So my work has decided to do KK again this year, limit of $20. Only a certain section of staff. I am in it for the first time ever.
I suck at choosing gifts at the best of times. But this afternoon when I asked when we were getting our 'person', I was told that's not the way they do it, you just buy a $20 gift and then we play a game that's kind of like a lucky dip.
So now I have to try and pick a gift that could suit anyone?
I need ideas please! I also don't know whether to try and pick a 'real' gift, or a gag gift.
There are mostly women, a few men. Huge age range. Huge cultural range.

I'd get a 'real' over gag gift. Coffee cup, bottle of wine?, small set of tea leaves with strainer (from T2 etc), nice pen?

A good quality candle (maybe stay away from floral scents in case of allergies.
A little Christmas hamper
A nice Christmas decoration
Perhaps try the Christmas gift section at Myer or DJs - they'very got a huge variety of options, lots of food based ones, too.

A $20 slow cooker from big w. We do this game now with my brothers and sister. I always opt for the serious present. I always go something that i would like myself that is useful or a consumable like a box of chocolates or liquorice etc..

DHs family do something similar and it's a lot of fun. There are good presents and dodgy presents and it just adds to the fun of it. The way they do it is work out some order of how everyone chooses a present. So let's say everyone picks a number from 1-20 out of a hat.
Person 1 picks any present they like and unwraps it straight away.
Person 2 then chooses a present and unwraps it. If they want to, they can either keep their present or swap with person 1 and person 1 MUST swap.
Person 3 then chooses and unwraps. They can swap with either person 1 or person 2.
It goes on and on like this until everyone has unwrapped their present. At this point it goes back to person 1 and they get to swap their gift with anyone they like.
It's actually loads of fun, and hilarious watching people go nuts over certain things. Last time we did it, we took a ride garden gnome. It was the most swapped gift because everyone wanted it. Sometimes it makes it more fun than just boring secret Santas.
** only works if everyone brings a gift. If you don't bring a gift then you don't participate.
