8 Easy Thanksgiving Party Favors

Put the "thanks" in Thanksgiving with thoughtful, handmade presents for your holiday guests.

Allrecipes and Better Homes & Gardens are teaming up to help you have a Thanksgiving to remember.

1. Candy Corn on the Cob

Nestle clean corn husks inside clear, rectangular treat bags. Fill with harvest-color jelly beans and tie the ends with twine. Put one at each place setting.

    2. Glass Trivets

    Make fun holiday trivets by affixing paper designs to the bottom of glass candle coasters with decoupage medium. Let dry, and tie up a set for each guest with colored ribbon.

    3. Tree of Life

    Give the gift of a long-lasting tree. At ArborDay.org you can plant a tree in someone’s honor. At dinner, you can present a certificate tied to a burlap-wrapped twig.

      4. Souvenir Menu

      Choose a pretty computer font and print out your Thanksgiving menu. Pop into small picture frames. Tie up a few stalks of millet, wheat, or other seasonal grasses with colorful ribbon, and adhere to the frame with a dab of hot glue. Set a frame at each place setting.

      5. Cornhusk Candles

      Soak cornhusks in warm water for a minute, then wrap tightly around a votive candle holder and hold in place with a rubber band. Trim excess husk at top and bottom. Twist a thin length of husk and tie it around the center of the wrapped votive. Remove the rubber band. Let dry, then place a cornhusk-wrapped votive candle holder at each table setting.


        6. Mini Cookbook

        Create a mini cookbook as a fun and useful take-home gift. Print out favorite cookie recipes, dishes from your Thanksgiving menu, or try these mini cookbooks from BHG.com.

        7. Jar of Treats

        Fill jelly jars with spiced nuts or dried fruit. Top each jar with a square of linen and tie it with waxed twine.

        8. Seasonal Sips

        Customize a favorite bottle of wine with a pretty wine label. For extra "wow" you can offer wine-and-cheese pairing tips to go with the wine you choose.
