We do this with my in-laws every year…this year I went to Big Lots and got a set of 5 hot sauces (ranging from mild to atomic), and another of 5 BBQ sauces (each from a different part of the country)…but I know my brothers in law will be fighting over them. I think the hot sauce was $5 an the BBQ was $10.

i almost always buy as-seen-on-tv gifts for these…maybe the ove glove or those big cake molds shaped like a cupcake or donut?

haha!  I don’t know what a Yankee Swap gift is but I thought you meant you needed gifts to swap that had MLB Yankees insignias on them.  Is this another term for a white elephant gift exhange?

Are gift cards allowed? Maybe to Starbucks or Target or something?

I found this amazing thing at Walmart this year. It was from the Better Home section. Basically it’s a pretty pot thing with a lightbulb inside and a lid/tray on top. You get cubes of wax (they have tons of great scents…we got peppermint and gingerbread) and they melt and remelt and release a lovely scent. Instead of a candle basically. The wax is like $2 and the holder thing was somewhere between $10 and $15.

@Mrs Sarah McK: That’s a great idea!!

You could do exceptionally bad movies. Get them for $1. 😀  We once gave someone a World Record book from 1977. Stress balls that you squeeze could be fun, or some bright socks.

@Mrs Sarah McK: Great idea.
