The Fig Linens and Home Gift Guide

Hosting Thanksgiving is a massive undertaking. This season of gratitude, let the host of your Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving dinner know how much you appreciate them.

One of the best ways to express this appreciation is through a useful and thoughtful thanksgiving hostess gift. While a classic gift like a bottle of wine is better than showing up empty-handed, something more permanent for the home shows a deeper level of forethought and care.

Thanksgiving gifts like reed diffusers, cocktail napkins, or decorative boxes will add luxury to your host's home. They are sure to remember these gifts long after the Thanksgiving season has passed. These personalized Thanksgiving hostess gift ideas will give your host lots to add to their gratitude list.

If you're the host, treat yourself.  Use this guide to pick a luxury candle, a gorgeous throw, or a 100% cotton tea towel for all your hard work. You deserve it.
