It's nearly a dying art.
I always go with gift in hand. I usually take flowers since that I what I like to get. Or wine. Or both. Since that is what I like to get.
I also will do little gift bags of my homemade soaps for certain friends. My soaps are better than most of the craft soaps now selling for $5-10/bar these days (because I use really expensive oils and super-fat my soaps with those--almond, avocado, shea butter, cocoa butter, etc.) and they are always joyously received.
When someone invites me to dinner, unless asked, I never carry in a dish. I've no idea what the host/ess is making, I wasn't invited to potluck, and I don't want to interfere with the menu and the sideboard arrangements.
