No Gifts - Often the postscript to an invitation, and always one we choose to ignore. The joy of giving a token of your appreciation to the host or hostess of the occasion is always worth the slight rule-bending. Presenting a small package with an imaginative gift inside is chance to preemptively show your thanks for being included. Ideally, bring something that will add to the ambience of the gathering upon its unwrapping. A good guest knows to brings ease and conversation to the table, and also remembers that as a rule, showing up empty-handed is never a good look. -KJ
