Thanksgiving Hostess Gift Ideas

After all the hard work and love that goes into preparing Thanksgiving dinner, I like to bring something with a personal touch to show my hostess I appreciate them! 

Here are 3 simple ideas:
WINE BOTTLE TAG
Turns out this pin links to a place where you can buy this tag. I made a tag you can just print and attach to your favorite bottle of wine (or no-alcohol cider). You can click on the THIS LINK to download the tag!
ENGRAVED CASSEROLE DISH
I love having a dish with my name on it. It is a great way to get my dish back when I use it for parties or to take dinner to a neighbor!
To personalize the dish, you would just use some vinyl and Armour Etch. Cut the name with a Cricut or Silhouette so you have a stencil. 
Put the Armour Etch over the stencil for just 60 seconds and then rinse off with water!

You could bring this full of the dish you prepared for dinner and just leave it with the hostess or bring it with the ingredients for this fun Dump Cake they can make later. 
For this recipe you would literally dump the ingredients into your pan in this order:
1. Cover pan with non stick spray
2. Add a can of PUMPKIN
3. Add your YELLOW CAKE MIX
4. Add PECANS
5. Dump your MELTED BUTTER on top.

Place in a pre-heated 325F oven for 25-30 minutes. 
The original pin says to not worry about butter not getting onto all of the cake mix. In my opinion, you should worry just a little :) It is weird to have little cake crumbs that haven’t gone soft in my opinion…
PUMPKIN SPICE SUGAR SCRUB
After all those dishes, a good scrub will make your hostesses hands feel amazing! 
The recipe is easy, you would just combine:
2 Cups of Brown Sugar
1 Cup of Granulated Sugar
2 Tablespoons of Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 Cup + 1 Tablespoon of Sunflower, Safflower or Vegetable Oil

I would make a little extra for yourself.. your hands will thank you for it!
