September signals many events. Schools are resuming, the weather is changing, and Labor Day weekend is coming. The history of Labor Day goes back to the late 19th century. It was made a federal holiday in 1894 after trade unionists expressed support for a day that honored American workers. Since then, Labor Day has evolved into a patriotic celebration of the end of summer. Usually, it involves BBQs, big retail sales, and gatherings of family and friends.

Labor Day is always on the first Monday of September. This year, it falls on September 7, 2020. Whether you’re hosting your own gathering or virtually attending a loved one’s, make everyone’s day off work a little bit sweeter with a thoughtful gift.

What better way to honor summer coming to an end than with a delicious day of grilling? A delicious gift makes any BBQ better. Choose from mouth watering options or a crowd favorites. Your host will be glad to have the grocery trip taken care of.

The BBQ might be the star of the Labor Day BBQ, but snacks and desserts are just as important. Satisfy any sweet tooth with a good old fashioned pie, or give the gift of crunch with smores.

If you’re attending someone else’s Labor Day party, show your gratitude with a gift for the hostess. Some wine for the hostess’s home bar is sure to please, especially when said wine comes with snacks.

Or, if you’re an employer or business owner, thank your hardworking employees by sending them something nice. They deserve it!

You may have heard the saying, “Don’t wear white after Labor Day.” While this thinking is a bit old-fashioned, it can be fun to indulge. Why not gift them a chic white outfit? If that’s not their style, send them a strappy pair of sandals.
