Guest at Christmas

I'm a guest at my aunts for Christmas, what should I take with me? Already have presents etc, but was thinking of wine/champagne & chocolates? Anyone have any ideas or views on what to take?

Why don't you ask her?

That might go down far better than turning up with something she already has.

Nice wee bunch of flowers would be my suggestion.

Small houseplants are a nice option.

I split up my big YUCCA into eleven small yuccas 18 months ago.

Somebody is a-gettin' a yucca for Christmas!

Toothbrush, whisky, and cigarettes.

We are having guests for Christmas this year, and if one of them turns up with a pot-plant or a bunch of flowers I think they'll get a muted reception.

What we want - and I suspect many others feel the same way - are practical items like bottles of champagne and things we can eat.

A willingness to roll up your sleeves and get stuck into the washing up usually goes down well, I think.

WTM ".. get stuck into the washing up.."

For Heaven's sake, I'm a man - that's not my job. God gave women small feet just so that they could get closer to the sink - so who am I to argue?
