Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and if you’re lucky enough to attend a feast at someone else’s house instead of your own, buying a small host or hostess gift is a great way to say, “Thank you for cooking, cleaning, washing an enormous mountain of dishes.” Here are 3 simple ideas that tell your hosts what you’re thankful for this year.
1) KiiPix Smartphone Picture Printer
This smartphone picture printer creates vintage-style instant prints from your smartphone photos. It’s a great way to preserve holiday memories, and at $40, it’s a reasonable gift for modest hosts and hostesses.
2) Tea Forte Holiday Tea Box
Tea works as a host gift for a few reasons—if they like tea they’ll drink it, it’s reasonably priced, and it won’t end up in their basement or garage only to be dragged out once a year when you visit for Thanksgiving. This seasonal tea set comes in a decorative box and contains festive flavors like winter chai, spiced ginger rum, and sweet orange.
3) An Illustrated Host Journal
If your Thanksgiving hostess loves throwing dinner parties all year round, this hardcover illustrated journal with illustrations by painter and chef Jacques Pépin will help them record menus and memories in style.
