Is it weird to give gifts


Recommended Posts

...to people you don't know well?


The mom and brother/-in law of dear friends are visiting from out of state. Tonight we are going over to our friends' house for a casual dinner and will be exchanging gifts with them. We have met the extended family a couple of times before and we get along very well. I thought it might be nice to bring something simple for each of them (embroidered tea towel for the mom, maybe something like a maple syrup sampler for brother) but then in a moment of self doubt I wondered if that would be awkward?

If they are from out of state then a small "local" flavor gift might be great. Ornament from your area, in our area it would be blueberry maple syrup (our county is one of the top blueberry areas in the US), etc.

That's why I though maple syrup (very local). Although now I'm thinking maybe just a really nice bottle of local microbrew that he can enjoy while he's visiting. Keep it simple. :)
