Okay, so ummmm here's my question:
I'm going to Passover at my boyfriend's house and a few other people are invited too.  Is it appropriate to bring a bread and butter type gift to such an occasion (clearly not actual bread and butter) like flowers or something, or is it completely innapropriate to bring anything considering it is Passover and there are many people coming who will not be bringing anything 'cause they're my boyfriend's college roommates- but I am his girlfriend, and this is the first time I've met them.  I have no idea.
Sincerely,
So Goy it Hurts

well, do you want to bring something crafty or just something nice?  because if you want to bring something nice, just bring manichevitz.  it's fun weak yummy jewish wine. Smiley  if you want to be crafty, well, there's tons you could do.  you could make a seder plate, a plate that's divided in different parts for dinner parts of the ceremony -  search for seder plate on google to see the sections.  or you could make an afikoman cover - the afikoman is the matzah in the middle of the table.  you could take a plain white hankerchief and embroider it, or tie-dye it, or paint it, or anything else your little goy heart desires.  Smiley  or whoever's leading the ceremony is supposed to be able to recline on a pillow - you could decorate a pillow in some way that would be fun yet useful afterwards.  any of these would show that you cared about his holiday enough to research it.

on a side note, stop stealing our jewish boys, shiksa!! SmileySmileySmiley (i kid, i kid)

Nice flowers and/or a box of KLP (Kosher Le'Pesach = certified ok to eat on Passover) chocolates are always appreciated. How about making some funky fake flowers (ribbon, wool, paper...lots of options) so you're giving them a bunch to last the 8 days...and beyond?

This might be more Channukah than passover, but you might want to keep this idea in mind in case you get invited to that in December! = )

You could also make little things to represent the plagues, or maybe even "the four questions."

I wouldn't suggest making a seder plate b/c that's not a "bread and butter" gift(it's so funny you used that term because you can't eat bread on passover! Grin) Anyway, you can make them maybe hot holders or something lke that. I'm going to also say Manichevitz(spelled wrong oops. Little Tidbit: that's a pesach wine. There are plenty of other jewish wines during the year. I'm not a wine wiz. I should ask my dad. There's also Gefen and other wines I don't know the name of) because that's very appropriate, Good Luck!

Definitely wine or desserts (like the marshmallows covered in chocolate- mmmm!) Or maybe some nuts/dried fruit for after dinner. Just make sure you check the food with your boyfriend first to avoid a non-kosher faux pas! I wouldn't suggest a seder plate or any other sort of religious artifact for the same reason. Maybe you could knit your boyfriend a kippah (yarmulke, headcovering, etc.).  He could show it off at dinner, and his parents would fall in love with you!
