Thanksgiving Gift Baskets

by candy47

Send a Thanksgiving gift basket to your host for Thanksgiving Day dinner or to friends and family across the miles.

Thanksgiving Day has been an official federal holiday in the United States since 1863 when, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday in November as a day to give thanks and praise to our Father in Heaven. (the day was later changed to the fourth Thursday in November).
The day is usually celebrated with a Thanksgiving feast featuring a turkey as the main course and pumpkin pie for dessert. The vegetables and side dishes can be regional and cultural, but it's always a large gathering of people and lots of food.
So if you've been invited to someone's home for Thanksgiving dinner and want to bring a gift, a Thanksgiving gift basket is always appreciated.

Yes scones, jams, cakes, breads and pates would look lovely in pretty jars and boxes in a beautiful basket.

Veronica it would be a lovely idea to make your own basket with homemade items!

George Washington declared a Thanksgiving Day but Abraham Lincoln made it a federal holiday.

Veronica on 09/11/2015

How delightful. I love that idea, I could include lots of my homemade preserves, breads and pate if I did a gift basket.

I didn't know Lincoln instituted this holiday. I imagine the tradition did date back to the pilgrims in the sense that some sort of Thanksgiving was celebrated each fall.
I really love gift baskets myself. Companies often give their business associates such small baskets, and sometimes even to their employees. With the economic crisis though they have dwindled to almost nothing :)
