The parents of my daughter's boyfriend were passing through town for a quick visit with him and to meet my daughter for the first time. There wasn't time for my husband and I to meet them but I wanted to at least send them a greeting until we meet them sometime in the future. What do you give someone when you don't know them?
Whatever you give them, I think it should be wrapped nicely. I could do a whole post on my ideas about gift giving and maybe I will do that in the future. However, I believe a gift is not a gift unless a lot of thought goes into it. No matter what is being given, I think it should always be wrapped as nicely as possible. That alone shows that you care enough to take the time to make something look special. So, what can you give a total stranger that puts a big smile on their face and a food memory in their mind?
A dozen killer chocolate chip cookies is a good start.
My daughter said that The Chef's parents were totally thrilled.
