Hosting Thanksgiving This Year? Make Sure It Goes Off Without a Hitch With These Accessories

Hosting Thanksgiving This Year? Make Sure It Goes Off Without a Hitch With These Accessories

From festive drinking glasses to the perfect apron, these pieces will gear you up for Turkey Day.

Far more than just an excuse to feast, Thanksgiving is a cherished opportunity to reunite with loved ones and honor family traditions, whether it be holding a pie bake-off or watching the Macy’s parade. More recently, it’s also become an opportunity to learn about Indigenous history, land, and practices as well as to express gratitude. If your home is hosting the festivities this year, we’ve got you covered with our top picks for an unforgettable evening.

JK Adams Reversible Carving Board
See you on the flip.  There are a lot of good carving boards out there, but there’s one the pros come back to again and again. We love its versatility: On one side, you’ve got a nice, flat surface for carving up your weekend roasts.
Inslee Fariss Autumn's Bounty Glass
Set the table for a Turkey Day to remember with this illustrated glass that features an array gourds, birds, and autumnal imagery designed by Inslee Fariss in collaboration with Anthropologie. 
Snowe Walnut Cheese Board Set
Our American-made walnut Cheese Board and classic Italian stainless steel Cheese Knives were made for each other, kind of like wine and cheese, beer and cheese, water and cheese... ok, really, anything and cheese.  Cheese Board: Choose from Walnut and Oxidized Walnut.  Cheese Knives:...

These Japanese-style cook's knives are specialized for their dexterity in chopping, dicing, and slicing. Rust-resistant stainless-steel blades hold an incredibly sharp edge. Traditional-style rounded Japanese handles are made of heat- and water-resistant resin.
Farmhouse Pottery Handmade Ceramic Farmhouse Gravy Boat
Feeling saucy.  No true feast is complete without a gravy boat for that savory sauce or sweet syrup—and we can’t wait to bring this one to the table. It’s hand-thrown and dipped in a cool cream glaze to create that perfectly rustic look you see.
Anthropologie Pumpkin Harvest Dish Towel
Set the tone for the season of pumpkin with this autumnal dish towel—it's sure to add some spice to you or a loved one's kitchen decor.

Le Creuset Cast Iron Signature Oval Baker, 3QT
Did someone say casserole? Bet you’ve never met a baking dish like this one: It’s built from cast iron and finished off with an enameled glaze all over—so it heats evenly and holds onto that heat for longer, then cleans up easy right after, no seasoning needed.
IVV Italian Retro Cocktail Glasses (Set of 2)
Sparkle & sip. Take one look at these gems, and it’ll probably come as no surprise that they’re handmade by master glassmakers in Italy. Every goblet and tumbler here gets its shine from blown lead-free glass, plus added texture all over.
Parcelle Thanksgiving 3-Pack
Beaujolais is always a popular choice, but drinking French wine on Thanksgiving is like wearing a Nas shirt to a Jay-Z concert.
Cuisinart MultiClad Pro Triple Ply Roasting Pan
An essential piece of cookware for family dinners, parties, and holiday celebrations, the Cuisinart Roasting Pans are designed to hold turkeys, chickens, and large roasts. Riveted stainless steel handles make placing the roasters into the oven, and lifting them out, safe and hassle free.
Victorinox Swiss Classic Paring Knife
A paring knife is every chef’s go-to tool for precision jobs in the kitchen, and our Swiss Classic Paring Knife 10 cm is a knife drawer standout not only for its fresh color palette but also for its sharp edge and pointed tip.
Creekside Farms Japanese Fall Harvest Wreath
Autumn glory. Fall harvests aren’t just about pumpkins, corn, and squash: Autumn’s also the time of year when grain fields go from green to golden.
East Fork Weeknight Serving Bowl
Easily our most reached for serving dish, and the piece we recommend most frequently as a wedding gift. Perfect for family-style salads, pasta, vegetable sides, or sitting pretty on your island holding apples all fall.
Caraway Oven Mitts - Set of 2
For everything you do in the kitchen, a little extra support never hurt anybody. Our Oven Mitts come in a set of two with bold and distinct color-rich patterns, made with a fluffy, soft-as-a-cloud cotton material.
Creekside Farms Cedar and Eucalyptus Garland
Winter's greetings.   Go for a lighter, brighter holiday theme this year: Swap out denser fir wreaths for airy eucalyptus, fragrant cedar, and bright white tallow berries (which we think look like drops of snow on the greenery).
Farmhouse Pottery Essex Traditional Wooden Candlesticks
Candle companions. Give your candlesticks a handmade home with these lovely wooden gems. Each one was lathe-turned in Pennsylvania from sustainably sourced white ash, then finished off with organic milk paint.
Riedel Vinum Set of 6 Cabernet Glasses
