While some other holidays may get all the attention when it comes to gift giving (looking at you, Christmas), we think Thanksgiving should get its time to shine. After all, isn’t this holiday about letting your friends and family know just how grateful you are for them? While spending time together is obviously the best gift, we can assure you that no one will turn down a little Thanksgiving happy. From the host who planned the most elaborate and delicious Thanksgiving menu to your neighbor who always makes the season special to the friend who may not spend the holiday with their family this year, a gift is a welcome gesture to let your loved ones know just how much you appreciate them.
Of course, seeing as the biggest gifting holiday of the year is right around the corner, we totally get that you don’t want to spend too much on a Thanksgiving gift, which is why we curated this list. It’s filled with tons of budget-friendly gift ideas for everyone you may need to gift for this holiday season. Our top tip for this time of year: keep a few of these gifts on-hand so you’ll be ready for in case you forgot about an event or need a last-minute present.
Whether you’re gifting for the host with the most or you’re planning your own celebration this year and want to make it a little more special with gifts for guests, these presents will surely be enjoyed. Just don’t forget to include a card to let them know how much you appreciate them!
