Gift Exchange at Nanny's House

When I was young, we each had our Christmas at our own home Christmas morning and then rushed to Nanny's house where Great Aunts and Uncles and everyone showed up for a gathering. We used to each bring a gift. Each year it changed. One year it was adults bring an adult gift, children for children. Then one year it was men and women and boys and girls. If you didn't bring a gift, Nanny usually had extra's to pitch in for ya!

Each gift was given a # and then a piece of paper with that same # was put into a bowl. One at a time we each drew our # and received a gift. It was so enjoyable!

Because all of our family lives in different states, this year we finally got our siblings to agree to only exchange one family gift instead of buying for each person in our sibling's household. I was surprised when it came time to Christmas shop, that I had little to do!
