15 Fun Favors For Your Thanksgiving Shindig

There is some argument that birthday parties are the only parties that have favors. I beg to differ. Any event or holiday where you welcome people into your home is an opportunity for party favors. While candy and pink plastic tiaras might be the first things to come to mind when you think of party favors, we’re going to leave those behind for some spectacularly classier ideas. Especially for Thanksgiving. Since the holiday revolves around food, many party favor options can too! It’s a great touch to send your friend or family member home with a little something after the feast. Take a look at these 15 fun favors for your Thanksgiving shindig.
