My daughter, a college student, stayed at the home of her roommate's uncle for a week in New York. She 's 21. Should she send a thank you gift ? Should I if she doesn't ?

Thank you Note
by: Ms P Etiquette


Your daughter should most emphatically send a thank you note to her roommate's uncle for his hospitality. A gift is not required and could be awkward unless they were all acquainted before the visit. Bringing the hosts a small house gift upon arrival is the correct way to handle this situation.
