Occasionally show up with a present. A guest is to take a present to the hostess of any event where he or she did not have to work or pay to attend. The present is to be carried by the senior male guest when in tandem and is to be given to the hostess (when there is one). Avoid the expecting receiver always being able to say, "Here he comes again, one hand just as long as the other.”
Presents can be omitted at events where you had to pay to attend when you are there to do work, you are a single male, or when you are young. Avoid pushing the latter two rules.
A table for presents can be omitted. If no one else has bought a gift, give your gift in private.
You could bring personality to the table. Have a story (or two) prepared that can be shared. You might bring a card game, or know one that can be played.
A guest has been seen invited to an event to be a role model. Someone is waiting for you to show someone else how to ask, “How can I be of help? Volunteer to help set a table, eat in an established style, clear a table, ask where each item is to be placed, help wash dishes, offer to strip and remake a station, call and say thank you, and send a thank you note.  Most have someone in training.
