5 Great Gifts to Bring to a Thanksgiving Celebration

  1. A decorative cutting board

A day dedicated to eating turkey isn’t complete without something to carve it on. There are tons of cutting board styles and options to choose from, including hardwood like cherry, walnut, beech, and those made of plastic or bamboo materials.

Cutting boards can also come in several different sizes and colors for the perfect snack presentation. Go the extra mile and get one customized to celebrate Thanksgiving or show the host you care.

  1. A Thanksgiving gift basket

Hickory Farms is famous for their gift baskets, including Thanksgiving gifts and gourmet gifts for every occasion. If you’re not sure what gift to bring your host, a delightful gift basket is a perfect way to include multiple offerings in one.

Filled with traditional Thanksgiving flavors and treats, each gift basket features impressive packaging for the ultimate gifting experience. You can enjoy the basket as you gather around the table or send it to far-away loved ones you’re missing.

  1. Your favorite wine

Wine is an excellent gift for any party but is the perfect addition to a Thanksgiving celebration, pairing perfectly with fall foods. Bring one of your favorite bottles of red or white wine or if you are unsure about the host’s preference, ask them ahead of time what their wine of choice is.


Wine will flow through the night, and so will the laughter, good times, and spirit of being together.

  1. A throw blanket

Chances are after you finish your feast, you’ll want to get some fresh air by getting outside for a walk, game of football, or post-dinner gathering around the fire.

The fall air may be chilly, but you’ll be everyone’s favorite guest if you have a comfy, cozy throw blanket in hand. A plush blanket is a perfect companion as you hold your loved ones close under the November skies.

  1. Your favorite Thanksgiving dish

If all else fails, you can’t go wrong with a little bit of comfort food. Whether it’s your Great Aunt’s time-tested green bean casserole dish, your world-famous mac ‘n’ cheese, or a simple pecan pie, your fellow guests will love your contribution. Your host will appreciate any extra dish to serve the crowd. Moreover, they will appreciate the effort you’ve taken to make their event more special.

Whatever gift or Thanksgiving offering you decide to bring, you can’t go wrong with any of the options on this list. Whether your celebration is virtual or in person, even the smallest present goes a long way in showing you care.
