You’re invited to Thanksgiving dinner…now what? 

First, jump for joy!  How wonderful that you don’t have to cook and clean up after a huge meal in your own home.  There is so much planning, prep work, shopping, cooking and cleaning that is involved with a successful dinner party.  If you are blessed to be invited to someone’s home for a big supper like Thanksgiving, I’d jump at the opportunity.  After all, don’t we all desire a stress free Thanksgiving?

Holiday DiningOne big mistake people make is showing up for the dinner party empty handed.  We found this excerpt from About.com regarding the proper etiquette when invited to someone’s home –

“It’s always a good idea to show your appreciation with a gift when invited to someone’s home. The problem is many people don’t know proper etiquette, so they feel uncomfortable having to make a decision. Remember that the size or price of the gift is insignificant. What you need to focus on instead is what that person will like.”

“Okay…so what should I bring?”

Here are five unique gifts that would be perfect for just about any host/hostess.  Each item is both unique and will fit into a tight holiday budget.  Every one of these cool holiday gift items ships within a 1-3 business days.
