If you’re traveling over hill and dale this Thanksgiving to spend the holiday in someone else’s home, you’re in good company. Last year, 50 million people did the same, traveling at least 50 miles to gather round the table with the ones they love.
We at Nanz & Kraft Florists also think you may have lucked out: hosting Thanksgiving is an enormous, dare we say, thankless task. There are so many steps involved in planning a formal, multi-course meal, and that’s not even talking about the execution of it. And while you may have been asked to contribute an item to the holiday table, expressing your gratitude toward your host requires a little more.
Giving a host gift is a long-standing tradition, with various cultures across the globe having their own customs. In the U.S., flowers, fruit baskets and food gifts are customary. Luckily, we have all of those things in spades here. We nominate our Gourmet Kentucky basket as the top choice, though, when it comes to a host or hostess gift.
When you’re traveling to spend Thanksgiving in someone else’s home, it’s fun to bring something unique to yours. This is essentially Louisville (okay, Kentucky) in a basket, with a range of treats here for the sampling. We’ve packed this baby with Ruth Hunt chocolates, Woodford bourbon balls, espresso beans and spoon bread mix.
Offer your host or hostess something like this and you’re not only extending your thanks, but offering them another fun foodie experience that they don’t have to prepare. Gift baskets like these are also great conversation pieces. So grab your gift basket from Nanz & Kraft Florists, tie it with a bow and deliver it to your Thanksgiving hosts this year.
