Whoever said money can't buy happiness is more than welcome to deposit it into my bank account, however there is something to be said for "it's the thought that counts." Whether you're headed out East for the weekend to visit friends, stay with your boyfriend's parents, or you're just taking a solo vacation and house-sitting your boss's beach-shack, bringing a "thank you for having me" present is always the right thing to do. Rather than sending the classic, "I couldn't think of anything so I sent an edible arrangement," head on over to our top picks for locally-made Hamptons goodies.
