If you participate in a Secret Santa at work or among friends what kinds of items do you give out as presents?

By military (DOD) regulation we had to keep all gifts at work $10 or under. We would place a list on the web page and people could put down at least 3 things they like as we have a lot of turnover and a young crowd. Most of the ladies...candles or gift cards, men either food or gamestop cards. (There are a lot of "gamers" in the military community)

We used to have a neighborhood party at my last residence. We would do a Chinese gift exchange so you did not know who would end up with the gift. Year before last I took a Zataran's cooking kit found at the grocery store. The men were fighting over it go figure.

sometimes this is what I would save my regifting items for.. Also we have a credit card where we earn cash back bonus so we get gift cards from there to use for things like this. somtime the freebees that I sign up and don't really need the item it goes in the gift closet, and the good deals I find through the year.

Christmas mug and a 5.00 Starbucks card... it would make me happy

B&BW hand soaps and anti bac are always great too!
