Trying to keep ahead of the "gift exchanges"

December 7th, 2006 at 07:19 pm

Everywhere is the gift exchanges! Yikes! The girls had a gift card exchange at girl scouts. It was only for $5 each, so that was not a bad deal, but we were short a GC, so one of my girls did'nt take one (the leaders daughters always get the short end!), but my DD2 wanted certain earrings from the mall, so I told her I would get them for her and she was happy.
Tonight is the office ladies dinner and gift exchange. Trying to hunt for something from around the house to use. It is supposed to be $15-20 gift (which I think is a little high!) I am hoping I get something decent enough to exchange at the neighborhood bunko next week!
Our regular bunko meets tomorrow and is exchanging $10 gift cards. I had one from my birthday to a store I will never go to, so I will use that one! :-) It has no restrictions on it, so I feel okay about regifting it!
Still recovering and working through the pain of recovery. I have had a certain chronic pain that just can't get away from. The doctor just said to keep taking my vicodin and it will go away. I hope shes right! It makes sleeping diffcult!

    Oooh - win some bunko money.

    I am lucky - I have no idea why - but no gift exchanges. Well one for work but that is all. I Think everyone is growing tired of them around here - phew.

    At least gift exchanges are better than gifts for everyone! I've been trying to move toward ornament exchanges. Still personal, but a lot less expensive...

    I wish I would have thought of the ornament exchange before we did the $10 gift cards! I love having new ornaments!
