This year’s Thanksgiving celebration is bound to be spectacular. You can already envision the beautiful table, full of your nearest and dearest, set with the finest linens and china, and groaning underneath plate after plate of succulent holiday fare. Each room of the house is sparkling clean; nary a crumb can be found on the kitchen’s hardwood floor and even the dog has been washed and is bedecked in his holiday finest.

You smile at the enticing image and congratulate yourself for not hosting Thanksgiving this year. Instead of spending hours waiting on long lines at the Supermarket, searching through Pinterest for a new and exciting recipe for cranberry sauce, making DIY pinecone place cards that leave your fingers super-glued together, or standing on your feet basting that Thanksgiving turkey, you’re spending the day out with family and good friends.

We understand just how much hard work goes into hosting Thanksgiving dinner, so we’ve put together a list of gifts that will show your hostess just how much you appreciate not having to host Thanksgiving dinner this year.

We love these gift ideas for the hostess: Antique nail head gallery frames.
