jener8tor:
The parents of one of my son's friends has invited my family over this evening for dessert, which will be a get-to-know you meeting. I would like to bring something, however, don't have a clue and feel uncomfortable asking. Any ideas would be appreciated !!

Chocolate Cake:
Bring something that you would like to receive if you were the hostess:  a bottle of wine or a framed picture of the two kids.

Harriet Jones:
What about a package of nice coffee/tea/hot chocolate?

Don't take wine as a hostess gift unless you are absolutely sure they drink.  Not only could it be a waste of money, it could be offensive to some people.

I'd stick with things like the tea/chocolate/flowers that another poster mentioned.  Alcohol is always iffy if you don't know the person.

Lisbeth:
Maybe a gift certificate or coupon for something they can do with the kids?
