Hmm. A nice box of candy? Or some pretty soaps and such. Of course when I have done this it is “White Elephant” so funnier things get the most love, like a head massasger or portable ping pong.

What about a pretty candle/candle holder? The ones at bath and body works smell so delicious right now! Or even a lotion/handsoap combo?

For a lady, I woill snatch up a hand soap and a candle from bath & body. They’re usually on sale this time of year. I just bought 2 three wick candles for 20 🙂

@les105:  For $10 I’d buy some chocolates.. but that doesn’t get you too far.

I usually cheat and spend $15-20 for these gift exchanges just because it’s easier to find stuff 😛 like a hot chocolate set w. a mug and some extras… you can find them at any coffee shop.

If its for a woman, Victorias Secret has $10 gifts. You can get a mini size of their fragrances or mists or other stuff too. Or I would go to Bath and Body Works and get a lotion or spray.

I would purchase a 100 Grand candy bar and the balance in scratch tickets since it gives them the opportunity of independant wealth…and hey, everyone likes candy.
