Step it up.

Don't even think about serving a can of cranberry sauce this year.  Seriously!  It is SO easy to make a homemade sauce, and it is so tasty too!  Leftovers make a great spread for your turkey sandwiches to come.

I do a simple/standard recipe every year:
Heat 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of OJ.  (I opt for fresh squeezed.)  Bring it to a bowl and in goes a bag of fresh cranberries.  Cook down by simmering until all berries pop, and the longer you let it go, the more it will thicken up.  It will jell a bit more as it cools too.
 Go nuts and add some orange zest in the last few minutes, cinnamon, etc!

Here is a link to many tried and true recipes.
Go for it.  You won't be sorry!
