Alicia Lund Thanksgiving Table

Your Thanksgiving host has done all the planning, shopped for all the ingredients, and cooked and cleaned their way through many dishes. Now it’s your turn to show up with a small, but thoughtful gift that shows your appreciation. To help you out, we’ve rounded up some of the best host gifts you can find at Williams Sonoma right now.

Spiced Pumpkin Pecan Bark

If you love our peppermint bark, you need to try this pumpkin pecan version. The bottom layer of the bark is semisweet dark chocolate infused with pumpkin spice oil, and the top is white chocolate with ground nutmeg and cinnamon-covered pecans. You won’t upstage your host’s pumpkin pie, but it might be close.

Olivewood Coasters, Set of 4

Frequent dinner hosts can never have too many coasters at the ready. These gorgeous olivewood Italian coasters all have a unique pattern and will look great sitting under any drink.

Mulled Cider Kitchen Essentials Kit


Help your host get into the holiday spirit with this kitchen essentials kit that smells like mulled cider. The kit includes dish soap, hand soap, and countertop spray — it will make any home feel warm and cozy into the new year.

Copper Wine Opener

This elegant wine opener provides the right amount of sparkle to any holiday kitchen! Better yet — pair this it with a nice bottle of wine for a superior gift for your host.  

Peppermint Hot Chocolate and Marshmallows

Hot chocolate is ubiquitous with the holiday season, and this peppermint version is particularly special. Made with Guittard chocolate and pure peppermint oil, this rich and creamy drink is the perfect match for the accompanying vanilla marshmallows.

Infused Olive Oil Gift Set

This olive oil set is a great gift for the host that’s hard to shop for. The set comes in four flavors: blood orange, roasted garlic, aromatic basil, and white truffle. They’re perfect for dipping breads, drizzling over salads, or adding a finishing touch to soups.

Silicone Ice Sphere Molds, Set of 2

For the host that serves a mean cocktail, these ice sphere molds will be a welcome surprise. This ice will keep drinks colder for longer as they’re slow to melt. If you want to be the best guest ever, bring your friend a nice bottle of their favorite spirit to accompany the molds!

Antonini Olivewood Cheese Knives Set

These beautiful olivewood cheese knives will (almost) steal the show on your host’s next cheese board. The knives come as a set of four and are designed for various firmness of cheeses.

Mulling Spices

The coziest host gift might just be this jar of mulling spices. With clove, allspice, orange, and cinnamon, this mixture is wonderful when simmered with apple cider or red wine. Cheers to that!

Winter Forest Candle

After cooking, cleaning, entertaining, and then cleaning again, your Thanksgiving host can wind down with this seasonal candle. This customer-favorite smells of pine, cedar, thyme, citrus, cinnamon, and patchouli, and will help set the tone for the rest of the holiday season.
