i have a yankee swap to go to next wk and need to get something to bring. it’s a $25 gift, but it’s with men & women, 17-70…
wondering what’s your favorite item you’ve gotten in a yankee swap??
mine was one of those entertainment books that had coupons for EVERYTHING in it, saved FI & i a ton! we went some places that we wouldn’t normally have gone because we had free admission or half off dinner coupons or whatever, used it all year=)

Alcohol is always a hit.
Gift cards to a gender neutral store like Barnes and Nobel are good, too.

Recently I got the first and second season of How I met your mother – it was on sale at Target a 2 pack for $20! Alcohol is definitely a great way to go. My DH gave a bottle of red wine and a red wine aerator that was a good gift. Someone else did a bottle of whiskey, nice glasses and whiskey rocks – another desired one! My MIL did a cupcake stand, cupcake cook book, cupcake pan and box of red velvet mix – that was really cute too!

my cousin got two live lobsters and everyone was jealous. I know, it’s random and not for everyone, but he was able to make lobsters for dinner and lobster rolls for lunch.
