I'm going to Thanksgiving dinner at my friend's house. I'm single and they told me I don't need to bring anything, but I still would like to give them something. What would be a good gift to bring in thanks for inviting me.

A bottle of wine is always a nice gift. Or how about a decorative, scented candle in a nice candleholder? Depending on how much you want to spend, flowers are nice, too, maybe a small centerpiece for the table.
Poinsettia's are always nice for this time of year. It will probably last until Christmas and will be a nice decoration.
Bringing some cheese and crackers or other "eat before the meal" snacks is a good idea. You could also bring some wine or sparkling cider.
Nice smelling candles are always welcome in my home. To me there is nothing more welcoming when a person walks in the door as a nicely scented candle burning. To me, it just makes the atmosphere, despite the occasion.
For the first time in many years my family is going to some dear friends of ours for Thanksgiving. She will only let me bring a dessert and I feel so odd because for one, I am usually the one cooking everything, but for two, my family has seven people in it! So I bought this candle that comes in a Mason jar and is flavored "Oatmeal Raisin Cookie". It smells so much like the season and it was inexpensive at Walmart. I am also taking a pumpkin that I already had at my home for decoration and carving it out just enough to set a pot of flowers inside of it. I will probably add rafia ribbon bows to it as well.
