If you’re going to be a guest this Thanksgiving- lucky you! But now you have to bring a gift to dinner. If you’re like me and cooking a dish to bring isn’t your thing, don’t worry, I’ve got a few fun ideas that are going to make your life easier AND please the hostess.
1. Wine- but not just any convenience store wine. Impress everyone this thanksgiving with a gift from tint cellars wine from Washington state. Here’s why this makes a fabulous and elegant gift.
-Tint cellars wine is award winning and they offer a variety of high quality wines including Cabernet , Malbec, Syrah, rosé, Sauvignon blanc, and more!
-With every bottle sold, 5% goes to 3 selected local non-profit organizations- talk about giving thanks!
-Tint cellars offers gift sets that include award winning tint cellars wine, custom glassbaby drink ware, jcoco chocolate, and a corkscrew. Each item in the gift set helps those in need as well.
-Choose from a red wine gift set, a white wine gift set, or a combo of both, sets start at $90.
-If you’re looking for a wow factor, you can gift this gorgeous 2017 magnum Cabernet Sauvignon signed by tint’s award winning wine maker, Noah Fox Reed. Go to tintecellars.com, shipping available nationwide.
2. I think giving something unique and artistic is a beautiful gesture this Thanksgiving. These inspirational notecards each feature a vibrant photograph taken by actress and artist, daphne maxwell Reid (aunt Viv from fresh prince of bel air).
The cover and inside feature a quote from Stacy Hawkins. You can purchase a set of 10, or individual cards on daphnemaxwellreid.com.
3. I love a good meat and cheese platter, and the new fall collection of gift baskets from hickory farms is sure to make everyone happy on thanksgiving! Here a few of my favorites:
- charcuterie essentials gift basket: so gorgeous, comes with a mini cheese board and spreader, 2 unique mustards, savory summer sausage and salami, smooth & creamy cheeses, all wrapped up for $89.99.

4. Give the gift of cozyness with a Chappywrap blanket. These high quality blankets are crafted with jacquard weaves that bear intricate reversible designs on each side, all while maintaining a strong construction. Chappywrap just released 5 new festive blankets. We have a few here: the holiday stripe, winter wonderland, and snowflake classic fair isle. You can find Chappywrap on Chappywrap.com and at various retail locations across the country for $135.
FYI- My birthday falls on Thanksgiving this year! I'll be turning 40 on turkey day! I wish you all a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.
