If I can't find a gift.... which is rare.... I have a closet full of gifts I like to be prepared, but they are mostly kid gifts- so if I can't find an appropriate gift, I go the gift card route. Something like Target, where they have lots of dif stuff.

What sort of general gift ideas do you have for others who participate in Secret Santa gift exchanges. Let's say in the $20.00 range.
Hmmmm... that's a tough one since I've never done a secret santa with family. If it were one of the guys in my family I could get away with something from their favorite football team, but for the women (easier) I would go the Avon route! I have a freind who hooks us up with great deals and I could get a great present for $20.

My husband drives me nuts by saying "warsh" instead of wash. It kills me! Also, living in the south.... there are lots of words that drive me bonkers since I was kinda raised in the north lol. But I think that is more the accent.... lol.

When we did secret santa in my family we would either give 3 ideas as what we might need/want or if the person had a collection we would add to it.

Example: I have a cousin that plays santa at Christmas time, he has a big santa collection so whenever i had his name i would find someting to add.
One year i got him a Zippo lighter with a picture of santa engraved on it.

I try not to let anything really bother me, but sometimes when i see a person type there when they mean their it can grate.

I'm not really loyal to one particular chain. I usually go where I can get the best deal.

When we go somewhere besides Disney or cruising, I usually go with the best price for what we want from one of the onsite places..........expedia, hotel.com or one of those.

Did anyone else see this? http://shine.yahoo.com/shine-food/or...211900796.html


Candy Corn OREOS!


Personally, I am not a fan of candy corn. But, I think this is a neat idea, and a fun treat for the kids.

I think the next pet we'll get will be a dog--probably a Golden Retriever.


Thanks for the tip on the Oreos. I might have to make a trip to Target next week.

No pets here, asthma, allergies and pets don't mix. And i read an article that said animals that are avertised as allergy free are really not.
