This will be my first time playing it, and I’m so excited. I’ll go ahead and tell all you ladies what my gift is (There was a $5.00 max, so you know the gifts aren’t gonna be that great). Anyways, I bought a box of Sugar Babies candy at Dollar Tree, and sliced under the end of it with a knife (so you can’t tell it’s been opened) and I wrapped some money in some plastic wrap & stuck it in with the candy, then hot glued the end back shut.
It seriously looks like it’s never been opened. So when someone gets it, they are going to think it’s just a cheap box of candy, but when the game’s over, I’ll tell them to open it up 🙂

It’s where people bring a gift (wrapped) & everyone draws a # (from 1 to whatever # of people are playing). Whoever gets #1 goes first & chooses a gift. Then person #2 can either pick their OWN gift, or take the gift from person #1.
At the end of the game, the gifts are revealed.
Sometimes they are revealed at the beginning, but we are playing “blind” dirty santa.

This post just gave me a flashback to The Office’s Dirty Santa episode, hehee

That is a great gift! LOL I love it 🙂
I hadn’t heard the term “Dirty Santa” until I moved here to GA. In CA people call it White Elephant.

@ Miss Bravo – I had heard the term White Elephant before, but I didn’t know what it was 🙂
Well, the dirty santa game is over now, and I ended up with 2 cheap (Dollar store no doubt) floating candles in the shape of hawaiian shirts.
Maybe those will come in handy for a summertime party next year *sigh*
I never win anything cool 😛 Seriously, the gift I ended up with was the stupidest one. Oh well – I’ll stop whining now.

How much money did you sneak in there girl?
I did one a couple weeks ago and got cute plates. Glad I got something a girl brought because some of the stuff guys brought were bad, like CDs in the wrong cases!

We did this with my fam just this last weekend! With $25.00 gift cards, it was so much fun! Have a good time 🙂

Cool – kinda like a white elephant gift exchange? I love those! That’s a fun/sneaky gift!
@galacticpony – I love the office, but I don’t remember that one – what happened in that episode again? I wanna try to find it & watch it when I’ve got some downtime here at work… hehe

The Office episode is the one where there is like a $20 max or something but Michael buys Ryan an iPod because he has a mancrush. Hilarity ensues.

@ MissAsB- I only put $3 in there.. call me a cheapo but we are broke-o due to the wedding. (I was gonna say wedding-o, but thought that would just be way too goofy:P)
Yeah, it was fun. And I was glad my gift was one of the first ones to go. I just figured it would be left laying there since it sure did look and sound like a regular ol’ box o candy.
