Unless you’ve been a complete and utter asshole all year, more likely than not, you are going to be invited to at least one holiday party if not many. As most of us know, it’s in poor taste to turn up without a gift for your generous host or hostess. Emily Post would have your head and Martha Stewart would wind up back in the pen. Sure, there is the obvious gesture of bringing libations, but isn’t that a little selfish knowing full well that you’ll be the one to down that bottle?
Also, when all the party is over, the hangover has set in, and all of the bottles have been sent to recycling, wouldn’t it be nice for your generous hosts to have something to remember the night by other than your friend John’s topless rendition of “Hello”?
