If you're excited to attend a Thanksgiving dinner this year, be it a formal family gathering or a more casual Friendsgiving, you don't want to show up empty-handed—especially when you know your host or hostess has been cooking, preparing for guests, and going the extra mile to create a great entertaining experience.
It’s always a great idea to show your gratitude and appreciation for loved ones by adding little touches to your gifting. Think about what they like! Of course, a great guest never shows up to Thanksgiving empty-handed. Wherever you're going or whoever you're shopping for, you're sure to find the perfect gift idea that shows your thanks with this handy Bread And Butter Basket Company list!
🍂 Smell The Holidays!
Making a personalized gift can be a bit complicated because you often have to look specifically where to buy it, but with festive scented candles there’s something for everyone! Since there are specialized stores, websites and local artisans all around the Edmonton area, there’s no shortage of places to pick up a candle that smells of fresh pumpkin pie or crisp fall mornings. Each of these candle sources offer a great selection of beautifully festive candles with unique and varied aromas that are sure to please! The best part of all? You don't have to give a large candle, many places offer scented candles that are small and come with different fragrances to choose from.
🍂 Dessert, Anyone?
Is Thanksgiving a potluck this year? If so, ask if you can do dessert! There are SO many great Thanksgiving dessert ideas out there that range from easy to complex in difficulty, so there’s something for every dessert-maker! Taking over dessert might be intimidating for some folks, but we promise you that bringing a deliciously festive dessert will not only bring smiles to the faces of the other guests but will also alleviate another kitchen task from your host! Plus, when it comes to Thanksgiving cooking, you can't go wrong with a classic pumpkin pie!
🍂 Gift Basket Goodies
This thoughtful gift is sure to send your sincerest thanks most memorably and deliciously. Express your gratitude to your host or hostess with a hand-crafted gift basket, brimming with gourmet goodies and perfectly savoury pairings. Each of our gourmet baskets are carefully assembled and accentuated with tasteful wrapping, while also offering an option to make it a personalized gift. You can even customize some of the items in your gift basket so it truly becomes memorable! Even if you can’t attend your usual Thanksgiving party this year, consider sending a decadent gift arrangement in the mail to your loved ones! (we can help with this!)
🍂 Bring The Holiday Cheers!
Alcohol, such as wine, champagne, beer, or quality hard liquor and other spirits are almost always going to be a gift that your host will welcome. If you already know what kind of alcohol your host prefers, your job is easy. However, if you’re not sure, there’s nothing wrong with phoning your host to ask beforehand if there is any particular beverage that will enhance the food or the party itself.
🍂 Bring The Bloom!
Some people are always tempted to arrive to a Thanksgiving get-together with food. Sometimes this isn't the best idea unless you were asked to bring something specific (or if it's a potluck). So why not change it up with a stunning flower arrangement? With gorgeous blooms like sunflowers and chrysanthemums in season, bringing a nicely arranged bouquet that is layered with rich autumn colours is sure to get everyone talking. Plus, it’s a little something for the host to admire and remember for several days after!
