We recently met a couple and have been invited to their home for a dinner party. My husband overheard me talking to my mom about what hostess gift I should bring. When I got off the phone, he asked me why I always bring a gift to a get together. I told him that I was raised to do so as a small token of appreciation. He thinks it's crazy to do still that in this day and age.
Do you bring the host/hostess a gift when you are invited to their home or am I just holding on to an antiquated form of etiquette?
