When autumn comes around, celebrations follow. In October, there’s Halloween in all its spooky glory. November brings Thanksgiving, a time of gratitude, gathering, and of course, food. Due to restrictions brought on by COVID-19, Thanksgiving will look different for many people this year. Some may only see their loved ones over video chat; others will dine with only a few friends and family members.

Even though some Thanksgivings will be unconventional this year, there are still plenty of ways to give thanks, especially with a gift. These Thanksgiving gift ideas are great for your Thanksgiving host, hostess, or any loved one in your life that you are thankful for.

Thanksgiving food, like turkey and mashed potatoes, is hearty and rich. It’s perfect for pairing with a delicious drink! If your Thanksgiving host or hostess has the food handled, send them a bottle to complete the spread.

If your cousin, sister, or grandparent often assumes the role of holiday host, make their day with something to help them entertain, once it is safe to have large events and celebrations again.

Even if your dear friend isn’t hosting a large Friendsgiving or if you’re celebrating Thanksgiving with your family over Zoom this year, you can still show your gratitude.

Your loved ones may not be breaking out the typical decorations for a video chat, but they’ll appreciate some fresh flowers. Send a rustic autumn bouquet for their apartment, or a colorful floral centerpiece to house on their Thanksgiving table.

And with SmartGift’s instant digital gifting feature, your loved ones will enjoy their gift no matter how far away they are.

Even though the Thanksgiving festivities might be virtual, it is still a great reason to dress up and feel fancy. Send your best friend a new accessory for her favorite outfit or gift the new grandkid a sweet sweater from the family.

Thanksgiving by nature is a food centric holiday. Extend the leftovers and celebration in the days to come with some delightful treats that can be enjoyed for breakfast after Black Friday shopping or as a mid-day treat.
