Meeting my partner in-person this Sunday for the first time, over lunch at his home. I’m bringing his daughter a little gift, should I bring something for his wife? Is that weird? I was thinking flowers or something. What’s an appropriate gift to bring. In my European culture it’s customary to not show up empty handed to someone’s home for the first time. She’s European also.

Flowers or wine are great

Ahh yes! Wineeee thank you!

I think it’s a nice gesture! another option is some sort of dessert for lunch, like fancy cookies.

Background: there’s no concern over me being a threat if anyone’s wondering. I’m queer and happily in love.💕

Pastries!

I would say wine or dessert! You don’t need to bring something that’s specifically for her. The gift for the daughter is a nice touch.

Fancy cookies covers the wife and the kid.
