I'm just going to say it — an intimate Thanksgiving for two is highly underrated. Even though you may be missing some of your family members this year, spending the holiday alone with your partner has plenty of its own perks. And luckily, after you capture the feast or the festivities with a pic, there's no shortage of fitting Instagram captions for Thanksgiving photos with just your partner.
There are lots of different reasons why you might be enjoying a two-person Thanksgiving. Maybe, due to the coronavirus pandemic, you and your SO have decided to stay home for the health and safety of your families and yourselves. Maybe you aren't able to travel home this year, or you simply decided that there's no one else you'd rather be with on this holiday. Regardless, spending Thanksgiving alone — or with another couple — can be special in its own way. For one, you can dodge those awkward jokes from Uncle Ron and probing questions from Aunt Ellen. And as an added bonus, you don't have to share that bottle of red with anyone else.
Having Thanksgiving with just your partner can also allow you to start some new traditions of your own — including an annual IG post, of course. Just be sure to add one of the following cute and clever captions to spread the love and gratitude this year.
