Friendsgiving Gift Guide

Friendsgiving is a great time to kick back in a relaxed atmosphere with your friends.  A small gift is the perfect symbol of your appreciation and friendship for your host/hostess and friends this year. Or maybe you will not be able to make a trip to visit your loved ones this year. In this case, sending a small gift is a great way to remind friends and family that you are thinking of them and thankful for them in your life. Peruse our Friendsgiving Gift Guide to find just the thing!

Help them set a memorable table

Handwoven table runners

They say “people eat with their eyes first,” so in addition to all the delicious smells that come with a Friendsgiving meal, a beautiful tablescape communicates care and celebration.  Los Andes Shop handwoven table runners provide the base for a welcoming table.  You can stick with traditional fall colors in our Earthtone series, or go monochrome with our Black/Gray/White options. There are 3 sizes to choose from – one is sure to fit your host’s table and be just right for the size of your gathering. Handwoven by Maria Montalvo in the Andes of Ecuador, this tapestry is a unique piece that your host will treasure long after the last guest leaves.

Raw Honey Table Favors

These honey favors would look great at each place setting! These 2 oz jars of raw honey from Eternal Honey come with Wood Dippers, Gold Lids, & Bee Pendants – a sweet little something each Friendsgiving guest can take home and savor, long after the event. Raw honey has not been pasteurized, and pollen was not removed.

Fair trade hand-carved acacia bowl
