I chose something in my house as Madraite said it's packed and ready to go. The person I'm sending to will see my address and name on package plus the card also says who I am I thought that was OK. Was it? I dont think I can unwrap package now it's wrapped good and tight.

It's fine!

Mine will be a combo of something "white elephant" (new though) and something bought new from the store.

I promise I won't do what this boy in Nancy's 5th grade class did for their class gift exchange. He cleaned all the junk out from under his bed, threw it in a box, wrapped it, and brought it to class for the gift exchange. I can't remember what all was in there, but some poor kid got a dirty (not just dusty, but dried food) dinner knife and a lot of equally "wonderful" stuff!

This should be interesting. I don't know a lot about my "giftee" either, but I plan on making the gift a nice one and appropriate to their description. I love a challenge.
