My hubby and I were invited to a friend's 40th birthday party dinner at the birthday girl's house. The invitation specifically states "no gifts please" but I'm going to take that as no birthday presents for my friend. I'd feel really awkward not going with at least a hostess gift--after all, they are taking the time to have the dinner in their home.
Please, thoughts for a gift to bring with me that doesn't violate the spirit of the "no gifts, please"???
