanksgiving gifts to give. No wrapping required.
A fall decoration makes a lovely Thanksgiving gift to give. If you have no money, try filling a basket with gold spray painted pine cones and fall leaves. That is a craft that the kids can help you with. You can also find great vases and flower arrangements for next to nothing at the Dollar store.
Fall decorated potholders, dish towels, cups and plates can also be found at the local Dollar store. These gifts are wonderful to have on hand for Thanksgiving dinner. Your host will always appreciate extra plates and cups. Wether you choose paper or plastic, this gift is nice for a host to receive. Most of us can always use a decorative dish towel. The more, the merrier and less messier.
A holiday music CD is an extra special Thanksgiving gift. Your host may love to have a new music CD to play while entertaining. These can also be found for little money at Walmart. Many other stores have great sales on holiday music and when you spot them, stock up! They make fun gifts to give!
Bring a few boxes of hot cocoa or hot chocolate mix. Lots of folks love their hot chocolate, especially with Thanksgiving dinner desserts! I have also spotted some instant cappuccino mixes in my local Dollar store. They make great gifts, too. Guests get thirsty and these drinks are winners!
Bringing a little token of thanks for your host of the family or friend’s Thanksgiving dinner is a sweet thing to do. They will love it. Show your holiday spirit. Happy Thanksgiving!
