Gift Exchange

Last night we had a gift exchange in the CG and it was really fun to see what others had requested. Since I only warned them of the gift exchange a week before, I thought it would be only fair to ask everyone to list down three things that they’d want for Christmas with a budget. Then the person who draws his/her name will select one of the three items.

What an eclectic bunch of gifts we all got! From toilet paper to a sophisticated test pen, there was a great of laughing as everyone excited wondered which of his or her three items were chosen. There was soap powder, floor detergent, cactus plants and a jigsaw with a frame.

The only drawback to this is that it takes away the “thought” behind the gift. But I’m all for it since it’s very practical and we end up having gifts we all know we’d use or want. Perhaps next year we need a different gift giving strategy. Any ideas?
