What is an appropriate and not expensive hostess gift to take

Customer Question

What is an appropriate and not expensive hostess gift to take to a Sunday School party? I don't know the host/hostess nor any of their preferences. Is it even necessary to take a hostess gift? I am new in this community, and I want to do the proper thing.
Thank you.

You're actually right in believing no gift is necessary; however, afterward, sending a 'thank you' card via regular mail (not email) to the hosts/hostesses of the event is proper. These days many people accept an email thank you, ***** ***** may certainly do that as well, but nothing get noticed more than a card one can touch and that gets one's attention like something in the mail (snail mail) You may also contact the hosts/hostesses beforehand and ask if there is anything you can do or contribute to setting up the event. This is a gesture also sure to be noticed and remembered - a great first impression!
