Thanksgiving is the ideal occasion to show the people in your life how much you appreciate them. 

Regardless of if you want to show appreciation to your host for Thanksgiving dinner or if you simply want to shower a loved one with a special gift to commemorate the holiday, there are a number of ideas that make great presents for this time of the year. 

Here are five of the best gift ideas for this Thanksgiving.

Seasonal Floral Arrangement: A classic floral arrangement is a hostess gift that will never go out of style. Good choices for fall flowers include mums, orange roses, sunflowers, and red carnations. 

Bring the buds together in a vase or a colored ribbon. You can also consider bringing a Thanksgiving host a centerpiece for their dinner table. They will appreciate the gesture and everyone will enjoy the beauty of the flowers.

Hickory Farms Gift Basket: Nothing says Thanksgiving quite like a cornucopia of food. The Hickory Farms Thanksgiving gift basket options include everything that you need for a beautiful feast. 

Present your host with a classic meat and cheese gift box, ideal for all that snacking that happens before the main meal. Or tickle everyone’s sweet tooth with pies, cheesecake samplers, or truffles. 

You can even order a premium turkey or spiral-sliced ham from Hickory Farms, making it a one-stop shop for all of your holiday needs.

Charcuterie Board: One of the latest food trends is the elaborate charcuterie board. You can make arranging this even more fun for your hostess by providing a stylish new board to display all of the goodness. 

If you are visiting another home for Thanksgiving, consider offering to make the charcuterie board yourself and then leaving the actual display platter as a gift for the host to keep. You can personalize it by having it engraved with the family monogram for an extra special touch.

Fall-scented Candle: You can never go wrong with a fall-scented candle. From pumpkin spice to apple cider to fall leaves, there are a variety of scents that immediately evoke the warm feelings of the season when you smell them. 

Not only do candles smell delicious, but they also create a warm and cozy glow in the room. Wrap up the candle with a festive bow and you have an easy, practical, and thoughtful Thanksgiving gift.

Holiday Decor: By the time Thanksgiving rolls around, many people are already looking ahead to Christmas. This gives you the perfect opportunity to gift that special person with a holiday-themed decor item. 

The possibilities are endless when it comes to holiday decorations. Get them started on creating a festive vibe in their home by giving them a poinsettia or a potted evergreen centerpiece. Or present them with a keepsake ornament for their tree.

These five gift ideas will help you to show how much you care this Thanksgiving season. Do not miss this opportunity to reflect on the people who make your life so complete.
