Excellent point, Joe. One would think you knew a Frenchman.

I love the thought but I don't love having to deal with the gift immediately.
Do not bring something that needs to be refrigerated!!!!
When my sister-in-law comes for Christmas, one of her stepkids sends an Edible Arrangement. A big one for 3 people. I have no room in the fridge for such a thing.
Everybody knows sister loves fruit...even me! I make sure there is fruit for her. I've asked them not to send this but it goes in one ear and out the other. It's easy for them. Rant over
