The gift exchange is fun to watch, even if you do not choose to participate. Participation requires a gift from each participant, suggested vale is $10-$15. (NOTE: A sense of humor is absolutely required). This is how it works:
|Purchase and wrap a gift (not a gag gift) valued at around $15, but do not identify it with a "To" or "From." We will pick numbers from # through # (however many people participate). THE PERSON WHO GETS #1 IS THE REALLY SPECIAL PERSON FOR THE NIGHT. He/she gets to choose first any gift from the stack, and later gets to make the FINAL gift choice. Person #2 can either "steal" #1's gift or choose a wrapped gift from the stack. Person #3 can "steal" #1's or #2's gift or choose a gift from the stack...and so on. Once a gift has been "stolen" three times, it is considered "dead" and is no longer available WITH ONLY ONE EXCEPTION: After the last person has taken his/her turn, THE PERSON HOLDING #1 MAY "STEAL" ANY GIFT FROM ANYONE, EVEN IF IT WAS PREVIOUSLY PRONOUNCED "DEAD" BECAUSE IT WAS "STOLEN" THREE TIMES, EXCHANGING HIS/HER GIFT FOR THIS FINAL CHOICE. With this last exchange, the activity ends. From experience, we know that rules/procedures may become unpopular when one is clinging to a "beloved" gift. Please remember that our only purpose in stating them months ahead of time is promote fairness and equity, consistency, and fun. Don't worry. Your friendships will survive.|
