Question An idea just for fun

This is just a idea for fun this holiday, what if we traded a gift each of something we have around our house (kind of like rummage sale stuff).
There would need to be a numbers drawn and the item must be like new or something new from around your house.
Should we even try, who would be interested?
This would only cost the price of shipping and I just thought it might be fun.

You can save on the cost of shipping by simply posting pictures of the gifts. Like they say, it's the thought that counts.

Isn't this also called the "white elephant gifts"?? When you exchange previously owned items.....would you know or should it matter if your gift is for a male or female? Or would you try to make it a unisex item??


I'm in, on whatever is decided! I love secret santa type things!!
