Quick Question



I still need to buy my family Dirty Santa/Yankee Santa gift.  We do the trade every year and it's the best part of Christmas.  Our limit is $25-30.  It does not need to be unisex but it does need to be something that is liked by more than just me.  It cannot be anything from Bath and Body or the like, because no one really likes that stuff.  It needs to be something I can buy before Christmas because there is not enough time to have anything shipped.  I cannot make it because I am pushing getting my list done as it is. 




So those are some guidelines...now go.  Go forth and leave me a comment with fun suggestions.  Usually I come up with an idea six months in advance.  This year...  I am five days away from giving this yet to be conceived gift.  HELP!

My family decided to start doing dirty Santa this year instead of drawing names. Ours had to be unisex. I picked up a Waterford Marquis ornament from Macy's They run about $25 and who doesn't like a pretty ornament for thier tree

We bought the Australian beer glass from Brookstone as a gift this year, hubs thought it was neat and wanted one for his own. I think it was $20 or $25 bucks.

You could make a fun movie bucket with a movie, popcorn, candy, and soda in a popcorn bucket. Then I would stick in a gift card to a movie theater chain as well.

A shake weight! Our family's limit was $10 so I couldn't use it. But I think it would be hilarious!

how about a bottle of wine or 6 pack of seasonal beers plus some snacks/candy. If you have a cost plus/world market nearby, that would be a good place to go

We do this every year also, and it is always hard to come up with something thats good. Last year I did an Italian gift basket, and it was a big hit. I got a big pasta bowl from Ross, you can also do a collander, filled it with all sorts of goodies, fancy olive oil, pasta, wine, a spoon rest shaped like a tomato(from the dollar store), jar of fancy sauce and fancy cheese, my family likes to eat! The Liquor gifts sets are always a good one too. Have fun!! We did one at work this year and it was crazy!! Shake weight was actually there, not a big hit, gift cards to restautrants ruled that one. Merry Christmas!!

Maybe some pretty Christmas ornaments presented in a nice basket? I had a Yankee Swap at work last week and it was definitely tough to pick a unisex gift. We had a $10 limit so I ended doing a Starbucks giftcard.

Last year my friends did this and I received a book, Three Cups of Tea, wrapped up in a blanket. It was perfect for the winter time. If your family likes to read that might work well.

I also have a family swap, our limit is $20 this year. I'm going with a movie gift card taped to a package of raisinettes.
