Bob, why not talk to your host & hostess and ask them what to bring?

Because they always tell me to just bring me. <g>

I gave them a dozen $10 Walmart gift cards that I received as a bonus for selling policies for one of the insurers to get their 2 girls a little something extra for Christmas.

I would also bring a gift of sweets for your hostess.

I once took some strawberries, whipped cream, strawberry short cakes and some rainbow sherbert. Their youngest daughter seemed to like one of the shortcakes with some whipped cream, w/o strawberries. The sherbert is still in their freezer. *sigh*

and I’d probably wrap the sweets in red paper, me

I realize this tradition and might just gift some cash in a red envelope. That way they can get something they will like when they want it.

Thanks, CJV!
