Thanksgiving day in Canada is the second Monday of October, which means we are just mere days away from a turkey filled weekend. If you are invited to multiple thanksgiving dinners, it can be a bit of a challenge to pick out a gift for your host/hostess, so here are just a few ideas that might help with your decision making!
- Pie: You can never have enough pie, let your hostess know in advance that you’ve got a special pie recipe in mind or grab one from a bakery. Cooking the turkey is hard enough so taking away the stress of baking is a great gift for your host!
- Wine: Wine is always a good idea. Be sure to ask your host if they prefer a red or white.
- Edible treats: sweets, fruit basket or even some seasonal nuts.
- Looseleaf tea: a great gift idea that can last a long time.
- Fall scented Candles: another awesome gift that can last throughout the holidays.
- Holiday containers: It’s incredible how frequently hosts run out of glass containers to store their thanksgiving leftovers, this is a practical gift for your host, especially if they are giving away leftovers to attendees. (bonus: place a side dish in one of the holiday containers to be added to the dinner table, your host will love you).
- Flowers: I love fall color floral arrangements and if your hostess insists that you shouldn’t bring any food, just take flowers.
- Breakfast for the next day: Bagels & Croissants because it’s unlikely that your hostess will want to cook again for a while.
