Bring Thanks to Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is around the corner, so, as we prepare for the big day known for cooking, overeating, and lots & lots of football watching, we’ve come up with some tips on bringing thanks back to Thanksgiving:

Letterpress Thank You

Incorporate a beautiful letterpress note card with each place setting so guests can write a note to the person seated on their right about why they are thankful for that person. Recipients can open their notes of gratitude when they get home.

Provide small enclosure cards  for guests and have them anonymously write down one thing they are thankful for and drop it into a bowl. Then later on, each guest can pick one at random and read it aloud, while everyone tries to guess who wrote it.

Hostess Notes

If you are not hosting the holiday at your home, you can do something thoughtful for the one who is. Bring one special card for the hostess that everyone signs. Discreetly leave the card behind at the end of the evening for the host/hostess to read after all have gone home. You can even go one step further and get a fabulous hostess gift from the entire group.

Offering a “thankful craft” is a fun option, particularly if there are a lot of kids attending your Thanksgiving dinner. Thanksgiving craft ideas are plentiful on Pinterest, but our favorites are this Gratitude Garland or this Thanksgiving Tree .
