It's not uncommon to attend a grownup dinner party and remember to bring a host or hostess gift — wait, adult dinner party, what's that? We kid (slightly), but we ran across a fun idea the other day that carries this tradition over to our younger counterparts when they visit friends or attend parties or events. Can you tell what's wrapped as a gift in the photo above?

Camilla over at Family Chic has wrapped small packages of gum in pages from a comic book found at the check out line at her local grocer. These small gifts aren't anything major, but they do remember to extend a common courtesy that seems to have since been forgotten.

If your child's friend showed up with a small prize for you or your kids when they arrived, just imagine how much it would make your day. Other small ideas to wrap might be small candies or even fruit or vegetables from the garden once things are in full swing outdoors. Hear more about Camilla's memories on this style of gift over at Family Chic.

What do you think would make a great host or hostess gift for children to give? Let us know below!
