Thanksgiving with Grant Macdonald London


“I love Thanksgiving because it’s a holiday that is centred around food and family, two things that are of utmost importance to me.” Marcus Samuelsson


Thanksgiving is a celebration of gratitude and togetherness, centred - as the best celebrations often are - around a table heaving with food. To make this special occasion even more memorable, Grant Macdonald London is here to take the artistry of table setting to a whole new level. Discover our exquisite range of tableware, gifts and accessories that will elevate this year’s Thanksgiving gathering and give your loved ones something to really be grateful for.

Paragon Candlesticks

Setting the right ambiance is crucial for any gathering, but particularly around Thanksgiving, when the days have grown shorter and candles are the perfect way to keep the celebration going into the evening. Our exquisite candlesticks are classically handsome, but strikingly modern thanks to the complex designs that make up the stems. Combining silver and 24ct gold plate, these candlesticks are hand made in our London workshop and make the perfect gift to celebrate the occasion with a captivating centrepiece for your table. 

Paragon Red and White Wine Glasses

Thanksgiving is a time for indulgence and appreciation of fine food and drink. Whether you’re enjoying a crisp white to complement the turkey, or a red to accompany the array of hearty dishes, wine adds to the festive mood, reflecting the conviviality of a Thanksgiving gathering. The clinking of glasses and pouring of wine brings warmth to a table, and our Paragon glasses are designed to add a touch of sophistication to the proceedings. Our Paragon crystal has been hand-blown and engraved in Somerset, with an extra sparkle thanks to the 24% lead oxide that has been added to the glass before it’s blown into a mould designed by our master craftsman, cut and polished by hand and finally frosted, to lend a modern twist to the classic design of these beautiful glasses. 

Cufflinks in collaboration with TUSK

Across the United States and in many other parts of the world, Thanksgiving has become synonymous with acts of kindness. Traditionally, you’ll find families and communities organising food drives, serving meals at soup kitchens, or donating to charitable organisations, coming together to support those in need and making a positive impact on the community.

This year, if you’re looking to maintain the tradition of charity work - and look particularly sharp in the process - we’d like to offer an unorthodox opportunity to do good and look good doing it. For several years, Grant Macdonald London has been proud to support the work of the conservation charity, TUSK. As part of our work to celebrate the community development and environmental education programmes pioneered by this dynamic organisation, our master craftsmen have produced a collection of cufflinks inspired by the endangered animals that TUSK works so hard to protect. 

Dressing up for Thanksgiving lunch is a big part of the pleasure of the celebration - so why not add a touch of philanthropy to your outfit this year by investing in a pair of our Luangwa Lion or Gourma Elephant cufflinks, available in sterling silver and 24ct gold plate with finely chased details which bring these miniature masterpieces to life. 20% from the sale of each piece will be donated to TUSK to help them continue their vitally important conservation work.
