Thanksgiving Gift Ideas

November 25, 2004

The highlight of Thanksgiving is a bountiful meal where families and friends gather to enjoy such mouth-watering favorites as: turkey, mashed potatoes, cornbread, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. While many families have special recipes and traditions that are constant from year to year, others are more experimental; interested in the newest trends in turkey preparation or an offbeat dessert. Either way, it's not uncommon for preparations to begin several days or weeks before the feast. Commemorating the very first Thanksgiving in Plymouth, Massachusetts, people are as thankful for an abundant table today as the pilgrims were back in 1621. It is a special occasion meant for showing others how thankful you are to have them in your life.

Frequently Asked Questions

My husband and I are attending Thanksgiving Day dinner at my in-laws. My mother in-law is a very accomplished cook, while I am not very handy in the kitchen. She has asked me to bring a dish. Any suggestions?
Compliment your mother-in-law on her talents in the kitchen, and admit that your own skills need some polishing. Search out the best bakery in the area and buy a traditional Thanksgiving dessert-perhaps a pumpkin or pecan pie.
Or if dessert has already been planned, you will find an amazing range of prepared gourmet salads and breads at most upscale groceries. Your dish needn't be homemade for you to make a delicious contribution to the feast!

I've been invited to a Thanksgiving dinner with friends. Should I bring a gift?
While Thanksgiving is not a gift-giving holiday, it's a nice gesture to bring a hostess gift. You might choose something that relates to the colors or theme of this holiday. For example, a Thanksgiving candle or a bouquet of flowers with pretty autumn hues is a wonderful accent for any dining room table.
