So we’re doing a white elephant gift exchange at work and I have no idea what to get. I would love to hear people’s suggestions. Here are the guidelines:
$25 or under
an actual gift (not a gag gift)
no alcohol, (we have a pregnant girl, a girl with two DUIs and a super Christian guy)
nothing to do with cooking (most poeple i work with have never even boiled water)
any ideas ladies?

Starbucks giftcard is usually a hit at our white elephant, a set of scarf and gloves- we had two scarfs that were rather popular, we usually have someone that brings a cute fleece blanket, etc.
Bring something you would want- my pet peeve is when people bring things that obviously aren’t anywhere close to the spending limit, or bring a gag when no gags are allowed.

books a million sells cool mind teaser games/toys; what about a magazine subscription (you could make a ‘gift certificate’ telling them you’ll order whatever magazine they want depending on whether a male or female gets the gift); giftcards; a ‘bathroom reader’ book
