Every year, my family celebrates Thanksgiving at my sister-in-law’s house, and every year, I feel like I should do something more to show her how grateful I am for all she does to host our huge family.
I mean, there’s planning the menu, shopping for food, cleaning the house (with 7 kids helping/running around), cooking, getting herself ready, etc. And that’s just the beginning. Then there’s entertaining guests and the clean up afterwards that has to happen! It’s a lot of work, but she pulls it off perfectly every year.
It just seems like a simple, “Thank you,” isn’t quite enough, and that giving her a thoughtful handmade gift would be a little more appropriate.
Now, I’ve said before how handmade gifts can mean the most, but that doesn’t mean that YOU have to make the gift. You can buy the gift from someone else who is good at their craft, and it can still feel as special and meaningful as it would if you made it yourself.
With that in mind, I’ve put together a little gift guide for the Thanksgiving dinner hostess.
All of these gifts are handmade and available on Etsy from some lovely shops. Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of the gift guide because many of these shops are offering discounts to Growing Up Herbal readers! You won’t want to miss them.
