Thanksgiving and all of it's parade-watching, football cheering, stuff-your-face glory is rapidly approaching. I have yet to take on the feat of hosting Thanksgiving for my family. As such, I am always on the lookout for the perfect hostess gift. Delivering a small thank you gift is the least that I can do to show my appreciation for all of the hard work and love that goes into the creation of a delicious Thanksgiving meal.
This year, we will be traveling to Nashville to spend some much needed quality time with my in-laws. I found the perfect hostess gifts on a recent shopping excursion to the North Georgia Premium Outlets in Dawsonville. Here are ten great ideas for Hostess gifts under $30.
