what to give for a host gift?

pinstripeprincess | Feb 29, 2008 10:29 AM

doesn't sound too complicated right? i've been invited to a dinner party where i'd like to impress the host and will for sure be bringing a host gift. all threads on this board seem to agree that a host gift is a gift. meant for them to enjoy at their own discretion.

so here's where i feel the tricky bit is. my host is definitely much spendier than me and i feel that bringing something homemade will have a much bigger impact. the dinner party will be vegan, for the main guest of honour, but the host is definitely not a vegan. do i bring something vegan or not? or should i just bite the bullet and buy something nice and spendy?

i was originally thinking of a tin of madeleines in interesting flavours (i've been playing with recipes for a while) or something else that would equally have eggs.
