It would be awkward and rude if you didn’t have anything under the tree, knowing that she will be attending the dinner when everyone else opens presents. Just get something generic if you don’t know her interests, such as a box of chocolates or a scented candle. Be creative.

@Ember78: To me it sounds like they wouldn’t be opening presents at that time…it sounds like it would just be OP and her Darling Husband and her friend…

OP, if you’re having her over for dinner and you and your Darling Husband aren’t going to be opening any gifts at that time, I wouldn’t say you need to add a gift exchange.  I’m sure she will be happy just to be able to spend Christmas with friends!

Also are we talking about Christmas Eve dinner or Christmas Day dinner?  Just curious because you said there would be presents under the tree – won’t you have opened them on the morning of Christmas?

I would get her something small: a candle like Ember78 said, a scarf, a book. Whether you exchange any other gifts at that time or not, it would still be nice to give her a little something.

@cutexkitty: How about a super soft throw blanket and a cute ornament? Who doesn’t love an awesome throw? And I always love getting a new ornament 🙂

i would go a small gift like @Goodatlove: suggested. have it wraped just dont address it so if she does bring something you can bring it out and be all preped and realy to go. usually right after christmas or on black friday i get a couple extra generic gifts to have “just in case” for cases like this or someone unexpected turns up.
