20 Thanksgiving Things You Didn’t Know You Needed

Divas' Favorite Things Newsletter Header

Thanksgiving: The holiday famous for FEASTING and FAMILY! Both the food and our loved ones bring us so much joy this time of year, right? And we can’t forget to mention the wonderful people in the kitchen that prepare a delicious Thanksgiving meal for all to enjoy! If you’re one of those people (and bless you if you are), aside from the potatoes, pasta salad, and pie, you’re also thinking about the dreaded clean up. Aye, aye, aye, if only that part magically disappeared as quickly as the turkey!

We certainly think a few things can help make this unfortunate part easier (and cuter!) so that you’ll quickly be on your way to enjoying a post-feast nap, post-feast football, or post-feast dessert #2 {because let’s be real…The feast is not over until you have yourself a second helping of dessert! Wink 🙂 }

So check out 20 of our most helpful Thanksgiving items you had no idea you even needed! (But will be so grateful you have this year!)

Left Over Containers

Thanksgiving meal, part two? Don’t mind if I do! Everyone loves a good turkey sandwich with stuffing and cranberry sauce the day after Thanksgiving! Left over containers with some Thanksgiving designs are the perfect solution to easily sending guests home with a cute container and their meal for the next day! (Or two…or three…or four!)
