Earlier, when we were invited for lunches or dinners, it used to take some time to think about what to gifts the hosts, whether they might already have it, whether they would like it or would get it exchanged, where to shop from, and so on.
Then I started baking cookies and brownies and gave the baked goods as gifts. Not many people bake, not many bake without eggs, people's kids especially like cookies and brownies, it is easier to bake and gift something for everyone to eat and enjoy, and putting in a little effort in this kind of gift is more obvious.
While I used to take the baked goods placed in tissue paper inside a transparent box, last month I added a little personal touch to it by writing a decorative label/note on the box. So now the host knows what the baked good is made of as well as when to consume it by. It looks thoughtful and it looks good.
Go an extra mile - sometimes it is absolutely worth it.
