I forgot--hostess gifts

(sorry previous got posted twice)

Hostess gifts--in the North, anything japanned or cloisonne is a sure-fire hit. In the south ruching is major. Logos on gifts a non-no in South & near Mexico.

Hope this helps.

What is ruching?

Why are logos in the south a no-no?

I'm not sure where you get your information, Elizabeth, but certainly not from an etiquette book. I've never heard any of your suggestions mentioned as possible hostess gifts. And what in the world is ruching? And logos? Who would give a gift with a logo on it anyway?

Sorry this post was meant as a response to a question about the difference between Americans from different regions.

Elizabeth - that still doesn't answer the questions. What is ruching? And logos on gifts?

I like those Hostess Fruit Pies and Ho Hos. But for some reason I think you fodorites like Ding Dongs.

Here is what Elizabeth was TRYING to say if she spoke decent English and had ten fingers to type with, neither of which are the case here. Please allow me to translate:

For hostesses in Northern Japan, clothes are a sure fire hit.

In the South, rush hour is major.

Gifts with "Yankee" logos are a no-no in the South, and in Mexico.

This should, I think, clarify. You're welcome.
