10 Things You Should Bring to Thanksgiving Dinner
After turkey and copious amounts of wine, your belly will be full and your eyes will be shutting. Instead of bringing a bottle of wine to add to the sleepies, trying bringing some delicious seasonal coffee. Pumpkin is always a huge hit, but rich flavors like hazelnut and chai are always comforting in the colder months.
Kitchen Emergency Kit
There are so many things that can go wrong on a major holiday. Your host will appreciate a safety net — even if it's a small one! Pack a small bag of emergency items that could help your host get through the holiday. A timer, turkey twine, and an aloe plant are all great options for some of the major kitchen emergencies that could arise.
It may seem like a strange thing to pack along, but those that host a later dinner will definitely appreciate you bringing a distraction. With the chaos that ensues with even the smallest of families at holidays, it helps to have activities to keep rambunctious little ones and ornery older ones occupied while the host gets the meal ready.
Grumbling stomachs can easy be distracted with the help of a fun activity. Send the hungry masses outside to toss around a football. Not only will the extra activity help them feel a little better about the big meal they are about to consume, but your host will be happy to have eager fingers out of their way!
