Whether you're heading to a fancy Thanksgiving dinner with family or an informal Friendsgiving party (or some sort of celebration in between!), you don't want to show up empty-handed — especially when you know your host has been cooking and preparing for guests all day. Little touches, like festive beer labels and wine totes, can upgrade an informal gift, while things like hand-stamped serving utensils and personalized serving platters work for a fancier occasion. But wherever you're going, there's sure to be a gift your host will love on this list.

And if you're hosting Thanksgiving this year, I totally won't blame you if you order some of these for yourself to adorn your dinner table, either. Just saying.
