10 Gifts For The Thanksgiving Host Who May Have Taken Pity On You

Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks. It's in the damn name. So if you're attending Thanksgiving as a guest rather than a host this year, it's all the more reason to be grateful for the bountiful spread that's about to laid out before you. Even if your host insists on doing all the cooking and grunt work, you know better than to show up empty-handed.

Sure, wine is usually a failsafe option for a thank-you gift — but a little extra thought goes a long way this time of year. Consider a set of etched wooden coasters featuring your city's different neighborhoods, or a clever wine bottle stand that's also a conversation piece. Here are 10 fun, stylish and wallet-friendly options (everything is $50 or less), that your host will use and remember well after the leftovers have disappeared and the wine is finally kicked.
