This time of the year is the only time I enjoy shopping. I love buying for friends, and I especially enjoy buying for our staff gift exchange because there is a limit on the price of the gift (ours is $30). This makes buying somewhat more challenging and you’ve got to be creative which for me is fun. I looked for a non-gender gift but was not too successful.
We play a Chinese gift exchange game (has nothing to do with Chinese). If you want to know the rules go here. Essentially, everyone brings a wrapped gift and place it in the centre of the table. We begin with picking a number to see who will pick the first gift. Hopefully people will steal one another’s gift this year, last year everyone was satisfied with their gift and kept it. Or rather, no one wanted to steal someone’s gift for fear that a fight would break out. But this year, I’m going to steal to get everyone in the right mood. So, if it looks like they really like the gift they've chosen no matter what it is...i'm stealing it!
P.S. We really had an enjoyable time with everyone stealing and ending up with a gift they wanted. Except for the person who was leading the game, she ended up with a beautiful basket of chocolates. I knew she didn't really fancy them, and lucky for her I brought an extra gift for this exact reason. She decided to let the chocolates go and take the extra gift I bought, which she loved!
