Thanksgiving Gift Basket Ideas

Ready to Change Up Your Turkey Day?

Today’s technology makes it easy to reach out to faraway  friends and relatives who live across the country.  Show them that you are thankful to have them in your life. Send beautiful Thanksgiving Gift Baskets by mail delivered to their door. 

 If  Thanksgiving has become a chore instead of a celebration, maybe it’s time to rethink the holiday. Here are ways you can make Turkey Day terrific from start to finish. 


This year, roll out of bed on the fourth Thursday of November and start a new tradition. Get active by biking before breakfast or running in a local road race. Give back to your community by clearing a town park of debris or delivering food to those who are unable to leave their home. Bring the neighborhood together with a game of touch football or coffee and donuts at the cul-de-sac. Or for a real treat, head to New York City and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in person.


From your daughter’s college roommate to a member of the clergy, welcome friends to your Thanksgiving table. It will make for more lively conversation, and may also encourage that unruly uncle of yours to be on his best behavior.


Have you been reluctant to mess with beloved favorites? OK, so keep the melt-in-your-mouth mashed potatoes. But give everything else a makeover. Use a different bread in your stuffing. Serve an apple or pear relish instead of cranberry sauce. Toast marshmallows on top of sweet potatoes. Add pecans to your pumpkin pie. And if you haven’t attempted turducken yet, what are you waiting for? Surrender yourself to this savory Southern specialty!


For family members who you spend the holiday with, devote some time to getting to know them better. Ask about family history, play a game, or have Thanksgiving be potluck so you can all work side by side to prepare dinner.


Thanksgiving doesn’t have costumes or fireworks or presents. It is simply a day to give thanks. So take the time to do just that. Encourage everyone to write down what they are grateful for, and then post those notes on the dining room wall. Or during dinner, go around the table and ask each person to share their thoughts of appreciation. Experiencing these sentiments together will make for a more meaningful holiday.

Impress Your Dad With A Father's Day Gift Basket

Picking out just the right Father's Day gift for your Dad isn’t always an easy task. 
Maybe your dad is the strong silent type who doesn’t ever give any clues about what he wants for Father’s Day, or maybe he just insists that you don’t need to get him anything at all.

The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker

Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is someth…
