So let's say this is your first Christmas with some "new" family. What should you do, what should you say? I don't want you to freak out about it, but you have about 27 seconds to get it right.

According to a survey from Digital you have approximately 27 seconds to make a great, first impression. That's not whole lot of time people. I mean, surprising new family with a gift card to their favorite place to eat in one thing....But here are 10 things to do, to make that great first impression:
