Thanksgiving is a time for everyone to gather together (safely, of course!), catch up on each other's lives, and eat some really great food. It's also a time to reflect on the things we're grateful for, and show that gratitude to those around us. Whether you're looking to thank your host for cooking up an epic festive feast, contribute to the meal, or treat a loved one who can't make it to the table this year, these great Thanksgiving gifts will help you celebrate the ones you're truly thankful for.

From decadent edible indulgences to serveware that'll dress up the turkey-topped tablescape — and even seasonal items for the fall fiend — we put together plenty of Thanksgiving gift options so you don't have to show up empty-handed to everyone's favorite foodie holiday. And even if you and some pals are just throwing together a quick Friendsgiving with takeout and wine, it's always a good idea to get the host a little something.

For Coffee Lovers
Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug

A mug may seem like a weak gift at first, but when it'll keep their drinks warm for as long as they want and at whatever temperature they desire, things get a little more high-tech. 

The Ember mug keeps their coffee or tea at the exact temperature they want it when they set a degree in the app. Or if they don't want to fuss with it, they can set their drink on the smart coaster, which will keep the drink hot, too.

Best for Cocktail Drinkers
Greenbar Distillery Blended American Whiskey
Greenbar Distillery

A pre-dinner cocktail never hurt anyone, and if your host enjoys whiskey straight-up, they'll love this blend. This smooth-drinking whiskey is aged in six different kinds of wood, giving it a complex flavor. Notes of butterscotch, plum, and clove will tickle their palate as they take a swig.

Plus, Greenbar Distillery plants a tree for every bottle sold, so it's kind of a 2-in-1 gift.

Coffee Agate Coasters

Coasters are a small but useful gift that anyone can use! These sliced agate ones add a touch of sparkle to any tablescape or coffee table without feeling too flashy.
