Remember this: When you come to someone’s house, it is always nice to arrive with a little something. That is never inappropriate!

Simple flowers

A single big round flower in a little dollar-store bud vase.


A kind greeting

A sweet card for them—encouraging if they're down, celebratory if it's a happy day, or one that will make them laugh if it's a just-because visit.


A cheese wedge (this may just be me, but I am never sorry to receive cheese of any kind).


A used copy of a book you think they'd enjoy—bonus points if you write an inscription.


A little DIY

If you are an artsy or crafty person, maybe just a little tiny thing you drew/doodled/lettered/made for them.

Something sweet

If you are a cooking/baking person, a treat of some sort. Actually, if it's a one-on-one visit, why not swing by a local pastry place and grab a nice-looking tart or some macaroons?
