I would bring some flowers, and something little for the kids (like a $10 gift certificate for each kid to Barnes and Noble or Toys R Us or something)

hmmm my guess would be they are Christian if they are having a family dinner on that day.  does your coworker drink? you can always ask him if he thinks his family would enjoy a bottle of wine. because that seems like a good option! otherwise the fudge of some cookies sounds pretty safe.

I would bring a festive floral arrangement…just something to look pretty.

Fruit is always good–maybe something festive like clementines, a couple pomegranates, and a coloring book or sticker book for each little one.

A fruit basket is usually nice, simple and thoughtful.

For the kids, maybe some toys or books would suffice. Or even movie coupons.

@Lily_of_the_valley:  As long as you bring anything, regardless of what it may be, it’ll be seen as a nice gesture Smile. The fudge sounds delicious, and as for the kids, maybe a small gift card should suffice. Or even more sweets, like a box of chocolates. When it comes to wine and alochol, it really depends on the family, but most of the Indians I know shy away from that.

Hope you have a good time!
