Oh, how we’ve missed parties! Nothing beats being surrounded by loved ones (who might be a little sweaty if you’re making use of the dance floor), a spirited toast, and of course, an enviable outfit. We’re all overjoyed to have a brimming social calendar again at long last. But let us not forget to express our gratitude to the gracious hosts helping bring parties back from the brink after two years of lackluster Zoom happy hours and drive-by celebrations. What better way to show your appreciation than by showing up with present — they are supplying the drinks, after all. It’s just a matter of courtesy.
