In the spirit of gathering around the table with loved ones this holiday season, we've teamed up with our friends at Madewell to bring you and your crew a collection of Friendsgiving party essentials. That's right, we've bundled up everything you need for stylish and stress-free entertaining so that you can focus on the people, not the planning (bless!).

Tips to be thankful for
At the risk of stating the obvious, remember to share what you're thankful for and have your guests do the same. We asked our good friend and chef, Woldy Reyes, why he celebrates Friendsgiving, and the 411 on that delectable dessert. See below for his heartfelt answer and Filipino Coconut Rice Cake recipe, which he so generously shared.
Friends helping friends is a tip that applies to all seasons and celebrations, so don't be shy asking for a hand if you're the host, or what you can do or bring if you're a guest.
Play our Friendsgiving mix from setup all the way through the last goodbye. A good playlist will set the vibe and get everyone into that party mood, trust!
Finally, end the night with a crowd-pleaser and serve your friends this delicious dessert (scroll through for the full recipe!):
