They are doing this thing at work, called white elephant or something to do with elephant...anyway, we don't get a specific person like in a regular gift exchange. So, being that I don't know if it is a woman or man that's going to end up with the gift I buy, what are can I get?

We are doing something like that in my family. We had a limit of no more than $10. What DH and I bought were a jersey shore puzzle with some dailys booze for one of them and the other has a dvd (cost $5), some theatre size candy and two cokes. I kinda hope we end up with what we are giving hahaha.

Our children are not included snce they are the only "kids" in the family. My oldest is 3 and youngest is 7 months so we will be bringing a gift for them so they d not fee left out (even though I know my grandparents and dad will end up getting them gifts).

Is it where the person can pick either something someone else has already picked, or open a new gift? We do that at work all the time. Some peoople get funny things, some people get nicer things, I think thta it really doesnt matter what you get as long as you think it is cool since it is a game.

We've done this in our family. We've done a popular board game like apples to apple, wise or otherwise, a movie night kit: movie, popcorn, soda, and candy, warm blanket with hot cocoa or giftcard, music, nice warm gloves, scarf with hot cocoa or gift card for coffee, car cleaning kit: wipes, sponge, bucket, soap, etc. Popular book with candies.

welcome. I know one year I thought was doing a gag gift and I got the most disgusting fishing stuff I could find only to have my cousin and uncle fighting over it to go fishing with. EW!
