That was the headline of an article on my News page this morning. Really? Amid all of the other things going on right now, my main concern is if I am a good party guest? This was number 8:
Enter empty-handed? It's always a good idea to bring a little something-something for the host of the soireé. Something simple yet budget-friendly like bath salts, chocolates, a box of stationery, or a candle will do the trick. (Target and CostPlus are two favorite places to pick up affordable and stylish goodies). Bringing a gift is the classy way of saying "thanks for having me" -- a token of appreciation.
Bring me bath salts, I'll sprinkle them on your food. If I invite you over and you bring me a box of stationery, I am going to use it to send you a request that you not visit anymore. Besides, I always thought that a cigarette was the best way to say 'Thanks for having me.'
