I'm meeting my boyfriend's parents for the first time when we visit for Easter this Sunday. What is a good gift to bring to their house? Uneasy Ellen
Dear Uneasy Ellen
Flowers are a safe bet and they are beautiful. Ask your boyfriend what his Mom fancies. If he doesn't know, get a colorful, mixed arrangement. Flowers are a peaceful, neutral and thoughtful gesture. If that doesn't appeal to you - bring dessert. Choose a bakery you really like and put together a box of assorted cookies or pastries. Sweets will leave them with a sweet impression of you.
