One year someone should make the cheesecake out of soap as a surprise.

We did this at a friend's party last year and their was an almost all out brawl for the following:
A silver flask (from Target)
An ice chest (from Wal-Mart)
A snowman cake plate (from Cracker Barrel)

My sister got the flask, my husband got the ice chest, and all I got was a $5 gift card from Burger King. :frown:

Last year I ended up with the gift everyone fought over - A barn shaped cookie jar that played the "Green Acres" theme.
Love a good dirty Santa party! :haha:

One year I took clear ornaments and copied family pictures onto transparencies. You cut the pics out into a circle. You roll the transparency circle around a pencil so it's small enough to fit through the opening on the ornament. You slide the pic down inside and they pop back open and then you can see the picture. Then you just put the top back on and attach ribbon or whatever decorations you want. If anybody wants to make these the trick to figuring out what size to cut the circles is to experiment cutting them and take the negative part of the cut and when it fits exactly to the middle of the ball (when you place it over the ornament) then that is the size you need. It should set in the middle and not slide over the ball. I scrapbook so I used a circle cutter and it worked perfectly. Anyway when I made mine I used a family picture of each family and then pics of family members who had passed on. Let me tell you this was a very inexpensive gift but I thought there was going to be a knock down drag out fight. There where almost tears shed. The person who did get them ended up giving everybody their family ornament and keeping what was left.

One year I brought a Fabrege (don't think I spelled it right) styled pear at TJMaxx for $6.00. It was amazing how it was stolen from person to person.

Never had one nor been to one but it sounds like so much fun... I think this is something we might have to try this year.... I think my family would get a kick out of it.

We do this each year at our staff party/ meeting. Most of the items are things NO_ONE wants :santalol:

This year I have the items for "A Year of Romance" gift. I have the book, and I have collected items (candle, journal and pens, bath petals, tea with a teacup and saucer).

My women's circle at church does this for our January meeting, it is a RIOT! We are suppose to bring a gift that we got for Christmas that was just "wrong" ...we eat Christmas cookie left-overs, and just act the fool...It always surprises me what people go crazy over...one year it was chili pepper shaped salt and pepper shakers, another time it was fluffy chenille slippers..

We have done this as a family for the past two years. We each bring a gift ($25-$50 range) wrapped. Most brought a bigger item that was bought on a holiday sale--hence the range in prices. Gifts have ranged from drills, large musical carrosuel, shop vac, fire pit, emergency tire kit, nice set of kitchen knives, chocolate fondue, etc.


It is a lot of fun. I personally thought that the $50 was way too much. The majority were bought for around the $25-30, but probably retailed for double.

We also did a $5 gift that was something simple and played the Right, Left game with it. Some brought good natured gag gifts, unique card games, dice games, or small bath and body items, after shave, etc.
