    White Elephant Gift Exchange

    I am doing a combined one of these in my nieghborhood and at the BF's work and thot it would be fun to do a virtual one. These are slightly modified directions from the actual ones but if anyone likes the idea and wants to do it in person with friends/relatives/etc. let me know and I will message the real thing to you

    The 2005 WHITE ELEPHANT EXCHANGE

    Have you ever gotten an awful or just butt-ugly gift from someone that you really want out of your house? Or received a present that is nice but you have no earthly use for? Now here is your chance to make it GO AWAY! Wrap it up and bring it to this thread for the White Elephant Exchange A.K.A. The Get Rid of An Ugly Gift Exchange

    Rules/Details:
    1. It does not have to be a new item
    2. Please try to give as detailed a description of the item as possible and the reason you want it out of your house or you can post a pic if you like
    3. Please make it something of not much value, sentimental or monetary (don’t get rid of Granny’s favorite statue)
    4. No food or perishable items
    5. Spouses/Significant others/ Kids/Friends/Aunts/Uncles/Second Cousins Twice Removed/Etc..are able to participate and encouraged to do so–the more people the more fun it will be
    6. Please try to make the item non-gender/age related as possible
    7. Items must not be broken or dirty
    8. Item must be something you already own–in other words don’t go buy something for this
    9. If someone posts an item you like you may claim it for your own as long as you have posted one to give away
    10. Once an item is claimed it is taken off the list
    11. When posting an item please Cut And Paste the list to your post.



    I hope y'all understand this

    This is just something fun to do for the holidays that won’t eat into your budget. Lets have some fun and get a present(well a virtual one anyway) all at the same time. I will go first in the next post.
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    I would like to get rid of

    A SPICE RACK because.....We bought one for my BF's mom 2 years ago for a Christmas gift and she has yet to come pick it up(along with all the other gifts for her since then) It is in my way.
    Description--wire metal rack, dusky blue in color with 6 glass bottles with corks and including the actual spices

    ^^^^that is pretty much how you can set it up for your item
    please cut and paste this part below

    Oooh fun!
    Ok, I would like to bring a 2 mug/thermos set to the gift exchange. It's brand new. We received it as an office gift, but we already have tons of coffee mugs & neither of us drink coffee. They are very nice & have never been used. Enjoy!


    THE LIST
    A Spice Rack
    2 mug + thermos set
    "What ARRRRGH you doing?"

    "What are you doing?"
    "No, What ARRRRGH you doing?"

    I have an Elvis Presly mug I got as an office gift last year. We have, literally, 120 mugs already in our office, and about 15 people work here. It is a white mug, with black detailing. a photo of Elivis on one side, and on the other, a quote of his saying, "I think most people have a natural instinct to rebel."
    It's cool, but hard to have a conversation with my boss about his idea of "getting in line" with his ideas when I am holding an Elvis mug about rebelling...

    Nope.. he's not.. So I will add him to the list...

    One Husband.. Who at the current moment is sick and whinney... He has a good work ethic but that stops at the door.. At home he is nice and lazy.. he will eventually get off his butt to scratch it and that ends there.. He will not change the garbage so don't even ask!! He will do dishes but only when they are made out of paper and plastic... but don't expect him to put them in the trash.. they will go on the end table next to his empty beer bottle.. He comes fully cranky and ready to sleep.. no batteries are required!!! All trades are final.. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!!
    THE LIST

    One lazy husband

    Okay, that pic was blocked by my filter. That is pretty scary then! I will have to try at home later. Too bad that my mind will be running wild all afternoon.
