So DHs family does Christmas a little late and I have to buy our gift exchange gift for it this weekend. The guys are supposed to bring one guy gift, and the girls bring one girl gift about $20-25. However, if I get one more candle or bottle of lotion I just might scream! I bet others feel the same way so I wanted to do something more fun/creative/practical.
What was the best white elephant/regular gift exchange gift you ever received? I want to bring the present that everybody wants to steal! 😛

A little waterproof bluetooth speaker! It is amazing. Another fun one was “Date Night in a Box”, it was snacks and a redbox voucher and stuff like that. Also, one was like…a warm night in– a fuzzy blanket and socks and cocoa mix.

Alcohol and cute glasses/wine accessories always get fought over at our gift exchange.

Car emergency kit. Came with a jumper cable, flashlight, tire pressure gauge,and a bunch of other stuff. I’ve actually used it to jump myself and others before.

Ours this year was a blast! The hot gift was actually on the female pile and it consisted of a tattooed guys calendar (R rated), a bottle of wine in a wine carrier (looks like a pink alligator purse) and some various candles and bath soaks. I ended up stealing that one but it was later stolen from me so I ended up with a bottle of Moscato and a really nice blanket.
My gift contribution was actually a little over budget lol… I spent about $45 but the price was between $25 and $30 I got a gift cert for a pedicure/manicure and added some nail files, cute socks, gourmet cocoa and an awesome cocoa mug. There was also a little ornament in there and a candle that smelled like cookies! Lol

Oh yeah the coolest gift from this year in my opinion was this massive box and inside was a big box of popcorn, the new Jason Bourne movie and a case of beer. Clever one. It was opened nearly last so it wasn’t stolen but I heard multiple people grumble because they wanted that one lolol. My boyfriend ended up with a massive box that was a box inside a box inside a box and so on all the way down to a gift card for a local beer distributor.

Haha I forgot to mention that his family is Baptist and pretty serious about not drinking, although I love all the alcohol related ideas! 😛

It’s a little over your price range, but I got this phone charger/wallet that works for both android and Apple devices:
HALO Charge-It 3000
and they have all types of prints and colors! It’s useful and cute!
