Just A Little Something

Cool hostess gifts for Thanksgiving

We all have lots to be thankful for—not the least of which is the person hosting Thanksgiving dinner. Show your gratitude with something a little more original than that re-gifted bottle of wine.
 
Order sweets from Tate’s Bake Shop. Everything is delicious, but we’re especially hooked on their crunchy, caramel-filled pecan pie; $23.50 for a 9-inch pie. Orders received by Noon are shipped by UPS the same day, excluding weekends.

Accessorize little kitchen helpers. If your host has kids, get ‘em in the spirit of cooking—or better yet, cleaning—with a personalized turkey smock from Williams-Sonoma ($24, or $30 with monogram). So darn cute. 
 
Bring a cure for dishwashing hands. Red Flower’s Italian Blood Orange Moisturizer looks pretty, smells delicious, and totally works. $24 at abchome.com.
 
Make it smell like fall. The 10-inch candles from Henri Bendel are beautifully packaged, and come in autumnish scents like Firewood and Fig. $30 at henribendel.com.
 
Entertain the rug rats. The Caramel Apple Dipping Kit from Dylan’s Candy Bar is totally festive and will give the kids something to do while the rest of you nap off the tryptophan. $18 at dylanscandybar.com.
