Yankee Swap Gift Exchange

If you get together with extended family over the holidays, gift giving can get really expensive (especially if you get everyone an individual gift). To cut down on costs we have instituted a "Dirty Santa" or "Yankee Swap" gift exchange for the adults. Each person brings just one useful/practical gift and the price is usually set for around $25 or so. So no matter how many people you have in your family, nobody will spend more than $25 ($50 a couple) on gifts.

We have done them at office Christmas parties. It is hillarious when a popular item gets going. It is grabbed and grabbed again and again. To keep the thing moving, we capped the number of times one item can be taken back to three. The game is always a lot of fun.
