Holiday Gift Exchange? US & CA

Does anyone here do holiday gift exchanges here with a tea theme? I do several through various work groups, and would love to do one that’s focused on tea, here. It’s even more fun if you’ve yet to ‘meet’ the person you’re sending tea/gifts to, and of course the shopping list function makes it that much more interesting (and easy) to buy for folks.

I’ve used Elfster in the past because it’s free, and because it makes it truly secret for everyone involved. http://www.elfster.com/

Anyone interested?

Yes, but only one Christmas exchange.

I’m interested. What’s the spending limit be?

MissB said

$25? To make it affordable for all? Could be less, or more, I’m open to suggestions.

CelebriTEA said

I hope this doesn’t sound bad, but I hope $25 is the minimum.
Too me…a $5 package , well, what is there to look forward to?
At least maybe $15-25…

Doesn’t sound bad at all. Input definitely welcome. I’ve done a few RedditGift exchanges where I spent hundreds on my giftee, just to receive $10 in gift cards. Which, I understand it’s more the spirit than the amount, however I completely agree with what you’re saying.

I like $25 minimum.Hopefully everyone who participates will do the right thing and spend the appropriate amount.

Is it Christmas or Winter holiday? Because that’s not really the same thing.

MissB said

I want everyone to be able to participate, and I’d say many of us celebrate something holiday-related, however only some celebrate Christmas. So, I’d leave it up to people’s discretion.

Sounds good. Any specific limit that makes you comfy?

Umm, I would love to do this, but as a younger human I definitely would not be able to spend $25 plus shipping on a package. also, I definitely think that it’s possible to spend less on a really fabulous surprise bundle.

MissB said

Oh, definitely. I’ve also received some excellent gifts over the years under that $25 threshold. I’m good with whatever the group decides.
