      We haven’t done a theme-cool idea!- but have gone to a $5 limit and get

      either a man or woman’s gift on hubby’s side of the family. We don’t

      give cheap gifts necessarily either. We all shop sales. Last year I

      was able to get a $10 book(jokes for guys) for $2 so I threw in a

      couple of lottery tickets. This year the men’s gift is a travel/shave

      kit originally $15 marked down to $5 after Christmas last year. When

      hubby saw it, he sent me back for one for him! And the woman’s gift is

      a set of inexpensive kitchen linens that I’ve embellished with a little

      crochet and a couple of crocheted wash cloths-they last practically

      forever.

      The way we do it is when it comes time for the gift exchange, we all

      draw numbers(men & women separate). The first person opens their gift

      but that is no guarantee they get to keep it. The second person

      can “steal” it. When it is #2’s turn, they can take any unwrapped gift

      or choose a wrapped one. If they choose an unwrapped one the person

      whose gift was “stolen” picks a replacement. It is sometimes funny to

      watch how often something gets passed around.
