Sometimes we have Thanksgiving in our home, and other years we’ve been invited to the homes of family or friends to celebrate. I do love to bring a little something to let our hosts know how much we appreciate them. There’s a lot of work involved when hosting, much of it behind the scenes. While hostess gifts are not a requirement, it’s always thoughtful to show appreciation and gratitude for their generosity.

It doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive, just from the heart! This simple tag features one of my favorite quotes, which is perfect for sharing a Thanksgiving meal.

They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad & sincere hearts.

I like to tie the tag around a lovely loaf of bread, or my homemade bread cubes that you can also make into croutons. Any type of bread would work–homemade or from the store!

How to Make

Croutons or Bread Cubes

Fill a large cellophane bag with your bread cubes or croutons. There are many sizes of the clear treat bags, depending on what you want to use, and how much you want in each. You can fit quite a bit in an 12×16 bag, but you can easily go bigger smaller.

Download the tag, print onto white or kraft cardstock. Cut it out, then punch a hole in the top. Tie the tag on to the bag with a piece of jute–and slide in a rosemary sprig for a bit of color if you want to!

Bread Loaf

You can use any type of bread you like! Something homemade, like chocolate chip pumpkin bread, cinnamon bread, or wheat bread works really well. Or a high quality loaf of bread from a favorite bakery or grocery store is a yummy option, and a timesaver as well.

Place your bread in a bread bag, and tie on the tag with jute after printing. I love to add that sprig of rosemary—it brightens it up and adds the perfect touch.

Where do you find fresh rosemary?

I buy it at my local grocer, in the herbs section. It comes in a small plastic container, which is enough for what I need.
