Before my kids leave to go to a friend’s house, I always tell them to be on their best behavior and to use good manners. More than one friend has not been welcomed back to our home when they have been a particularly bad guest. The same goes for us big kids.

In our most recent issue of The Local Palate, we offer ideas for gifts that you can present to your favorite host or hostess to help insure that you will always be welcomed back to the festivities. We have plenty of other ideas up our sleeve to help you tailor your gift perfectly to your friend’s desires. Choose one or make them all.
