So every year DH and all his childhood friends get together for Labor Day. This year we, along with our 2 dogs, will be staying at a family friend’s for the weekend. I have no clue what to bring! On the property these people own a bakery and catering company and already have the meals planned.
What should I bring as a guest? I don’t want to go empty handed.

I would ask them if you could bring some drinks of some kind. Honestly though, if they own a bakery, they’re probably set! I’m with you though, I hate going empty handed.

Do they have kids? If so I would bring something for the kids, maybe a lawn game or something they could use together. If not, what about wine? Some sort of house gift could work but I guess that is hard if you have not seen their house. Is there a local specialty from where oyu live that you could bring? Even if it is food, if it is something they can’t get or is authentic (i.e. VT maple syrup and candies bought from a local sugar shack). I always love when someone brings me their favorite wine, especially I have one friend whose FI has family with a vineyard and he always brings their wine to dinner which is super nice.

@Pacificgirl- They have coolers full of drinks since they have an even on thier property early saturday morning. I asked what I could bring and of course they said nothing.
@Vanillanut- No kids. My LO will be the first baby to the crew. It’s 3 families DH grew up with and now all of the kids get together every labor day, and by kids I mean 25+. Would you think it’s okay for a pregnant woman to bring wine? Other than that I live in Boston, no special things here, and we are only going about 1.5 hours.
