We can all agree hosting is damn hard work. So it shouldn't be a thankless job. Whether you're headed to Friendsgiving 2018, swinging by a white elephant party, or staying with your S.O.'s parents for the holidays, skip the $12 bottle of wine and show up with one of these thoughtful gifts instead.
Think outside the Godiva box and present your recipient with these almost-too-good-looking-to-eat bonbons instead. The small works of art come in flavors ranging from black sesame and passion mango to PB and jelly to sea salt caramel. Your host won't know whether to eat them or hang them on the wall.
If you're staying overnight, it makes sense to bring coffee. But you know what's an even better idea? Mushroom coffee. This blend contains shiitake shrooms for healthy skin and better immunity, plus turmeric to help with inflammation and joint pain. Your host will thank you for introducing them to their new morning beverage.
If you haven't tried coconut butter yet, it's richer and thicker than coconut oil and tastes delicious in coffee, on toast, in fat bombs, or straight outta the jar. This colorful set of algae-, matcha-, and berry-infused butters is insanely giftable, but we bet nobody would turn down a single jar of the classic either.
Your host has enough to worry about. Do them a solid and bring the icebreaker/post-dinner entertainment. Who's Most Likely To is exactly what it sounds like—a party game where you decide which person is most likely to wake up with half a burrito in bed/not stop talking about their trip abroad/still have a Beanie Babies collection.
In the age of Pinterest and Evernote, there's something special about actually writing down favorite recipes and new creations. Any host who likes tinkering in the kitchen will appreciate this recipe box and card set from badass apron maker Ellen Bennett and everyone's favorite stationer, Anna Bond.
Still in search of the perfect present? We've got tons more gift ideas right here.
