My supervisor has invited me. Do you bring a gift? I'm on a super tight budget. Ideas? Also, how long do you stay? It runs from noon to 6pm. Going alone so feel a bit nervous... thanks

Not knowing your profession my instinct is 1:00-3:00 or 4:00. If it is a specific event then I would adjust the time. I wouldn't say the actual time but keep an internal clock.

I would bring either wine or some fresh flowers. If it is an event you could bring something like a chip and dip set if it was a tailgate. A cheesecake/ cake is always nice as well. If you bake a plate of fresh cookies.

Good luck and enjoy yourself!

I would get something inexpensive- at least a card, or a bottle of wine. I would stay for a couple hours, and make up an excuse for why you are leaving (meeting someone for dinner will work). I would go from 1:30-3:30- that way they don't feel obligated to serve you a meal or anything. Hardly anyone ever goes to housewarming/open house on time, so if you get there at noon, you will probably be the first one.

Have a great time!


I have been cheated on by 3 different men, and I have more DDays than anyone ever should. I am here, just trying to pickup the pieces.

At least the current man "only" cyber-cheated.

You could also get a plant for them, something like a peace lily. It's very difficult to kill, so it's a great gift for the green-thumb challenged.

Go to good will or any thrift store, look for a unique serving dish of some sort, and get it for next to nothing, and then make something, a dip, a tray of cheeses, whatever, and plan on spending about an hour.

Most of the time when folks have that wide of a range of time, they really have more of an open house, food buffett thing, and really just want to show off their new home. They shouldn't be looking for gifts. So something simple like above, or a bottle of wine, with some cheap charms is always a good choice.
