There’s nothing like a fun Friendsgiving to celebrate Thanksgiving and friendship. Even if you don’t celebrate right on Thanksgiving, there are so many reasons to spend time with good food and friends.

Before you get the turkey in the oven, it’s super fun to spend time chatting, gossiping and of course drinking wine before the actual meal begins.

To that end, I am excited to have partnered with BabbleBoxx to show you a few fun products you can use to make the perfect pre-Thanksgiving Friendsgiving get-together.

Rodney Strong Wines

I love wine at Thanksgiving, and good wine is a must. Plus, you always need a selection of both red and white. I tried both the Rodney Strong Sonoma County Cabernet and the Rodney Strong California Strong Chardonnay and that were super delicious.

But you are probably wondering more about the brand. The Rodney Strong brand started with a vision over 60 years ago and is currently creating award-winning vintage wines at super affordable prices. So make sure to stock up at Rodney Strong Wines!

Dorot Gardens

This is one of my all-time favorite products. Before I even started blogging I got hooked on the product when I stumbled across it at the store.

With all of my Costa Rican fresh cooking, I have the worst time keep herbs on hand before they go bad. Especially garlic.

But with the Dorot Gardens perfectly proportioned servings of herbs frozen in a convenient pack, I can just pop out the servings I need and then freeze the rest until I need them. There’s always at least 5 of these in my freezer, and they come in 8 different herb packs:

For this photo I just mixed 2 cubes of basil, softened into 1/4 cup sour cream for a delicious dip.

Make sure to find yours on the Dorot Gardens Website.

Friendsgiving- The Official Guide to Hosting, Roasting, and Celebrating with Friends

I mean- who doesn’t love Friends? And with an official Friends book to celebrate the perfect Friendsgiving, you can’t go wrong. From recipes to entertaining tips from your favorite characters, plus quotes and memorable moments form the show, you can use this book to plan AND have fun with it when your friends arrive.

Dewey’s Cookies

It’s always time for cookies, and I love to have a few on hand pre- dinner just for snacking. I loved Dewey’s because all the cookies still taste small batch and there are some fun flavors.

Dewey’s Bakery opened first in 1930 in North Carolina, and more than 70 years later they are still making cookies that taste like home- without all the work.

Frank’s Red Hot Almonds

A perfect pair with wine, these almonds are made with Frank’s RedHot and and packed with protein.

Did you know Frank’s RedHot started in 1918 in New Iberia, Louisiana. Adam Estilitte and Jacob Frank joined forces to created the perfect hot sauce spiced with cayenne peppers. And now we get to reap the benefits with the perfect hot sauce and the perfect almonds. Plus you can get them on Amazon and a Mejer stores.
