Thanksgiving is a special time of the year meant to be spent with close friends and family. Gifts are exchanged as luxurious yet tokens of appreciation and kitchen accessories seem to make great gifts.
Nothing says “Personal” like Homemade Thanksgiving Kitchen Accessories
Bath fizzes can prove to be rather simple and accessible to form at home, and make for great gifting items. You can choose homemade body scrubs as well. Your folks are bound to love the simple yet surprisingly useful homemade cocktail mixers. You may want to add printable tags on the items.
Tasty Treats make the Perfect Gifts
Batches of granola made from scratch at home are perfect accompaniments for the kitchen. Frozen cookie dough rolls can also pass as tasty kitchen gifts, especially if they happen to be wrapped prettily in Thanksgiving-themed paper.
Your kitchen is sure to become the highlight of the house with the delicious hot chocolate mix that is ideal for a chilly Thanksgiving evenings. You can put the mix in little tins and attach printable labels that are available for download from the World Wide Web.
Stock your refrigerator this Thanksgiving with sweet jam or preserved fruit made in the comfort of your home. Be sure to complete the canning process a good deal early in advance, probably during the summer months, if you are thinking of offering preserved fruit or jam as Thanksgiving gifts. Simply pick up a jar, wrap it using a pretty tea towel or place it inside a bag tied up neatly with a ribbon. You can also try decorating a small bag and filling it with some of your favourite coffee. Classy, personal and it smells great!
Herbed salts and flavoured sugar are good Thanksgiving gifts. You just leave a vanilla bean within sugar in order to scent it, and offer it in a delicate jar. A medium sized jar of honey, a bottle of virgin olive oil, a bunch of fresh garden herbs and a pint of flavoured ice-cream, tied together with a ribbon serve to lighten moods when ‘tis the season of Thanksgiving.
Kitchenware…with the Holiday Touch
If your hostess has a completely functional kitchen, you might try gifting a bake ware or cookware set in the spirit of Thanksgiving since every kitchen needs to have a set. If your hostess finds cooking both enjoyable and easy, that is reason enough to go for this thoughtful gift. Remember, modern kitchens are just not places where you cook food, they are places where the whole family comes together in order to spend the evenings together.
If the person you are gifting the kitchen accessories to happens to be a bachelor who spends most of his time away from home because of his job, the ideal gift idea would be a toaster griller or a microwave oven.
New homemakers would be really happy to receive cutlery and cookery items as gifts such as the full fork and knife set. Other popular kitchen ware gifts on the occasion of Thanksgiving include tea set, dinner set, crockery items, kitchen accessories and gadgets for the kitchen.
Miscellaneous Kitchen Gifting Items on Thanksgiving
Decorative accessories for the kitchen dining table often get overlooked. Fill in the missing spot by gifting items like fruit baskets. Stylish wine glasses also look great. If you are a part of a large family, a chimney might be a good option. Low noise chimneys with thermo protection are in vogue this Thanksgiving season.
Bake a Cake on Thanksgiving
If baking is your thing, try to make something special for the kitchen that you know your hostess would like. Get an idea about her likes and dislikes. A personal favourite is the Homemade Rosemary Apple Butter. The butter has an incredible taste and can be enjoyed by the entire family. Package it in a small burlap swatch on a little glass mason jar. Other seasonal favourites include Harvest cake with vanilla cream and butternut squash soup with vanilla bean, cider and pear.
