So I have a family Hannukah gift grab next week, and we're all bringing a gender neutral gift for $25. I was thinking a gift card would be the easy thing (B&N, Target, Best Buy), but is that just a cop out?
I don't like gift cards. That's just me. I like them more for restaurants or movies than just for stuff.
Is it all adults? I like alcohol if it is - wine, yummy liqueurs.
Board games are also about $25.
Our office just had a white elephant gift exchange, and our limit was $10.
Here were a few of my favorites:
Sparkling juice and wine glasses (I found the wine glasses at the dollar store)
Candy and puzzle books (our office is boring sometimes)
insulated travel mug
gift cards wrapped in such a way that you can't tell what they are until you open it.
Sorry, but gift cards are boring when you don't know who will recieve it. I say, if you do give one, do like my coworker did. Put it in a box, wrap it three times with magazine paper, and stick other random, stupid cards in there... like your business cards, punch cards (buy ten get one free deals) etc.
We were laughing so hard when the recipient tore open three layers of sports illustrated before she got to a pile of random cards. Eventually, she found the gift card in the stack, but it was hilarious to watch her face when she was looking for it.
If you're going with a board game, Loaded Questions is really really fun.
I would get one of those plastic or cardboard popcorn containers and make an arrangement inside of it including a movie rental store gc, a few bags of microwave popcorn, and a few boxes of candy.
