Friends + Thanksgiving = Friendsgiving

Who doesn’t love a made-up holiday that got its inspiration from a 90s sitcom (Friends) and is now one of the happiest excuses to pig-out a second time during Thanksgiving week? You know what we’re talking about—Friendsgiving—the holiday with no stress, come-as-you-are dress code, your besties for guests and potluck food options. Turkey optional. Drinks mandatory. 

There are oodles of Instaworthy ways to celebrate this fun day, where you’re free to create it all Camille Styles stylish or a potluck in pajamas. There are enough ideas out there on blogs, Pinterest, and Instagram to make your head swim: the pie contests, the food, the signature drinks, damn, I want to be friends with some of these overachievers.

Let Top Trip Rentals Upgrade Your Holiday

Wouldn’t you just love to up your game this Friendsgiving without having to clean up your messy apartment beforehand? If you’ve been hosting these at home, think about making 2018 the year you upgrade your gathering by renting an Airbnb through Top Trip Rentals.

Top Trip has homeslofts, and downtown spaces available during the holidays that would make a great place to host a holiday get together. At a Top Trip Friendsgiving, you can hang out, listen to music, watch the game, or games (some homes have multiple TVs), cook in our full kitchens, and eat around the dining room table. This is your perfect recipe for saving your sanity over the holidays. For sure. Deal with family first, then check into Littlefield Lofts downtown (or any of our other homes around town) and hold a kick-ass Friendsgiving.

If you’d rather not be in the middle of Austin, rent an entire home in University Hills just north of the Mueller Development. For a fancy pants Friendsgiving, blow it out and reserve the architectural gem Bloomhouse, or the Graeber House with its own indoor heated pool or the restored Provident on 5th Street with its open loft layout and historic charm.

Ideas Galore for Friendsgiving Fun

And for all of these homes, there’s a great theme and decorations out there in blogland just waiting to be discovered. For more Friendsgiving inspo check out this awesome blog from or this round-up from Real Simple that has ideas for food, decorations, menus, recipes, and drink ideas.

However you decide to celebrate your friends this Thanksgiving, it’s great to remember that there’s so much to be grateful FOR—friends, food and fun over a vacation. Enjoy! Oh, and don’t forget to invite me if you’re hosting one of those Instaworthy celebrations, hashtag blessed, I will be right over!
