Everything you need for the most fab Friendsgiving bash yet

From invites to take away bags, up your game for the family you get to choose

Image Credit: Emily Cromwell Much like traditional Thanksgiving celebrations, Friendsgiving has many of the same qualities, including stuffing (both the turkey kind and your face), surrounding yourself with friends (AKA: the family you get to choose), and, of course, giving thanks. But the best part of this millennial-coined holiday, is that you can make it whatever you want it to be. Whether you crave to treat your besties to an entirely home-cooked meal – from turkey to pie, want to take the pressure off with a potluck-style soiree, or prefer to throw down with a fancy cocktail party – Etsy has just what you need to bring your vision to life. We’re talking everything from the invitation, to decor, to take away goodie bags. Let’s dig in!
