Is it just me, or do the holidays really sneak up on us every year? I feel like I was literally just celebrating the arrival of fall and pumpkin-spiced-everything season and now here we are, a few days from Thanksgiving and the fun, crazy holiday season. As much as I love all of the fun gatherings with friends and family this time of year, finding the perfect host/hostess gift can be a little stressful. With that in mind, we have put together a little Thanksgiving 2016 Gift Guide to help you find the perfect little something for your holiday host! All of the gifts are under $50 and can be found in stores or online. Most can be picked up quickly at places like Target, World Market, or Williams-Sonoma, but there are a few Etsy goodies in there as well for the cook who has everything. I also included a cookbook (The Short Stack Cookbook, written by a friend from college – get it on Amazon or at shortstackeditions.com), which I love to give with some post-it notes including my favorite recipes in the book and any notes or tips I might have discovered. It’s a really personal touch that I have always appreciated getting and now love to give to others. Whatever you choose, we hope that you have a happy, safe, and wonderful Thanksgiving. We will be back on Wednesday with some more Good Food Reads, but until then…Happy gifting!
