Thanksgiving is fast approaching in Canada, and traditionally, this means visiting with friends and family and sitting down to a yummy turkey dinner with all the trimmings.
If you are lucky enough to be invited to someone's home for this Thanksgiving (or at any time of year) it's traditional etiquette to bring a gift of some kind, rather than showing up empty-handed. The host or hostess was kind enough to invite you and has gone to considerable time and effort preparing their home and the meal. If you are invited to a dinner party, a special event, or especially if invited to an overnight stay, presenting a gift upon arrival is the way to go. But what to bring?
Gift giving may have cultural considerations, but generally you can't go wrong with edible gifts of fairly mainstream food selections. You might want to ensure that your hosts enjoy sweets or chocolate, and if not, then go for other foods. And of course, the safest and loveliest gift is flowers or plants. Flowers are pretty much universally accepted gifts that are sure to be appreciated by your hosts. For holiday events, it's an even nicer gesture if you can keep your selection in keeping with the season.
