You have waited all year for this moment to come. When it is about to knock at your door, will you be ready with the preparations? This year, it is really a special event because this is the first Thanksgiving Day you and your better half will spend together. To make this event unique, both of you have decided to organize a great party where all your near and dear ones will come to celebrate the event with you.

For the party, the preparations are to be carefully planned, allowing ample time so that nothing gets skipped. And those who will visit in the party should be given a token of love. Happy wishes and a gift for all is what you desire for everyone, but you will need to specifically categorize whom to give what. You definitely have a fixed budget, so divide the amount according to your gift-sharing wishes.

To begin with: Your better half

You can get her pearl earrings exclusively meant for this occasion. This will not only grace her beauty, but she will be overwhelmed to receive it. A 14k white gold cultured pearl will cost around 220, and this much you can really bear for your wife.

And you, the other half, know very well that your hubby dear is very fond of gemstones. So why dont you get him an oval andesine labradorite? This is a natural stone made from feldspar originally. It will cost you around 140. The reflection and the shine of this stone will add to the jolly spirit of Thanksgiving Day, and your husband will be surprised to see your fine and exceptional choice.

The senior most: Gift baskets for mom and dad

Every year it was their turn to gift you first, but this time you will take the lead. This type of gift basket can be given to anyone who is close to you. If that person loves to eat, this one is simply the best.

Chocolate bars and berry drop candies together make a warm decoration in a basket. You can also add a few delicious, freshly baked cookies and two to three cappuccino singles for both of them. The best shape for the basket will be oval and wrap it all with a hand-made bow to give it a personal touch. Dont miss the warm greetings for Thanksgiving Day. Altogether, the gift basket will cost you around 60 but it depends very much on the product brands. The reason for this selection of items is very simple. They can carry these back to their homes and enjoy eating them in their own way, at leisure, recalling the moments of this event.

For the little ones: Brothers and sisters

They are either in their teens or still taking their primary lessons. Toys, chocolates and clothes can be the best combination for them. If you have more than a brother or a sister, then arrange for some chocolate gift packs or bars. You can also arrange for a gourmet basket filled with 3-4 flavors of cheesecakes. White chocolate, pecan truffle and almond raspberry - all of them are their favorites.

You want to gift them something they can keep with them and also can use? Give them a Thanksgiving special t-shirt or any outfit created by you. Very simple! Buy a t-shirt or a tank top and add a decoration with images of the Fall season and Thanksgiving. A turkey as a cartoon, for instance, can be the front look of the dress. Or, you can elaborately design it with a touch of green with leaves and ferns.

All your loved ones will appreciate your thoughtfulness and how you create magic on this warming event of Thanksgiving with lots of love and gifts to share.
