We occasionally get invited to each others homes for celebrations or just casual get~togethers.
It's a very nice gesture to bring the hosts a small gift. Fresh flowers are always perfect but if you like to be different, there are other suggestions. I would advise not to go over the top though, people always feel the need to reciprocate and you don't want it to get competitive.
Here are some other suggestions.
1. Candle (be careful of scents though)
2. Plant, a fresh herb from a local nursery is always fun
3. Box of chocolates
4. Package of fun cocktail napkins
(subtle hint for next time)
5. The ol' standby, a bottle of wine :)
(This beauty was a gift for keeping our G'kids for the weekend while our kids went to Napa)
If you haven't made this a habit in the past, it's never too late to pick it up!
Better yet, invite someone to dinner this weekend!
Thanks for visiting!
