Put some homemade cookies (or buy some homemade cookies from your local bakery), slap 'em on this here $7 platter and call it a day!
If you ever come to my house for a holiday will you bring me these?
Maybe you are going to someone's house who has different political views than you - show them you care by giving them some Democrat or Republican glasses. Awkward laughs will follow - promise!
Dare I suggest you get some alphabet mugs and a pound of coffee from your favorite local coffee house? Or your favorite tea? That way the gift is one part personal and one part generic. It's a sure thing!
