I can’t take credit for this since my co-worker told me about it the other day. CHIA-PETS! I thought it was a great idea!

@sparklerunner:  I always end up getting some kind of interesting ceramic coffee cups.

I always end up at TJ Maxx or Marshalls and they seem to always have some random item in the kitchen/home good sections.

this might seem kind of cheap, but i know someone who took cereal and a cute cereal bowl/spoon to a white elephant party and everyone was fighting for it, haha.

I just brought a coloring book, a giant box of crayons, a mini bag of Lindor chocolates and a single shooter of booze. It got stolen three times, haha.

…We ARE all teachers, though, so that may have had something to do with it. (One girl even yelled at her boyfriend to “steal the chocolate and booze!”)

i bought a mini bluetooth  speaker for my work event for $29. i love and use my jambox one all the time and this is just a cheaper knockoff but hopefully it will still be useful and fun

Do you have a cool and eclectic near you? I would go there. Also, I like going to the dollor store and getting as much random stuff as possible (must have playdough)

DVDs, something with wide appeal like Casablanca or My Girl Friday (can’t go wrong with a classic!)

We just did this (though we call it Naughty Santa) and the most sought after gift was a “movie night” package… with a gift certificates to go see a movie, popcorn, candies, a bottle of wine… and I think that’s it.
