Barefoot Contessa had an episode recently where she "set up" the house for some friends that were returning from a long vacation.  She bought some fresh flowers, made macaroni and cheese and left some sweet treats in the fridge.  Ya know, cause when you come home there’s no food in the house and who wants to go out to the grocery store first thing.  You could do a little adaptation to that.  Make a casserole that all they have to do is pop into oven, maybe a pint of ice cream or home made cookies.

Aww you guys are so nice to your friends. My friends and I, however, love playing tricks on each other. So I was about to tell you to decorate their car or to cover their bed in something totally annoying but harmless (like… cottonballs?)

 I think having some food ready for them is a great idea.  This is kind of random, but if their pet is big (like, not fish) then you could get a little shirt from the pet store and decorate it saying, welcome home Mom and Dad or something, that would be cute.

What about having a couple beer mugs/pilsner glasses out for them to see, and say in your note that the beer’s in the fridge?

My mom had gone to our house and just cleaned for us. She washed our sheets and towels and straightened up. We left the house in shambles so it was nice to come home to! She left a bottle of champagne and glasses on the counter and note saying to drink it as we’re opening gifts! It was such a nice thought and I love that she did it!

Hi, I was reading your coments becasue me and my boyfriend were searching some ideas for our friends. My sister recently found a page (cancionespararegalar.com) wich is awesome, they make personalized songs and the service is very original, but I don’t want to repeat the gift. Any sugestions of something really original? Thanks!
